Summary: Replace existing text for Babel categories
Product: MediaWiki extensions

Feature request: currently on Wikidata, which is a multilingual website, there
have been a lot of language categories created with type "Category:User xx" and
with the header "Users in this category indicate they have knowledge of
language <language>" which is populated from
MediaWiki:Babel-autocreate-text-levels. I have had to replace many of these
headers with a separate template called Template:Babelcat for the purposes of
localization, but it was extremely tedious to do by hand and I've never
My proposal is to make the category header "Users in this category indicate
they have knowledge of language <language>" localizable. To do this, I propose
making the script User:Babel AutoCreate run through already existing Babel
categories again to update them with localizable messages through
MediaWiki:Babel-autocreate-text-levels. Or have it run when the text in
MediaWiki:Babel-autocreate-text-levels is replaced with Template:Babelcat.
