main page Request for a new language edition: Wikivoyage Vietnamese
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:

No doubts about the eligibility of the language; when the activity criteria are fulfilled, it can be approved. --MF-W 15:37, 28 March 2013 (UTC) // Approved. --MF-W 15:33, 25 July 2013 (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 vi (SILEthnologue) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Vietnamese Language name in English
Language name Tiếng Việt 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 Wikivoyage "Wikivoyage" in your language
Project namespace Wikivoyage usually the same as the project name
Project talk namespace Thảo luận_Wikivoyage "Wikivoyage talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Enable uploads NO, as consensus at here Files should be uploaded to Commons, but if you want, you can enable local file uploading.
Notes: (1) files on Commons can be used on all wikis; (2) this setting can be changed afterwards; (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:Wikivoyage-logo-en.svg 135x135 PNG derivative from a decent SVG image (instructions)
Default project timezone Asia/Hanoi "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)

Discussions[edit]

Vietnamese language is national language of Vietnam with a population of near 90 millions and about 3 millions abroad (most of them in USA). Its sister project, Vietnamese Wikipedia, has over 750k articles with over 300k users. I think this proposal is eligible.--Voyageditor (talk) 14:10, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
