Visual Editor is almost here![redigér wikikode]
- please translate this recap message if you can :)
Greetings from the Wikimedia Foundation, da.wp editors. I am posting to update about the VisualEditor (VE) editing interface. It is a new, visual way to edit Wikipedia, as you know from our prior messages. We would like to deploy VisualEditor on this Wikipedia soon, and we would like to get editors' opinions on the new platform.
To test VisualEditor, you can enable it by going to "Preferences" "Editing" → "Enable VisualEditor". After doing this, you will see two options for editing an article. We welcome your feedback, and would like to know about any problems or "bugs" experienced on da.wp. It is also important that VisualEditor's buttons and labels are translated into Danish, along with several important help documents. If you have English skills, you can help out at Translatewiki.net (just a few messages to go!) and VisualEditor's TranslationCentral on mediawiki.org. You must have an account on Translatewiki.net to translate.
We expect to enable VisualEditor here on Tuesday, 24 September unless there any critical bugs with your particular Wikipedia that you find during testing. Enabling VisualEditor here for everyone will help the software to be developed and improved to meet the needs of all users. After the rollout the new editor will be displayed side-by-side with the button to edit using wikitext. Once VisualEditor is enabled you will have the option to disable it in your preferences so that you will no longer see it while it is in beta testing. We hope that you do not chose to do that because it would limit the opportunities to find out how we can make VisualEditor better for the Danish Wikipedia. The option to edit using wikitext will not be going away. Thank you for your comments, and happy editing, --Elitre (WMF) (diskussion) 9. sep 2013, 23:22 (CEST)
- Hi there, just a little update, the VE rollout here has been slightly delayed - this means you have a few days more to get fully prepared! As some of you know, here is a sort of "checklist" of major tasks. Now the interface is fully translated, congratulations! For other key translations, you can improve those started at mw.org (user guide - portal main page - TemplateData), for a start, or work locally. Your feedback about VE is welcome at mw:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thanks for what you will do! --Elitre (WMF) (diskussion) 24. sep 2013, 23:35 (CEST)
