Forum:I spotted a grammatical error on my Swedish wiki. How can I fix them?

In the Recent Changes it says "På denna sida kan du följa med de nyasta ändringarna i Pokémonwikin." this is grammatically incorrect as it should be "På denna sida kan du följa med de nyaste ändringarna i Pokémonwikin." instead. How can I fix this or where should I turn? --Raltseye (talk) 22:10, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

I encourage you to be bold, and go ahead! Edit the page to fix it!
Well, if the page is protected (see Help:Protection for more details), you can, depending on the protection level, contact any autoconfirmed user or any administrator. (Though this is unlikely, because you said that your Pokémon Wiki is my Swedish wiki, therefore most likely you're the admin.) --stranger195 (talkcontribsguestbook) 11:53, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
Yes, you're correct to guess that I'm the admin of said wiki. But I don't think that's relevant since this is in the recent changes text. That is the text that explains the recent changes, that is in MediaWiki or Shoutwiki itself. I can't change that for what I know and even if I could, this error would still be present in my other wiki and all other wikis in Swedish. Put simply, this must be changed on a central level so that it's fixed everywhere. --Raltseye (talk) 12:29, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
All ShoutWiki messages are defined in Interface Messages Wiki. The message in question is "Recentchanges-summary/sv". Leave a note on talk page there, or maybe you could apply for edit rights there, as there aren't any Swedish translators. --miki-- (talk) 14:40, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
Ah, thank you. Though it doesn't seem like I can create a talk page there or maybe I don't get how to. I have already contacted Jack Phoenix about becoming a Swedish translator. Hope he'll reply. --Raltseye (talk) 14:49, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
Although you can override it, the default system text is supplied by MediaWiki software. Is the same syntax error present on Wikipedia? If the bug is present in current MediaWiki software, the best place to file a bug report is at or, possibly, --Saftzie (talk) 18:20, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
Nope, this template is something only used here as far as I know. On wikipedia it says "Följ de senaste ändringarna i wikin på denna sida." without the box. --Raltseye (talk) 22:53, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
Hmm, yeah, that's on mwmsg. Any staff, but only staff, can edit it. Jack Phoenix was the right contact. It might take a little while to get changed. --Saftzie (talk) 07:52, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
Yeah as long as it gets done take your time. By the way it should be "På denna sida kan du följa de senaste ändringarna i Pokémonwikin" instead. It's a better choice of words ^ --Raltseye (talk) 13:32, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
