Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
TemplateData is structured data on Template documentation pages that Visual Editor uses to label and describe template fields. However, many of these templates have been imported from English wiki and therefore are English language. For example, the citation templates currently being used in Welsh Wikipedia are all in English, as shown here:

This is a common issue on smaller language wikis. The goal of this session will be to translate the citation templates on cy wiki to Welsh and also leave participants with the ability to translate template data of other templates in the future, whether that's on cy wiki or in their own language.
