The German Wikitravel Expedition is an expedition to create a German language version of Wikitravel.
For more information on multilingual Wikitravel policy, please see Wikitravel:Language version policy.
Germans, Austrians, some Swiss, and others in Europe speak German. About 130 million people world-wide have German as their mother tongue, which means that a German version of Wikitravel would serve a wide audience.
In addition, contributions in German would help the other Wikitravel language versions. Many German-speaking parts of Europe are major travel destinations; having locals update information in their native tongue (which could then be translated to other languages) would make for better information in all the Wikitravel guides. German-speakers are also frequent travelers and would have a lot to contribute on other destinations and topics.
This Expedition has the following goals:
The Language version policy lists the steps necessary to get a German-language Wikitravel in place.
Gathering a team of users
To get this project started, we need at least 5 German-speaking users willing to help start the German Wikitravel. This means helping to translate the interface files, create content on the new Wikitravel, and to create the necessary infrastructure to make Wikitravel welcoming and useful for the next wave of contributors.

More than 5 users are welcome to sign up, but we need at least 5 to get started.
