main page Request for a new language edition: Wikisource Tajik
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.

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.

A committee member provided the following comment:

Until a separate Tajik Wikisource is created, source texts can be added to Multilingual Wikisource. They should be in oldwikisource:Category:Тоҷикӣ.
  • 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:
What Value Example / Explanation
Language code tg (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Tajik Language name in English
Language name Тоҷикӣ 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 Q9260 - item has currently the following values:
  • en label = Tajik
  • native label (P1705) = тоҷикӣ / تاجیکی / toçikī, забони тоҷикӣ / زبان تاجیکی / zaboni toçikī, форсии тоҷикӣ, забони форсии тоҷикӣ
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language, modern language / Persian
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) = tg
  • writing system (P282) = Cyrillic script, Persian alphabet, Latin script, Tajik alphabet
  • number of speakers (P1098) = 14,000,000

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.
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.
Project name Викитека/Викиманбаъ "Wikisource" in your language
Project namespace usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace "Wikisource talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads no 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 File:... 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Continent/City "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)


  • Support Please, sorry I speak en-3 . I can't say what I need. When this Wikisource was create. I will work very and very. Can you create this Wikisource. ToJack (talk) 17:20, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
    @ToJack: do you need help for wikisource formatting and structuration? I found the main page here: oldwikisource:Main page/tg but it's quite empty, there is also 20 pages but no scans… Cdlt, VIGNERON * discut. 16:27, 27 May 2017 (UTC)


  • In all likelihood, this project is eligible. But it's LangCom's job to say so, not the proposer's.
  • In any event, ToJack, you need to gather a community and to start creating content at Multilingual Wikisource, starting with page s:mul:Main Page/Тоҷикӣ. StevenJ81 (talk) 17:51, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
