Belarusian (Беларуская) Taraškievicabe-tarask



Other Wikipedias[edit]

  • Do you have special contacts with other Wikipedias (maybe in related languages)?
  • Do you translate a lot from other Wikipedias? Which ones?
    • Can't say “a lot”, but some articles are translated to improve their quality. Normally in this cases articles are taken from Russian, or Polish and Ukrainian Wikipedias (no language barrier, and small language barrier correspondingly), but also from English Wikipedia or combination of all of them. —zedlik 22:20, 21 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Organization and support[edit]

Your Wikipedia and the linguistic community[edit]


  • Does your edition concentrate on certain topics, like your region and language, or Latin Wikipedia on Roman history and Christianity?
  • Did your edition enjoy text donations, for example from older encyclopedias?


  • Is there a generally accepted norm about your language (spelling, dictionary, pronunciation)?
    • Yes, a grammar exists and a number of dictionaries, too. Some different ways exist about how to reproduce some foreign proper names (since we use Cyrillic), but in the case there is no variant in a dictionary, the most popular one is used then. —zedlik 22:20, 21 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • How do you deal with different spellings, dialects etc. (like B.E. lift and A.E. elevator)?
    • There are 2 most general norms (spellings) of Belarusian. There could be some argues about spelling or dictionary between these 2 norms, but I can’t remember that we had any big spelling or dictionary disagreement since the moment after both norms of Belarusian have a separate Wikipedia. —zedlik 22:20, 21 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]
