Hi.

If your language has feminine and masculine forms for occupations, and your
Wikipedia embeds occupations from Wikidata and applies the female label in
case of P21 equalling 'female', please make sure your code also uses the
feminine form for P21 equalling 'transgender female'.

I just made this correction on the Hebrew Wikipedia, here:

https://he.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=%D7%99%D7%97%D7%99%D7%93%D7%94:PropertyLink&diff=23476280&oldid=22940410


(note that the diff is right-to-left here, i.e. my new code is on the
*left*.) [I know, I know...]

Cheers,

A.
