The Galician Wikitravel Expedition is an expedition to create a Example-language version of Wikitravel.

For more information on multilingual Wikitravel policy, please see Language version policy.

Contents

Goals[edit]

This Expedition has the following goals:

  • To collect a good base of Galician-speaking users willing to take this project further.
  • To choose a go-between who can keep users on the English-language site up-to-date on developments on Galician Wikitravel, and vice-versa
  • To launch the new Galician-language Wikitravel.
  • To translate the pages and create the infrastructure necessary to make Galician Wikitravel useful and friendly for new Galician-speaking contributors.
  • To make Galician Wikitravel an integrated part of the Wikitravel family.

Gathering a team of users[edit]

To get this project started, we need at least 3 Galician-speaking users willing to help start the Galician 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.

If you're interested, please create a user account here on Wikitravel Shared, and sign the list below. To sign, type four tildes (~~~~)

More than 3 users are welcome to sign up, but we need at least 3 to get started.

Go-between[edit]

If there are no objections, Xosé, the person who started this Expedition, has volunteered to act as go-between for this new language.

Language interface file[edit]

MediaWiki, the software that runs Wikitravel, uses a language interface file to make the links and names and prompts and stuff readable in other languages. We need to customize a new version to work for Galician Wikitravel.

We can collaboratively do this at LanguageGL.php. It's started off with the Wikipedia language file, and we can use the English en:Wikitravel:Language.php file as a reference for things that need to be changed. It's mostly just changing the name of the site (Wikipedia -> Wikitravel), the name of the license, and the names of some important pages.

Issues[edit]

  • Nov 28 2011: Four volunteers have stepped forward. We can start.
  • Translation of the basic pages may start. Translated pages can be placed as a subpage of this one, here.
