Meta-Wiki is supposed to be multilingual, but as of July 2004 it was 85% English (as of January 2005, an influx of new German pages, Japanese & French translations, and translator-work has improved this to perhaps 75%). Wikimedia, if it is to maintain a coherent image and policy-set across the world, and to benefit from the input of its many members (It is already the case that the majority of WM users do not natively speak/read english!), needs to ramp up its multilingual efforts.

Multilingual information[edit]

Though a certain page tends to be monolingual, we can provide information to speakers of other languages, too. sic

Sidebar

You can add a sidebar of page summary, it describes the purpose of page, like this page. Please translate the text in the sidebar into the languages you know, and add links below into pages on multilingualism on the WPs you frequent. Encourage colleagues who don't write in English to contribute their thoughts/ideas on this page and its Talk: page in their own language.

We think important documents are better to have such summary sidebar multingual.

Abstract

You can add an abstract of page with Template:Abstract. Abstract is useful when the page treats a complicated issue and you want to give more information than one line description.

Translators

If you are proficient in more than one language, add yourself to the list of translators (and see also There is also an English Wikipedia available). You may also be interested in the discussion of the translation process.
