- The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics, recent changes). It is generally considered active if the analysis lists at least three active, not-grayed-out editors listed in the sections for the previous few months.
- The community needs to complete required MediaWiki interface translations in that language (about localization, translatewiki, check completion).
- The community needs to discuss and complete the settings table below:
|What||Value||Example / Explanation|
|Language code||myv (SIL, Glottolog)||A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...|
|Language name||Erzya||Language name in English|
|Language name||Эрзя||Language name in your language. This will appear in the language list on Special:Preferences, in the interwiki sidebar on other wikis, ...|
|Language Wikidata item||Q29952 - item has currently the following values:
||Item about the language at Wikidata. It would normally include the Wikimedia language code, name of the language, etc. Please complete at Wikidata if needed.|
|Directionality||LTR||Is the language written from left to right (LTR) or from right to left (RTL)?|

|Project name||"Wiktionary" in your language|
|Project namespace||usually the same as the project name|
|Project talk namespace||"Wiktionary talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)|
|Enable uploads||no||Default is "no". Preferably, files should be uploaded to Commons.|
If you want, you can enable local file uploading, either by any user ("yes") or by administrators only ("admin").
Notes: (1) This setting can be changed afterwards. The setting can only be "yes" or "admin" at approval if the test creates an Exemption Doctrine Policy (EDP) first. (2) Files on Commons can be used on all Wikis. (3) Uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info). (4) Localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons.
|Project logo||File:...||This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).|
|Default project timezone||Continent/City||"Continent/City", e.g. "Europe/Brussels" or "America/Mexico City" (see list of valid timezones)|
|Additional namespaces||For example, a Wikisource would need "Page", "Page talk", "Index", "Index talk", "Author", "Author talk".|
|Additional settings||Anything else that should be set|
- Number of speakers: about 500 thousand
- Locations spoken: Russia: Bashkortostan, Buguruslan, Chuvashia, Mordovia, Penza, Samara, Tatarstan, Temnikov, Ulyanovsk; Armenia; Azerbaijan; Estonia; Kazakhstan; Kyrgyzstan; Ukraine; Turkmenistan; Uzbekistan.
- This is a national language in Mordovia.
- The publication of dictionaries, as is the case with many other books of all genres are limited about 1000 per printing. This media would make it possible to provide a large readership with several aspects of the written language, i.e. orthographical variation, neologisms, older less-used words, synonymy, etymology, etc.
Arguments in favourEdit
- Support In 2002 the renowned Erzya writer Kuz'ma Abramov published the first Erzya-language dictionary "Валонь ёвтнема валкс" with well over six thousand entries. The manuscript materials from this dictionary have been granted as an open-axis basis for this type of project. Thanks. Rueter 07:03, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
- SupportHi! like a native speaker will give voice to create. It will be a qualitative development of the Erzya language in the Internet - it is necessary for pupils, students, and those who want to teach Erzya language. I will help in the development of this project. I think that apart from the dictionary Abramov's, you can use and other open sources, for example the book "Syrnen chovolyat Eugene Chetvergov.
