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 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). 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:

Proposal[edit]

Hello my dear wikimedians, Georgian language is one of the older languages in the world, Georgian Language has its alphabet, there are more than 2050 pages in our wikisource. Main Page is ready, to, and Georgian wikimedians will make logo. Ok, good bye, I think it is good to make georgian wikisource, because there are many writters in Georgia, and there were, such as Ilia Chavchavaze, Shota Rustaveli, Akaki Tsereteli, Galaktion Tabize and etc. They were great persons and writters, they were patriots of the country, such as Ilia Chavchavaze killed by rebels.

Old but good argument: Georgian is the most pervasive of the South Caucasian languages, a family that also includes Svan and Megrelian and Laz . The Georgian alphabet is traditionally said to have been invented in the 5th century BC and reformed by King Parnavaz I of Iberia in 284 BC. Most modern scholarship puts its origin date at some time in the 5th century AD, when the earliest examples can be found. Generally speaking the most ancient Georgian written book is the Martyrdom of the Holy Queen Shushanik (also translated as The Passion of Saint Shushanik; Georgian: წამებაჲ წმიდისა შუშანიკისი დედოფლისაჲ, C’amebay C’midisa Shushanikisi Dedop’lisay) is the first extant piece of Georgian literature. Purported to have been written between 476 and 483, the earliest surviving manuscript dates from the 10th century. The author is Iakob Tsurtaveli (Jacob of Tsurtavi).

In favour I'll add, that putting full documents in a wikipedia articles became more frequent last time, like this one. That is the matter of demand for such project.

  • Support It sounds fine to me. I will say it to LangCom. Evertype 14:06, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Support Sounds like a future great source of information. Too bad the localisation of MediaWiki (72%) and MediaWiki extensions used by Wikimedia (8%) is still pretty bad. How about a translation rally on translatewiki.net and you guys will be able to rock soon in your own Wikisource!? Siebrand 23:03, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

    More votes aren't needed here.
    It can be safely said at this stage that there's consensus that such project can be created. But for that to actually happen, the localization in translatewiki.net must be completed and there must be real activity in the current Test Wikisource project. --Amir E.

Arguments against[edit]

Other discussion[edit]

  • How long is there left untill the project is created? --Gaeser 17:39, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
    • Currently 59.99% of messages of extensions used by Wikimedia projects are translated. Those messages should be fully translated before the project would be approved (as well as the first two groups which are currently 100% translated). More details at TranslateWiki. --Millosh 02:28, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
      • @Millosh: Do the first two columns or three here need to be 100% in order to open the Georgian Wikisource?--Dixtosa (talk) 09:56, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Localization update[edit]

  • Currently 99.48% of MediaWiki messages and 88.07% of messages from the main extensions used by Wikimedia projects are translated. Those messages must be fully translated before the project would be approved. More details at TranslateWiki. --Amir E. Aharoni 23:00, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Loc Update 2017[edit]

At this moment 100% of MediaWiki (most important messages) is translated. Also 97% of MediaWiki core and 100% of Translatewiki.net is done. What else is needed to get approved? --OpusDEI (talk) 13:06, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

October 2017[edit]

Currently, 100% of most often used messages, Mediawiki and MediaWiki core messages are translated. –BruTe talk 20:02, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

2019 November[edit]

MediaWiki core is at 91%, so while I would like that to get to 100%, that's enough for me. However, I do think that the 15 messages of the Extension "Proofread Page" do need to be finished. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:54, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
