1. Does not let me edit.
2. Does not link to Wiktionary to let people edit.
Editing should happen on Wiktionary and I will add a link to it. I
just could not decide how to add the links in every case, yet. When
you have a en->de translation, the translation entry could be in the
en Wiktionary or the de Wiktionary or in both. The best solution I've
found so far is to link to the en Wiktionary on the one side and the
de Wiktionary on the other side. But that could lead to non-existent
pages, which will probably confuse users who want to see all the
details for that displayed translation. I'm not really happy with
3. Does not show word meanings. Different meanings
have different translations.
Yes, this should definitively be added. When first trying this, I had
problems with the differences between different Wiktionaries, so I
postponed to get the basics working first.
4. Consider writing a "skin" for
itself. MediaWiki is quite extensible and I feel the potential is
An interesting suggestion. I don't know much about MediaWiki, but I
thought it would be impossible to show translations from many
different pages with just a skin. Also, I could not find a way to
search for translations well enough last time I looked. Generally, I
had the impression that MediaWiki does not really understand the
meaning of most of the page and treats it just as formatting, which
limits what I can do in many ways.
Thanks for you feedback,
