Welcome to the 2010 Translation Hub


This is the page where we will link you to all of the fundraising translation requests. The 2010 Fundraiser is intended to be a collaborative and global effort. Like past fundraisers, we will rely heavily on our team of translators to translate the banners, forms, information pages, and more into different languages. With the help of volunteer translators from all across the world our hope is to communicate these core messages to as many people as possible so that every single person on the planet has free access to the sum of all human knowledge.

We are looking for translators who are willing to contribute to this project by helping translate and localize messages into their own language. We recognize that certain messages may not necessarily translate well, or appeal to every audience, so when translating you do not have to do an exact literal translation if you feel that you can offer a wording that achieves a similar effect, linguistically or culturally. If there's no wording that will work, just indicate that inside the translation request and leave a message on the talk page.

Help us maximize the potential of this year's fundraiser by translating core messages, banners, and meta pages. We want everyone in the community to get involved to make sure this fundraiser represents all of us in the Wikimedia community. Thank you in advance for your efforts in translating and adapting these messages and contributing to the sustainability of a remarkable pool of human knowledge - all for the purpose of sharing.

General Tips

  • To get started go to the FAQ
  • Please annotate your translations with *** if you feel your contribution needs work or if you feel there is another that should not be used.
  • Note: Some of these messages are the same as (or are based on) those from previous years. You may be able to reuse some of the old translations: 2009, 2008, 2007.
  • These localised fundraiser pages on Wikimedia Foundation will not appear to users living in areas where a fundraising agreement exists between WMF and a Wikimedia chapter. For information on additional work needed to complete the localisation of the fundraiser for these users please read the translation FAQ.
