This collaboration of the week is active as of Monday, April 4, 2005.
Goal: To create a coherent standard multilingual help for the MediaWiki software which runs all Wikimedia projects.
- Before you start writing your Help, make sure there is a "Help" namespace in your language here on Meta (see #Namespaces below). If not, put it in the list of open namespace requests, and Eloquence will set it up for you.
- Create a table of contents at your local equivalent of Help:Contents.
- Import help pages from Wikipedia. Be sure to respect the GNU FDL when doing so, e.g.:
- This page is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License. It is based on the page Wikipedia:How to edit a page on the English Wikipedia
- Remove Wikipedia-specific (or even Wikimedia-specific) references. Make sure that all links pointing outside the documentation are external links, so the help can be copied into any wiki without necessarily having InterWiki prefixes set up.
- Make sure that all pages share a standard header and footer template that can be used for custom text.
- All images should begin with a prefix: "Help_English_", "Hilfe_Deutsch_", etc., so that all images belonging to the help can be easily located.
The following namespaces are prepared for help pages in the various languages. Separate namespaces make it possible to use a script to extract all help pages in one language, so they can be copied and imported easily.

Open namespace requests - these will be set up soon:
Please put non-existent namespaces here and not in the above list - preferably the name is the same as on local projects; however, additional identifiers like "CA" and "NL" have to be used if the namespace name already exists, for a clear separation in the database.
