main page Request for a new language edition: Wikipedia Ladino
submitted verification final decision
Application-certificate.svg This proposal has been approved.
The Board of Trustees and language committee have deemed that there is sufficient grounds and community to create the new language project.

A committee member provided the following comment:

The requested project was created at lad: at an indeterminate date. Note that this request was approved before the implementation of the standardised Language proposal policy, and should not be used as a model for future requests. —{admin} Pathoschild 05:36, 21 December 2006 (UTC)
  • 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:
What Value Example / Explanation
Proposal
Language code lad (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Ladino Language name in English
Language name romani Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...
Language Wikidata item Item about the language at Wikidata. It would normally include the Wikimedia language code, name of the language, etc. Please complete at Wikidata if needed.
Community
You can optionally list your user name if you are an active contributor to the test wiki. Add "N" next to your name if you are a native speaker of this language.
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Settings
Project name Wikipedia "Wikipedia" in your language
Project namespace usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace "Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads yes Default is "no". Preferably, files should be uploaded to Commons.
If you want, you can enable local file uploading, either by any user ("yes") or by administrators only ("admin").
Notes: (1) This setting can be changed afterwards. The setting can only be "yes" or "admin" at approval if the test creates an Exemption Doctrine Policy (EDP) first. (2) Files on Commons can be used on all Wikis. (3) Uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info). (4) Localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons.
Optional settings
Project logo 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone "Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)
Additional namespaces For example for a Wikisource which would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk"
Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

    • Hey all! I'd like to formally request a Ladino Wiki lad.wikipedia.org and lad.wiktionary.org for the Ladino/Judeo-Spanish with ISO 639 code of 'lad'. The Ladino Komunita is quite alive and going through a renewal of sorts. There are live broadcasts in Ladino in Spanish and Israeli radio/tv and quite few periodicals are written in it. With regards, Jay B. (en:User:ILVI)
    • I can't speak Ladino, Mr. Bowks, but I wish you luck. Almafeta 6 July 2005 07:50 (UTC)
    • I don't speak Ladino either, but I do know a number of elderly people who once spoke the language, and feel that they would appreciate having others use it and learn in it. It is certainly a language worthy of its own Wikipedia and I fully support the creation of one. DavidL 7 July 2005
    • I don't speak Ladino, but I do speak Standard Spanish and can understand Ladino/Judeo-Spanish very well and I would like to read articles in it. I support the creation of its own wiki. Jazmin 7 July 2005 20:40 (UTC)
    • Muy interesante su idea. Si me puede dar información al respecto, desde Sevilla, procuraré difundir la idea y colaborar. Aan27ms 18:08, 15 July 2005 (UTC)

    • <b>Weak problem: In the English Ladino talk page, it says that there are multiple names for this language, not just Ladino, some of which imply things about the language. Although it looks like you've got no objections, you'll need to show which is the most neutral and most widely accepted name for the language to get this proposal to work. Almafeta 08:06, 17 July 2005 (UTC)
      • No problem, though, because Ladino is the language as it is known in the ISO codes, the other names are descriptions of the language more or less, like djudeo-espanyol and djudezmo, which make reference to it being a language used by djudios but the language is a form of espanyol and the usual name for this form of espanyol (i.e. Spanish) is Ladino. So Ladino should be the name used, and the ISO code is "lad", also the SIL code is "lad".
        • Alrighty, then. By the way, with six users (three native speakers) to start the wiki off, multiple votes of support, and the only objection taken care of, I think it's safe to say your proposal will be accepted, Mr. Bowks... Almafeta 16:29, 19 July 2005 (UTC)
