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


Russian (русский язык) is one of the most spoken languages in the World. For more info, see Wikipedia.


  • Make a local travel guide for Russians, citizens of ex-USSR republics and any other Russian speakers. We are not against international travels, but we believe that that information would fit better in the international (English) Wikitravel.

According to Wikitravel Language edition policies, every language edition of Wikitravel has to represent a global view. --EmbrunOntario 20:35, 17 August 2006 (EDT)


Why not translate also the name.

  • because that would require a dedicated server
  • to reinforce and join forces in the brand wikitravel


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

Gather a minimum team

Interface file translation

The interface file for Russian 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:LanguageRu.php. It may be worthwhile to compare here: Wikitravel:Language.php for the English version.
