From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

In updating the Wiktionary and Wikipedia logos, it became clear that there's no convenient list of all the logo parts (or even any list of the localized project names/slogans at all in most cases). This makes updating logos very difficult, because even if the old logo was translated, we won't be able to make a new version because we can't copy-paste the text from the logo itself... and so we created this page. :-)

  • completely fill-out the table
    • [check] — there's a localization there, but it needs to be reviewed by a speaker for accuracy
    • [help] — there's a localized logo, but we can't figure out what's on it
    • [missing] — all or part of the localization is missing
  • (re)name all logos in a similar format (e.g. $PROJECT-logo-$LANG.$EXT or $PROJECT-logo-v2-$LANG.$EXT for the new Wikipedia logo)
    • can be easily found and reused
    • can be used in templates
  • update/create logos
    • first, add some help docs (step-by-step, like the Wikipedia 2.0 logo has) either here or on some other pages about creating the different projects logos
    • both svg and png
    • 2012 logo creation drive (Wiktionary first, then Wikipedia):
      saper to create a script?
      1. look at the last columns to see which are with a red link or only old logo (v1 Wikipedia, or non-scrabble/tile logo); either of PNG or SVG is enough;
      2. if there are both name and motto (no red warning/"missing" nor "check" note), proceed;
      3. if it's not a Wiktionary with "custom config" note, proceed;
      4. create the SVG accordingly and overwrite it on Commons if already existing (wrongly) under that name.
