Import translations from translatewiki.net
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

The Wikimedia foundation sponsored the development of modular translation layer which allows the translation strings to be imported from a separate repository. Translations exist for several languages that are not in the core phabricator code base and work continues on translatewiki.net to improve the quality and completeness of the translations.

The output gets integrated into the repo at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/source/phabricator-translations/ by a combination of automated commits from translatewiki and a manual compile step which I run occasionally as part of code deployments.

It would probably be valuable to include some of these translations with phorge or and least to include documentation about how to install them.

The effort to rebrand Phabricator is going to result in changes to a lot of text which would likely invalidate a large number of translation entries.

Ouch. Having said a well settled sed can help with this.

Once the rebranding is complete we can send updated strings to translatewiki so that everything remains in sync.
