Presently, all of the content on this wiki is in [[Wikipedia:English language|english]] — American english, to be specific.  We have people who view this Wiki from other countries, as far away as Europe and Asia.  And likely further.
 
  
Therefore, this is a formal effort to recruit mutlilingual contributors and organize these contributors to translate our documents in other languages. Once there is enough translations of a particular translation, the Battlestar Wiki, as a group, will sit down and see if there is cause enough for a full language site with the "battlestarwiki.org" domain name.

Every language starts out with at least two sysops approved by the English administrators. Afterwards the wiki must hold their own [[BW:RFA|RFA]] hearings.

If you want to help out with any or all of these language wikis, please goto those sites. Keep in mind that you will have to refer to this Wiki for policy questions.

== How to Begin  ==
  
If you want to help out with any or all of these language wikis, please goto those sites. Keep in mind that you will have to refer to this Wiki for policy questions.
+
To begin, create a subpage of the article you wish to translate. For instance, let's say you were going to tackle the article on [[The Fleet (RDM)|The Fleet]] and translate it into Spanish. Here's how you would begin:
  
__FORCETOC__
+
*In the search box, type in:
 +
*:The Fleet/'''es''':La Flota
 +
*Press "Go". Select "create this article" option.
 +
*Begin translating the article. Once done, list the article on this page under Articles Translated.
  
== How to Begin ==
+
Once there are a growing number of articles, Joe or Shane will then set up an individual BSG Wiki for that language. (i.e. [[:de:Main_Page|de.battlestarwiki.org]] for German BSG Wiki, et al.). '''Never, ever, place interwiki links on these subpages.'''

Obviously our eventual goal is to have just about everything translated. Rather than listing every page here, this can be used to request critical pages for translators to focus on.

These three should be the first ones done.

There are others to be translated as well that need to be translated before you can even get your own-wiki. Please take a look at the list [[Battlestar Wiki:Translation Project/Required Translations for Own Wiki|here]]. If you can prove that you can deicated a full force of at least 5-10 people to translating all the required information, we will create a language wiki without question and import all your work to the language wiki. Articles still needing translations from the current languages we support are located [[Special:Withoutinterwiki|here]].  
  
These three should be the first ones done.

It is suggested you start from the oldest episodes and articles first before you more to articles that always under going edits.

''Feel free to adjust the title of this section.'' This section is intended to be a handy place to keep track of how far the series has progressed in the particular languages, in order to avoid translating spoiler content over from the English side. Only languages that are translating in conjunction with the ''English Wiki'' are listed here.

Revision as of 14:51, 27 May 2008

BSG WIKI Globe.png This page is one of Battlestar Wiki's many projects.
This page serves to coordinate discussion on a particular aspect of this Wiki. The formal recommendations of a project may be treated as policies.
Shortcut:
BW:i18n


This project deals with converting articles from the Battlestar Wiki into other languages and how to accomplish that task.

Overview

Presently, all of the content on this wiki is in english — American english, to be specific. We have people who view this Wiki from other countries, as far away as Europe and Asia. And likely further.

Therefore, this is a formal effort to recruit mutlilingual contributors and organize these contributors to translate our documents in other languages. Once there is enough translations of a particular translation, the Battlestar Wiki, as a group, will sit down and see if there is cause enough for a full language site with the "battlestarwiki.org" domain name.

Currently we have these official sub-language projects with there status.

BSG-WIKI Exclaimation.png This article or section has been marked for cleanup and revision.
Should there be a need to discuss the merits of the claim, discuss them on the talk page.
Wiki Current Status Main Sysops
Deutsch / German Wiki Active Astfgl (en)
CC-Mel (en)
Español / Spanish Wiki Active Baltar Gaiolas (en)
Français / French Wiki Inactive Moo (en)
Bahasa Melayu / Malay Wiki Active Starkiller (en)
Türkçe / Turkish Wiki Inactive Hudd (en)
Redlinetheturk (en)
中文 / Chinese Wiki Active SuperMMX (en)

Every language starts out with at least two sysops approved by the English administrators. Afterwards the wiki must hold their own RFA hearings.

If you want to help out with any or all of these language wikis, please goto those sites. Keep in mind that you will have to refer to this Wiki for policy questions.


How to Begin

To begin, create a subpage of the article you wish to translate. For instance, let's say you were going to tackle the article on The Fleet and translate it into Spanish. Here's how you would begin:

  • In the search box, type in:
    The Fleet/es:La Flota
  • Press "Go". Select "create this article" option.
  • Begin translating the article. Once done, list the article on this page under Articles Translated.

Once there are a growing number of articles, Joe or Shane will then set up an individual BSG Wiki for that language. (i.e. de.battlestarwiki.org for German BSG Wiki, et al.). Never, ever, place interwiki links on these subpages.

Articles Needing Translation

Obviously our eventual goal is to have just about everything translated. Rather than listing every page here, this can be used to request critical pages for translators to focus on.

These three should be the first ones done.

There are others to be translated as well that need to be translated before you can even get your own-wiki. Please take a look at the list here. If you can prove that you can deicated a full force of at least 5-10 people to translating all the required information, we will create a language wiki without question and import all your work to the language wiki. Articles still needing translations from the current languages we support are located here.

It is suggested you start from the oldest episodes and articles first before you more to articles that always under going edits.

There are standards and conventions for translating. Please read this before doing anything.

Who is admin of these wikis during setup?

Joe and Shane will be the two overall admins (B-crats, Sysop, checkuser), but you will have to decide as a group who will represent your language.

Language Specific Spoiler Checkpoints

Feel free to adjust the title of this section. This section is intended to be a handy place to keep track of how far the series has progressed in the particular languages, in order to avoid translating spoiler content over from the English side. Only languages that are translating in conjunction with the English Wiki are listed here.
