main page Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Talysh
submitted verification final decision
Applications-system.svg This language has been verified as eligible.
The language is eligible for a project, which means that the subdomain can be created once there is an active community and a localized interface, as described in the language proposal policy. You can discuss the creation of this language project on this page.

Once the criteria are met, the language committee can proceed with the approval, will verify the test project content with a reliable neutral source, such as a professor or expert and notify the Board of Trustees for a possible veto.

If you think the criteria are met, but the project is still waiting for approval, feel free to notify the committee and ask them to consider its approval.

  • The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics, recent changes). It is generally considered active if the analysis lists at least three active, not-grayed-out editors listed in the sections for the previous few months.
  • The community needs to complete required MediaWiki interface translations in that language (about localization, translatewiki, check completion).
  • The community needs to discuss and complete the settings table below:

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support: Native speakers of Talysh have the competency and willingness to contribute to this project in the long-term. Hence the Talysh language deserves to be given the opportunity and priviledge to have its own language edition of Wikipedia along with the existing Northwestern Iranian language family such as Mazanderani, Gilaki, Kurdish and so on. There are 900,000 speakers [3]. --Jose77 (talk) 21:04, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

What script does your language use? The project name is written in Cyrillic while the test project content in written with Latin.--Nxx (talk) 19:05, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

This was wrong. We want to make it with Latin script. --Aliyev1 (talk) 10:00, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
here--Talisoglu (talk) 08:56, 3 February 2014 (UTC)


This will help page --Erdemaslancan (talk) 10:17, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
So it'll make Latin first, then convert into Cyrillic and Arabic.

If so, I'll write here.--Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 01:59, 19 January 2014 (UTC)


Hello. Currently, Talysh Wikipedia is built on Latin script base. After our discussions we came to conclusion that Talysh Wikipedia should be based and developed on Latin script. Nowadays, most of the Talysh people are able to read and use Latin script. Even, books, newspapers, magazines in Talysh language are written in Latin script in Azerbaijan. This gives opportunity for Talysh Wiki to be based on Latin script. But in the future, persian and cyrillic versions will also be available. This will provide opportunity for the Talyshi people who use these scripts.--Talisoglu (talk) 19:43, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
