Welcome to Lingua Libre, Moonhouse!
Logo of Lingua Libre

Lingua Libre is a project which aims to build a collaborative multilingual audiovisual corpus under free licence in order to expand knowledge about languages and help online language communities to develop.
You can help us!
You can visit this page if you want to learn more about the project.

Before starting

You can create your User page by clicking on it. We recommend that you integrate the babel template onto it. It is very useful to indicate to others the languages you speak, and to facilitate finding other persons speaking your languages. If you are not familiar with wikicode, you can go to this demo User page, read the instructions and copy the prepared babel template, and then paste it onto your user page before adapting it to your information. You can then publish your User page!

Where to start?
  • Follow the steps of the Record Wizard
  • Think of the words you want to record. You may enter them one by one (live list), use an existing category from a Wiktionary or Wikipedia project, or create your own list.
Do you need help?

You can visit this help page where you will find advice for beginning your contributions on Lingua Libre. If you did not find the answer to your question, please ask it in the Chat room.

Good practice
  • Try to avoid background noises during the recording
  • Please listen to the pronunciations before uploading them
  • Consider using an external microphone

More rights?

Hello @Moonhouse thank you very much for your contribution on Lingua Libre! I've noticed you don't have the autopatrolled user right on Wikimedia Commons at the moment, which means you are limited to uploading a maximum of 380 recordings every 72 minutes, and I know from my own experience that this limitation can be very frustrating when contributing to Lingua Libre.
Would you be interested by having the autopatrolled right on Commons? This way you won't have to worry about ratelimits when contributing on Lingua Libre.
All you have to do is to post a request here on Commons, and/or anwser me here, and you should have the rights within a few days.

Ah, didn't know that it was caused by that limit. Yes, I would appreciate if you could add that right for me. Thanks!

Hello @Moonhouse I posted a request on Wikimedia Commons, and you now have the autopatrolled user rights, which means that you no longer need to wait 72 minutes after having recorded 380 words. From now on, you can record more than 380 words in a row if you'd like to 🙂.
