This page describes the criteria for determining the article status of phrasebooks.

Status Name Description
0 Vfd Not an article, with a page name that doesn't even identify a language or country. While it may contain information, that information does not meet Wikitravel's goals.
1 Stub A phrasebook with little or no information in it, or not formatted even close to the manual of style. A phrasebook with no template would have this status.
2 Outline Has at least an introductory paragraph (this can be as short as a description of where the language is spoken) and a phrasebook template laid out for the article. Some of the sections of the template may have been translated, but not most of them.
3 Usable Has at least a Pronunciation Guide and the Basics section fully translated. The Lodging section is at least started and the names of foods are given under Eating.
4 Guide The phrasebook is at least mostly complete. The article will enable a traveller to communicate all of their basic needs, even if no one speaks English.
5 Star The phrasebook template is complete and correct. It has a map identifying places where this language is officially recognized and/or commonly spoken. The format either matches the manual of style exactly or is the exception that proves the rule.

Insert the Wiki Markup listed below in order to display a guide's maturity rating:
