Help for translate[កែប្រែ]
Hello and sorry for writing in English. Can anyone help me translate a small article (2 paragraphs) from English to your language and create the article in your wiki? Please, fell free to answer in my talk page in your wiki anytime. Thanks! Xaris333 (ការពិភាក្សា) ម៉ោង០០:១៥ ថ្ងៃព្រហស្បតិ៍ ទី១៤ ខែសីហា ឆ្នាំ២០១៤ (UTC)
The visual editor will be enabled on this wiki in some days[កែប្រែ]
Hello again. Please excuse the English. Please help translate to your language. សូមអរគុណ!
As per previous announcements earlier this year, the visual editor (ឧបករណ៍កែប្រែតាមគំហើញ) will be enabled at this Wikipedia in some days. It allows people to edit articles as if they were using a typical word processor. Here's a quick explanation of what is going to happen: you can find a more detailed one, with pictures, at mediawiki.org.
- What's changing?
- In the new system, you get a single edit tab which follows your preferences, and that therefore will launch the wikitext editor or the visual editor depending on which one you opened the last (ចងចាំមុខងារកែប្រែដែលខ្ញុំបានប្រើចុងក្រោយ).
This applies to everyone who edited recently, including anonymous users.
- How do I switch to the other editor then?
- Buttons on the toolbars of both editors were added months ago so that you can switch from one to the other every time you want to, without losing your changes and without having to save first.
The button, located on the right side of the toolbar, looks like square brackets ([[ ]]) in the visual editor, and like a pencil () in the wikitext editor.
- Are there other options available?
- Yes. You can choose whether you want:
- អោយខ្ញុំប្រើមុខងារកែប្រែតាមគំហើញជានិច្ចបើអាច (if you temporarily switch to the wikitext editor through the button on the toolbar, the system won't remember it; also, it only applies to namespaces where the visual editor is available).
- អោយខ្ញុំប្រើមុខងារកែប្រែកូដ (if you temporarily switch to the visual editor through the button on the toolbar, the system won't remember it)
- បង្ហាញថេបមុខងារកែប្រែទាំងពីរ (a system in place at multiple wikis since 2013. You are familiar with this option if you have been using the visual editor here.)
- Please note: all the users will always have the opportunity to switch to the other editor via buttons on the toolbars, for occasional edits.
- How do I set my preference?
- If you want to try or to stay in the new system: you don't need to do anything.
- If you had explicitly disabled the visual editor in the past and want to keep it disabled: you don't need to do anything.
- All the registered users have a dropdown menu in the Editing tab of their Preferences (កំណែប្រែ --> ម៉ូដកែប្រែ៖), where they can choose from. This only needs to be done once. Don't forget to save ;)
- Users with the visual editor disabled need to re-enable it if they're interested in accessing that menu!
- People who use the visual editor regularly will see a pop-up (only once after the single edit tab system is introduced), and they can choose their favorite setting there. Of course, they can change their mind at any time just like the others, and pick a different setting from their Preferences.
- Anonymous users who have used the visual editor recently will also be able to choose which editor they want to edit with.
- Reminder: all the users will always have the opportunity to switch to the other editor via buttons on the toolbars, for occasional edits.
- Final remarks
- Please spread the word about this major change in any way that you deem appropriate for this community, by linking to this announcement elsewhere, putting up a site notice, etc. Please note it will affect all the registered users at first, and after some days it will reach logged-out contributors as well if no major technical issues have arisen. Don't hesitate to ask questions, I'll be around for a while to help!
- Please do let us know about any anomalies you think you're experiencing, and do post any other feedback below. I'd like to thank everyone who works to make the transition easier for this community, and whoever will help me processing feedback in your language.
- You can learn more about optimizing the visual editor experience here by reading a guide on mediawiki.org.
The visual editor is now active here[កែប្រែ]
Hello again. This message is only available in English at this time: Please help translate to your language. សូមអរគុណ!
As some of you have noticed, this Wikipedia now has the visual editor (ឧបករណ៍កែប្រែតាមគំហើញ) enabled for all registered users. The rollout to logged-out users will likely happen in a week or so.
For an explanation of how the editing system now works and how to choose/go back to your favorite setting, please see my previous announcement above. If you wish to change your editing system preferences now, this can be done from this link to your Preferences --> កំណែប្រែ --> ម៉ូដកែប្រែ៖.
All edits using the visual editor will be tagged with "កែប្រែតាមគំហើញ" in recent changes, watchlists, and page histories. To access the User Guide for the visual editor, click on the "(?)" icon in its toolbar.
Please let us know if you find any problems. You can report issues directly in Phabricator, the new bug tracking system or on at mw:VisualEditor/Feedback; by all means, feel free to also ping or contact me directly if you prefer. In case of emergency (like an unexpected bug causing widespread problems), please contact James Forrester, the product manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on IRC in the #mediawiki-visualeditor channel.
Happy editing! Respectfully, Elitre (WMF) --ម៉ោង១៨:៥៦ ថ្ងៃអង្គារ ទី១១ ខែតុលា ឆ្នាំ២០១៦ (UTC)

Help Improving Search for Khmer[កែប្រែ]
Hello! Sorry for writing in English. Please help translate to your language.
I'm trying to improve search on Khmer wikis by automatically re-ordering the characters in Khmer text so that words that look the same will be matches when searching. For example, សាស្ត្រាចារ្យ and សាស្រ្តាចារ្យ. The first one has (ស + ្ត + ្រ) and the second has (ស + ្រ + ្ត). The first one gets 152 results on Khmer Wikipedia and the second gets 67 results. I'd like them both to get all the results.
I need help reviewing the syllables I've re-ordered to make sure they are correct. I also have found some syllables that I don't understand, and I would appreciate any help to explain them. The examples, with context, are on Mediawiki. Comments here or on the discussion page there would be very helpful.
Improving the translation support for the Khmer Wikipedia[កែប្រែ]
Sorry about not being able to write in Khmer.
Content translation has been successful in supporting the translation process on many Wikipedia communities, and we want to help additional wikis with potential to grow using translation as part of a new initiative.
Content translation facilitates the creation of Wikipedia articles by translating content from other languages. It has been used already to create more than half a million articles. In addition, the tool provides mechanisms to encourage the creation of good quality content, preventing the publication of lightly edited machine translations. In general, our analysis shows that the translations produced are less likely to be deleted than the articles started from scratch.
Khmer Wikipedia editors have used Content translation to create more than a hundred articles. Given the size of the editing community, we think that there is potential to use translation to create more articles, expand existing ones, and attract new editors that learn how to make productive edits. Translation can help the community to reduce the language gap with other languages and grow the number of editors in a sustainable way. In order to achieve this goal, we want to collaborate with you to make Content translation more visible in the Khmer Wikipedia and support new ways to translate.
As a first step, during the next weeks we plan to enable Content translation by default on the Khmer Wikipedia. That will make it easy for users to discover the tool through several entry points. However, users not interested in translation will still be able to disable it from their preferences.
