Translating the wiki pages

The wiki page translations are managed using the MediaWiki Translate extension. This allows paragraph-per-paragraph translation of pages, keeping track of changes and indicating to readers when the translation is out of date or new content has been added.

There are two steps for translating a page. First, the page needs to be prepared for translation, and then translated. Please read the following two pages for information on how to proceed with both:

More in-depth information is available in Further reading and tutorials of the Translation extension.

Note that most of the developer pages are intentionally left out of the scope of translation. These include for example feature plans, which are volatine and do not provide any benefit to be translated.
