Language guides

Many wikis in the Wikimedia world give editors suggestions about the correct usage of each respective language: orthography, register, punctuation, and so on.

It's inconvenient to link them using interlanguage links (a.k.a. Wikidata sitelinks), because such pages are, by definition, different for each language in their content. Often they are also different in their own structure: for example, some wikis may have just one page for this, some wikis may have only a section in another page, and some wikis may have several pages. This page is a flexible central repository for those pages.

All languages and all kinds of wikis and projects are welcome here—both content projects like Wikipedia and Wikivoyage, and community wikis like Outreach,, and Meta itself. If your project doesn't appear in the list below, add it! For convenience, list them alphabetically by their English name, and add the project's native name after a slash.

And if your wiki doesn't have such a page at all, start one, and list it here!
