I'm trying to bring the Spanish translations in the wiki to a decent
state, as well as introducing minor updates into some base pages.
My problem is that the wiki interface in Spanish is only
half-translated, at the best, if not entirely misleading, as some links
take you to empty pages (in example, when you click on help for
searching in the Spanish UI). The previous translator translated the
LinkNames (instead of es/LinkName, or leaving them as it is since there

of the wiki. Would it be possible to get them in order to translate the
Spanish UI, and redirect those empty links to proper pages with content?

show those options to a regular user.

inconveniences, particularly the ones regarding the Spanish UI,as they
are misleading (in case they offer any information) to a spanish
