Paladox created this task.

Seems to work on thesimswiki, but many other wikis this is broken like on meta, allthetropes wiki and solara.

It seems that the error is happening in not only project namespaces but also another namespaces of non-English wiki.
For example, template namespace and user namespace are not working properly. It is because namespace's name has been changed into Mediawiki's English original.

My wiki has italian set as language but today doesn't recognize the italian localization for "Category:". Also, it's been a few days since the editor tools (Vector) won't show up, and it happened after link auto-complete started working.

EDIT: it's happening to all the default namespaces: , Help (should be Aiuto), Talk (Discussioni) etc.

EDIT 2: signatures as wikitext also don't get substituted, the {{SUBST:whatever}} thing gets printed unparsed.

Changes rolled back for now.

It works again on Christipediawiki. Thank you for solving the problem.
