→Before launch: step 0!
There are tasks you can and should do before the new language version is launched.
# You can create a new language expedition page using the [[Language Version Expedition template]]. Just copy-and-paste the code from the template onto the new page.
# Acting as the go-between for a language version is ''mostly a chore''. If you are starting an expedition, ''please'' feel free to put your name in as go-between; it is not immodest or rude. ''Don't bother'' with voting or an election unless more than one person wants the job.
