Czech Wikitravel Expedition

The Czecg Wikitravel Expedition is an expedition to create a Czech language version of Wikitravel.

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


Czech is a language spoken in Czech republic. There are over 10.5 million native speakers worldwide. These travelers would be well-served by a Wikitravel travel guide in their language.


This Expedition has the following goals:

  • To collect a good base of Czech 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 Czech Wikitravel, and vice-versa
  • To translate the interface files for Wikitravel into Czech
  • To launch the new Czech-language Wikitravel.
  • To translate the pages and create the infrastructure necessary to make Czech Wikitravel useful and friendly for new Czech contributors.
  • To make Czech Wikitravel an integrated part of the Wikitravel family.


The Language version policy lists the steps necessary to get a Czech Wikitravel in place.

Gathering a team of users[edit]

To get this project started, we need at least 3 Czech-speaking users willing to help start the Czech 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 on this (English) Wikitravel, and sign the list below. To sign, edit this page and just type ~ 4 times below, like "~~~~".

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

If there are no objections, Nikola Ciprich, the person who started this Expedition, has volunteered to act as liaison 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 Czech Wikitravel.

We can collaboratively do this at en:Wikitravel:LanguageCs.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.
