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

A committee member provided the following comment:

Project is eligible. Please review the requirements for final project approval. This test project has a long way to go before meeting those requirements. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 17:11, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
  • 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:

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.

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

Proposal[edit]

Urdu, the official language of Pakistan is one of the largest spoken languages in the world. I strongly feel it deserves its own wikisource ----Bukhari Talk 12:51, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

We have been working for some time have and have uploaded many texts on the Multilingual Wikisource. I think its time that we have a separate domain for Urdu Wikisource. Besides this, a few writers have started donating their books and more will follow. --Bukhari (Talk!) 10:49, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

    Are InternetArchive books free content compatible with Wikimedia? --Zerabat (discusión) 21:26, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
    @Zerabat: Bueno, la mayoría de los textos del Wikisource en bengalí, por ejemplo, se obtenía de la Biblioteca Digital de India, cuya colección (reflejada en el Archivo del Internet por el enlace dato) contiene libros en el dominio publico en India. Ya que las leyes sobre los derechos del autor en el subcontinente indio son similares entre sus paises (la vida del author más 50 o 60 años), y ya que es seguro suponer que la gran mayoría de los libros del BDI no fueron publicados en los EE.UU, me parecía que este Wikisource nuevo puede adoptar una política que permite subir esos textos.
