It manages especially the translation of the core of MediaWiki, and many of its extensions.


Most of the core interface of this wiki plus some specific extensions like:

  • RecordWizard (it is the core extension of Lingua Libre, the complete multi-step process allowing mass recording of pronunciation files);
  • QueryViz (the extension to display sparql queries results inside wiki pages)

This is managed using the Translate extension of Mediawiki. Every page requiring a translation has a link to do it at the top, but you can also find, review and translate every texts that need one on this special page. Edits made will be immediately available to visitors.

If a page is not available for translation, you can ask a translation administrator or administrator to mark the page for translation.

The full list of pages marked for translation is available here and the progess statistics for your language are available here.

Wikibase items


  • The languages names inside the RecordWizard are extracted from the labels of local language items, which are imported from Wikidata.

You could edit directly the local item of a language, but the best way to do it is to edit Wikidata. Once logged there, go to the corresponding item (you can find a link to it through our local items, inside the Wikidata ID (P12) property, e.g. Q21#P12 for French). Edits there are imported on Lingua Libre once per week.
