What this page is about[edit]

This page addresses translation within Wikimedia projects, introduces the translators' list, pages for messages, and pages that need translating into every language, and introduces translators' communication channels. See also Translation subcommittee. Related general information can be found at translation process and multilingualism. Contacts with language/theme-oriented projects are also listed at Wikimedia embassy and Wikipedia languages.

About translation within Wikimedia[edit]

There are thousands of multilingual editors in the Wikimedia community. Most spend their time on local wikis, oblivious to other communities. Here on the Meta-Wiki, there are also translation requests for translation into many languages at once. Shortly after it was set up, we distributed an international press release in August/September 2004 across the world in 12 languages within five days.

Since 2006, Transcom (officially Translation subcommittee) is responsible in translation of information from Wikimedia Foundation. They maintain translation requests pages and other communication channels.

To support communications on the Foundation issue in each language powerfully, a team of translation coordinators per language is being planned.

To practice your language skills on something short and sweet, please see the Translation of the week. Wikipedia's sister projects offer similar globally-coordinated translation opportunities, too.

How to translate a Meta article[edit]

To translate an article on Meta, see Help:Preparing a page for translation.

To translate an article on a particular project (Wikipedia or its sister projects), go to the appropriate-language domain (e.g., fr.wikipedia.org for Wikipedia article into French) and create the translated page there; then add Wikipedia Interlanguage links to both the original and the translated articles.

Translators on meta[edit]

The past list since August 2006 is available at Translation/list.

Would you like to find a translator from a certain language to another? You may find translators by language at Translator in the following language combinations. Translators are sorted into categories by combinations of the two languages, thanks to the Transbabel template. Their competence in both languages may be found in the Babel templates on their user pages.

Would you like to join the Wikimedia translator team? Put Transbabel template(s) on your meta user page to let other Wikimedians know which languages you can help them with. Visit our translation request pages to seek out a place where you can help. We Wikimedia translators always appreciate your offers of help, and hope you will enjoy working with us!

Translation requests[edit]

As a center of project coordination, Meta offers you several translation requests. Most of the requests are for translation into several core languages, but ideally into every language. Current requests may be found at Translation requests. Requests on that page are mostly related to Wikimedia Foundation issues. However, if local projects have a request for translation, either multilingual or single-language, they are invited to submit their requests at that page.

You may request mail translation on translators-l, too. Subscribers may forward the mail needing translation, along with a note saying which language(s) you need and what the destination should be. If you would like to get a copy of the translation, please set Reply-to: to your own address and note that. If you would like the translators to disseminate the translated message to other Wikimedia mailing lists, please say so in your message.

For article content translation, most local projects have pages dedicated to translating their contents. For example, Traductions en cours on the French Wikipedia, Translations into English on the English Wikipedia, and others. If you are interested in content translation in general and its global promotion, you may wish to join the content translation group.

Communication channels[edit]

Babylon is the Wikimedia translators' center. It provides both latest news on Wikimedia translations and wiki-based communication opportunities with other translators. Be sure not to confuse it with Babel, the general discussion page on Meta.

For more involved discussions, you may wish to use other channels;
