           Summary: TimedMediaHandler should support non-English namespace
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: master
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: i18n
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: TimedMediaHandler
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

It is good practice for MediaWiki extensions to support non-English namespace
names (while having the English name as canonical name).

This doesn't appear to be the case at the moment, as "TimedText" and
"TimedText_talk" are hard-coded inside TimedMediaHandler.hooks.php and there's
no i18 file for the namespaces (if I understand correctly).

It should be possible for TimedMediaHandler to support namespace localization,
not only for Wikimedia wikis but also for third parties. (For instance, the
Portuguese Wikipedia community has requested that in bug 58984 comment 2.)
