Which language?[edit source]

I wonder if this page is the right place to give feedback, but this is my feedback/question anyway: What is the language to be used here. In the Finnish pages everything is in English, but can a Finn visting the pages understand that. Or are pages directed to worldwide readers? Heimoli 13:53, 20 December 2007 (MST)

Reply to Which Language[edit source]

This site is the English version only. It is the starting point because few of us on the project are multilingual. We would like to start creating the other language sites as soon as possible.

  1. The first requirement is to get the bugs worked out of this site.
  2. Before creating a non English site we must identify a core group of volunteers that can help keep tabs on the content and moderate various aspects of the site in the site language and coordinate with the wiki administrators. If you are willing to volunteer time and know others that can be recruited please let us know, that will speed us toward other language versions of this wiki.

Content Outdated May 2011[edit source]

Following the questions raised in the forum thread Foreign Titles in User Guidance/ linking to Foreign Language editions and the resulting community discussion held during the Technical meeting of 24 May, the principle is that different language version of the Research Wiki will be created, starting with 10 core languages. Pages in these wiki should be written only in that language. Before a language version of the wiki is created non-English content can be added to the English Wiki, but must be tagged with the {{notenglish}} template that will be amended to take a parameter, that will be used to group together pages written in the same language. --Steve 17:55, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
