This article serves as a comprehensive guideline for Cherimoya Wiki internationalization and localization.

See also: International Communities

Guidelines[edit]

Note: The following guidelines apply to articles included on the English ArchWiki. See International Wikis (2010 edition) for the latest discussion regarding the new interwiki implementation.

Article titles[edit]

Non-English article titles should be of the form Title in English (Language) where "Language" is the localized spelling of said language. For example: Beginners' Guide (Français). English titles should not include a language tag. See #Languages for a list of languages and expected localized spellings.

Rationale:

  • English titles facilitate administration; all admins understand English, but may not be multilingual. When browsing Special:RecentChanges and other special pages, admins need to know what is being edited without resorting to external translation programs.
  • Standardized article titles simplify inter-language linking and allow for the creation of internationalization templates such as Template:i18n.

Localized redirects[edit]

Localized titles can and should be created, but must redirect to the English-named article as described above. Redirect titles need not include language tags. For example: Manuel du débutant redirets to Beginners' Guide (Français).

Rationale:

  • Localized titles improve navigability for international readers. Both the internal search feature and external search engines can utilize such redirects.
  • Useful redirects facilitate internal linking.

Inter-language links[edit]

Template:i18n should be included in every article to display a list of available translations by including the following wiki text at the beginning of the article:

{{i18n|Title in English}}

See Template:i18n for detailed usage instructions. This new template will replace the previous system consisting of Template:i18n links start, Template:i18n entry, and Template:i18n links end.

Rationale:

  • Maintaining separate inter-language links for each translation is unrealistic and error-prone. Template:i18n makes use of standardized article titles described above to generate a complete and consistent list across translations.
  • Including inter-language links at the beginning of an article allows international readers to promptly determine whether content is available in their language, and similarly allows translators to ascertain whether an article requires translation.

Languages[edit]

The following table lists all languages encountered on the wiki along with related links.
