Hey Praveen,

This mailing list is more for the translation of Wikimedia
Foundation-related things, like WikimediaFoundation.org, the board
elections, fundraising stuff, and other things like that.

MediaWiki-related translation questions should be asked on
translatewiki itself[1].  (There is a mediawiki-i18n mailing list[2]
too, but it's not really used.)

Sorry for the confusion!

Many language has a different sentence structure, so, automatically inserted (read as in English way) symbols cannot merge, with localized message. It is highly stressful to manage them with sentence (or part of sentence) structure. I afraid in this message http://translatewiki.net/wiki/MediaWiki:Watchlistfor2 it is almost impossible in Malayalam, so I am trapezing on words. If this is the case for Malayalam I am sure that all Indic languages are facing same problem, and probably many other languages.
