[Translators-l] 24 Hour Global Fundraising test - issues? problems? Hungarian appearing as Turkish?

The status box for the landing page and banners in Italian ( https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Translate-status/Fundraising_2012/it ) shows that this year's translations have not yet been published. (they are marked either proofreading or update translation).  I think that the banners and landing page you are seeing on the Italian wikipedia must be last year's translations.  So personally (as a fellow translator - not an admin) I would recommend you to finish the proofreading and translation of this year's messages by clicking on the 'proofreading' and 'update translation' links.  When finished you should change the status to ready and request publishing of the messages. When this year's messages are published the messages you see currently should disappear, except if you are in Switzerland, France or Germany.

As far as I can see, the fundraiser translations for this year in most languages have not yet been published. So the same problem has been reported also from Japan.

I am surprised that you can disable the fundraising banners in Italian - can you explain how you can do this and we cannot do this on our wiki.

There are all sorts of errors in the Italian banners but I'm unable to point people to where they can correct them. I tried the following:
1) Special:Search on all namespaces
2) looked for a link on https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fundraising_2012/Translation
3) https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Translate-status/Fundraising_2012/it
4) Fundraising 2012 aggregate group <https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ATranslate&taction=proofread&group=agg-Fundraising_2012&limit=1000&task=acceptqueue>
5) "Fundraising 2012/Translation/Landing Page and Banner messages" <https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ATranslate&taction=proofread&group=page-Fundraising+2012%2FTranslation%2FLanding+Page+and+Banner+messages&limit=1000&task=acceptqueue>

Some errors I found seem to have already been corrected in the past in some places but not not recently and not (as far as I can see) in the messages currently in use (of course, as I didn't find them).

I'm currently pointing people to https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Fundraising_2012/Translation

In the meanwhile, to avoid a revolt on it.wiki against the fundraising team, I'll disable the banner in Italian. Thanks.
