Hindi Wikisource[edit]

main page Request for a new language edition: Wikisource Hindi
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:

Additional settings Anything else that should be set
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

Hindi, the official language of India is one of the largest spoken languages in the world. Hindi literature contains literature in all Hindi languages, including its dialects like: Brij Bhasha, Bundeli, Awadhi, Kannauji, Marwari, Maithili, Magahi, Bhojpuri and Bihari languages in Devnagari (Hindi) script. I strongly feel it deserves its own wikisource.--Rachana dayal 07:41, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

समर्थन में तर्क[edit]

  • समर्थन. बहुभाषीय विकीस्रोत में पहले से ही कुछ सौ पृष्ठ हिंदी पृष्ठ हैं. विकीस्रोत के एक योगदानकर्ता और प्रशाससक होने के नाते, मैं प्रवसन और परियोजना शुरू करने का समर्थन करती हूं. मैं हिंदी पढ़ और लिख सकती हूं.Yann 08:25, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

  • पूर्ण समर्थन-- हिन्दी बोलने और समझने वालों की संख्या बहुत विशाल है। हिन्दी में साहित्य का विशाल भण्डार भी है। इसलिये हिन्दी का अपना विकिसोर्स डोमेन प्रदान किये जाने की मांग न्यायसंगत है। अनुनाद सिंह 03:55, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

  • समर्थन. विकीस्रोत पर हिंदी का संग्रह काफी अहम. इसमें नियमित रूप से योगदान होता रहता है. मैं निश्चिंत हूं कि हिंदी विकीस्त्रोत काफी तेजी से बढ़ेगा.John Vandenberg 10:45, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
    पुराने विकीस्रोत के अनुसार oldwikisource:WS:LANG, Hindi is the second largest collection which does not have its own project yet. It has 1525 pages. This is a very important project to launch! John Vandenberg 10:50, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
  • पूर्ण समर्थन--Shree There is a large Hindi contribution, both under Categories:Hindi as well as Categories:हिन्दी . All these should eb moved under the subdomain. I would also request that the input method for hindi, setup for hindi wikipedia should be setup for all other hindi subdomains such as wikisource. the method should also be made available for sanskrit, marathi, nepali etc. which also use the devanagari script. I hope for quick action on this. Thanks.
    If there is any help needed in translation of interface, please let me know. Shree 04:12, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Other discussion[edit]

Currently the localisation of the Hindi interface is 96.56% for the core messages and 84.65% for the extensions used in the WMF. There is always a need for help with localisation and proof reading. In a period of 10 days some 250 messages may need work. The price we pay for living on a bleeding edge is a need for continous work on our localisations ... Thanks, GerardM 10:47, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

The Hindi translations are at 100% of the core message, however there are still untranslated messages for the Proofread Page extension which is very important for Wikisource. John Vandenberg 07:08, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
There are still 159 untranslated messages in MediaWiki. Also, the following untranslated messages need to be translated because these extensions are used for Wikisource: Cite, Collection, Confirm Edit, Gadgets, Ogg Handler, Proofread Page, Vector, Licenses, Wikimedia messages. John Vandenberg 06:04, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

I will be happy to help translate the messages. Kindly let me know how to do so - I am not able to edit and save online. user:Shree ~~ 2011-06-06T09:15:22
