This page intends to organize efforts to make a Portuguese version of Wikitravel. Until the version is created, all discussions should be in English, so others Wikitravellers may join the discussion.

Contents

Rationale

Portuguese (português) is a Romanic language spoken in 23 countries, including Portugal, Brazil, Angola, Mozambique and East Timor. With more than 200 million native speakers, Portuguese is the fifth or sixth most popular mother-tongue language in the world (depending on how you count), and the second-largest Romance language, outnumbered only by Spanish.

Objectives

  • Make a local travel guide for Portuguese, Brazilians and any other Portuguese speakers. We are not against international travels, but we believe that that information would fit better in the international (English) Wikitravel.

Name

Why not translate also the name.

  • because that would require a dedicated server
  • to reinforce and join forces in the brand wikitravel
  • because wikiviagem could be interpreted as 'wee, what a travel' , wikiviajante seems 'wow, what a traveller' and also both names are ugly.


Goal

See the Language version policy for see what it takes to start our own wikitravel

Translate those pages

Interface file translation

The interface file for Portuguese needs to be matched to Wikitravel. References to Wikipedia should be changed to {{SITENAME}} and reference to the GFDL should be changed to the CC by-sa 1.0.

Expedition members can edit the file here: Wikitravel:LanguagePt.php. It may be worthwhile to compare here: Wikitravel:Language.php for the English version.
