Thank you, Fabrice, Benny Situ and EE team!
"Thanks" feature is still being translated so I could not check it
properly in my tests. But I was trying to check whether gender
variations will apply. If we say "this user has thanked you", no
variation would apply. But if we use "thank you", then it does: Obrigado
(for male) and Obrigada (for female), being the variation applied for
the gender of the user who is thanking (and not the one being thanked).
In the translation tool, I didn't find where/how to provide the 2 options.
Yes, gender support seems to be present almost everywhere in the
extension. I found what I believe is a documentation error, pending
It does use the gender of the thanker (though I can't help but wonder if
there's some language that uses the recipient, or both).
In general, MediaWiki handles this with a gender magic word. See
I don't use TranslateWiki, so I don't know if they have a special
interface for this, or you enter the magic word directly.
