Swept in from the Wikitravel:Travellers' pub:

Wikitravel:Chinese Wikitravel Expedition is the right place to start. Please also translate the Expedition into Chinese. 加油! Jpatokal 04:48, 3 Nov 2005 (EST)


Is there an issue about which Chinese dialect we're going to use, here? Aren't there significant differences in the ideograms for Mandarin and Cantonese, for example? --Evan 16:52, 11 Nov 2005 (EST)

To give a very simplified answer, written Chinese is universal and basically Mandarin. But we'll need to set up the traditional<->simplified character automatic converter engine they've got set up in Wikipedia. Jpatokal 01:27, 23 Nov 2005 (EST)

维基旅游是不是更好?-- 01:11, 23 Nov 2005 (EST)

Is there a language you don't speak? --Evan 00:28, 9 April 2006 (EDT)
Well, my Tamil is still a little flaky, but I was planning on doing something about that later this year...
And the above anon was asking if "维基旅游" (pron. Wéijīlǚyóu, but literally "Wiki-travel") would be a good translation in Chinese, and I think it is. Jpatokal 01:01, 9 April 2006 (EDT)

Hi all, just signed up and hope I can do something for it.-Fujiaxi 07:36, 21 April 2006 (EDT)

  • How about 维基导游? Caiguanhao 08:19, 5 July 2007 (EDT)

Go go go

So, I want to get this site launched. We have 6 users signed up. We just need a) someone to step forward as go-between and b) a sign that the language file isn't completely broken. Is there someone willing to take these steps and get this site launched? --Evan 00:28, 9 April 2006 (EDT)

Evan, you've gotta get this launched before Wikimania in Taipei! Recruiting people there should be trivial. Jpatokal 13:42, 10 July 2007 (EDT)
OK, so, can you be the go-between (provisional), until the site is ready to go? I can set it up really quickly. --Evan 10:31, 17 July 2007 (EDT)
