  • All meta pages;
  • ...

How to edit

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.

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

Wikibase items

What

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

How to edit

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.
