There are too many tags (T:1 T:2.....) in one page . I know these tags help bot sync original pages and translated pages .But it take me a lot of time to paste traditional chinese translation into zh-tw page (traditional chinese can be coverted from simplified chinese by software ). When I translate simplified chinese, I use Extension:Translate . When I translate traditional chinese , I need to edit page directly to paste the whole content into zh-tw page.

Is it possible to edit page directly ?

Unfortunately no, and even if it was, all changes would be undone next time the bot goes to update the page template. The best option I can see is to make a bot that automatically does the transliteration when a Chinese translation is made.

Is it possible to make such bot ? Mediawiki can convert between simplified chinese and traditional chinese automatically when we set its language setting to chinese (the file ZhConversion.php ) . This function is default disabled in english mediawiki

I think Qiii2006's request in his last reply is fairly reasonable. There are not much differences between simplified and traditional Chinese. We can merge all variants to a single Chinese version and can be converted each other. The ZhConversion.php file used by zh.wikipedia.com can be found here . The translations may benefit to the whole Chinese community finally.
