This project needs someone to step forward to be the go-between for Russian.

Latest revision as of 14:39, 2 August 2007

This page intends to organize efforts to make a Russian version of Wikitravel. The Russian version has not yet launched officially, but has been unlocked and serious work is being done on its namespace articles and the underlying structure of the guide. Discussion in English should continue here on the talk page, but is now occurring as well in Russian at the pub.

Rationale[edit]

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

Objectives[edit]

  • Make a travel guide for Russians, citizens of ex-USSR republics and any other Russian speakers.

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

Name[edit]

Why not translate also the name.

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

Goal[edit]

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

Gather a minimum team[edit]

Members who would gladly like to contribute:

Go-between[edit]

This project needs someone to step forward to be the go-between for Russian. The go-between is responsible for keeping the Russian version of Wikitravel connected to the rest of the projects, by making a monthly report, translated bug reports and feature requests and news, and keeping up-to-date on what's happening with the rest of the site.

Interface file translation[edit]

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: en:Wikitravel:LanguageRu.php. It may be worthwhile to compare here: en:Wikitravel:Language.php for the English version.

Namespaces[edit]

I've translated the namespaces as following:

  • Media: средства
  • Special: Статистика
  • Talk: Обсуждение
  • User: Участник
  • User talk: Обсуждение участника
  • Image: Изображение
  • Image talk: Обсуждение изображения
  • MediaWiki: Медиа-Вики
  • MediaWiki talk: Обсуждение_Медиа-Вики
  • Template: Шаблон
  • Template talk: Обсуждение шаблона
  • Help: Справка
  • Help talk: Обсуждение справки
  • Category: Категории
  • Category talk: Обсуждение категории

If anyone feels these namespaces are incorrect, then feel free to change them. They are currently defined in en:Wikitravel:LanguageRu.php --EmbrunOntario 20:40, 17 August 2006 (EDT)

What's Media used for? Средства has quite narrow meaning.
Do we need hyphen in Медиа-Вики? It would be easier to type if we have the same МедиаВики style as in English (will pages with this prefix ever appear at :ru?). --DenisYurkin 10:35, 2 August 2007 (EDT)
