Codex:Multilingual

Contents

The Polyglots translation and localization team for WordPress works hard to ensure WordPress is available in many languages. This effort include the translation of WordPress Codex articles in a variety of languages.

To help translate the WordPress Codex, sign up for the Polyglots Blog and get involved. The guidelines for translating the WordPress Codex is no different from the ones mentioned above, however, the documentation team requests that a link be placed on the original document linking to the translated document, and vice versa.

For those who are multilingual, if you find an article in, say, Japanese that matches one in Russian, please add those links as well. By adding the link to the original English article, we can also cross reference all the various language versions without knowing the language of the article. The more we can cross link between languages, the more the WordPress Codex can serve everyone.

Language Cross Reference

Inside WordPress Codex

Wiki templates are used instead of the "Interlanguage Links" feature of MediaWiki, in codex.wordpress.org. (see wp-docs ML) e.g.

{{Languages|
{{en|English Article Name}}
...
{{nl|Dutch Article Name}}
...
{{bn|Bengali Article Name}}
...
{{km|ភាសាខ្មែរ-Khmer (Cambodia) Article Name}}
...
{{tmz|ⵜⴰⵎⴰⵣⵉⵔⵜ Article Name}}
...
{{zh-cn|中文文章标题}}
}}

...

Order: English first and then all other languages in alphabetical order by Tag name.

Outside WordPress Codex

Outside codex.wordpress.org, you can use the "Interlanguage Links" feature of MediaWiki, like Wikipedia's sidebar. e.g.

[[en:English Article Name]]
