This page describes the current multi-lingual policy on WoWRoster.net.

Help: namespace

Within the Help: namespace we are building a set of public domain help pages. The aim is to provide a basic set of help pages that may be imported into new wikis covering the basic editing and usage instructions. These should be translated into as many languages as possible.

This system will be compatible with the automated import/export of Help pages, but may need a bit of working around to export/import non-English pages in the interim.

The main page

The English version of our front page is located at Main_Page. Translated versions are located at Main_Page/code, where code is the language code (e.g. Main_Page/fr. Please see Project:Main page templates for more details about creating or editing this content.

Importantly, the rules about language codes (see below) should be followed here as well.

Other namespaces

Apart from the Main Page, no policy has yet been decided about other namespaces. For the time being, if you would like to create translations for pages in other namespaces then please do so as described for the Help: namespace, however content may be moved or deleted depending on the policy that is eventually adopted.

Discussion is ongoing at Project:Current issues.

Note that the rule that English content should not be placed in sub-pages does not apply to other namespaces. This is one of the issues that needs resolving.

Language codes

Throughout MediaWiki.org you should use the language codes specified by the MediaWiki software when creating language-specific content (see Names.php for the full and up-to-date list).
