The Chinese Wikitravel Expedition is an expedition to create a Chinese language version of Wikitravel. For more information on multilingual Wikitravel policy, please see Wikitravel:Language version policy.

We just need to start little by little, I guess. To add new sections or subsections, use double "==" or "===". It's easy.


Chinese is the official language of China, Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan, and is one of the four official languages of Singapore. About one-fifth of the people in the world speak some forms of Chinese as their native language, which means that a Chinese version of Wikitravel would serve a wide audience. In addition, many Chinese-speaking parts of Asia are major travel destinations; having locals update information in their native tongue (which could then be translated to other languages) would make for better information in all the Wikitravel guides.


This Expedition has the following goals:

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


The Language version policy lists the steps necessary to get a Chinese-language Wikitravel in place.

Gathering a team of users

To get this project started, we need at least 5 Chinese-speaking users willing to help start the Chinese 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, like "~~~~".
