Requests for new languages/Wiktionary Mbya Guarani

main page Request for a new language edition: Wiktionary Mbya Guarani
submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been rejected.
While this request has technically been rejected, in reality this is a request that has been sitting open or on hold for a long time with little evidence of a community coming together to build a project. If a community comes together in the future and makes a new request, LangCom would consider that new request without prejudice.

A committee member provided the following comment:

No meaningful content was ever created on Incubator. If you want to try again in the future, start creating content on Incubator, and then come back here. For LangCom: StevenJ81 (talk) 15:15, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
  • 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 gun (SILGlottolog) A valid ISO 639-1 or 639-3 language code, like "fr", "de", "nso", ...
Language name Mbya Guarani Language name in English
Language name mbya ayvu 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 Q3915584 - item has currently the following values:
  • en label = Mbyá Guaraní
  • native label (P1705) =
  • instance/subclass (P31/P279) = language, modern language / Tupi–Guarani languages
  • Wikimedia language code (P424) =
  • writing system (P282) =
  • number of speakers (P1098) =

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 no indication Is the language written from left to right (LTR) or from right to left (RTL)?
Links Links to previous requests, or references to external websites or documents.
Project name Wiktionary "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 yes 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.
Optional settings
Project logo File:... This needs to be an SVG image (instructions for logo creation).
Default project timezone America/Asuncion "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
submit phabricator task (includes everything automatically, except additional namespaces/settings)

Soy Karai Tataendy, maestro de la comunidad Esperanza del Departamento de Caaguazú- Paraguay. En nuestra comunidad hablamos la lengua Mbya Guarani(Ayvu). Somos uno de las seis familias guaraníes del Paraguay. Representamos una minoría que aun hablamos nuestra propia lengua (más de 14 mil personas en 90 comunidades), por tanto necesitamos revitalizar nuestra lengua y que los niños la sigan hablando.

El Guarani Paraguayo "gn", ya registrado como proyecto en Wikimedia, se distingue como la lengua oficial del Paraguay y del Mercosur, distinta a la nuestra Mbya Guarani.

Se ha generado ya un espacio inicial de prueba, pero ayudaría contar con el registro oficial de wikimedia para poder hacer uso de toda su infraestructura e iniciar el trabajo colaborativo con otros compañeros mbya y demàs colaboradores.


  • Comment Comment. @Karai Tataendy and Sebcosal: La incubadora de este wikcionario en mbyá guaraní no tiene contenido aparte de la página principal, que por cierto está casi vacía. Y en consecuencia, no tiene una comunidad ni editores activos. Además, aún no se comenzó con la traducción de la interfaz de mediawiki al idioma. Todo esto desde el 2013. Hay mucho por hacer en la incubadora antes de siquiera pensar en obtener el proyecto de forma oficial. --Zerabat (discusión) 02:41, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
