This version of Wikipedia is written in English (see Main Page#Wikipedia languages). With this being said, this page is a place to list foreign language articles on the English Wikipedia, to see if they can be translated before they are listed on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. If someone speaks the language the article is written in and can state that it is not worth translating, the item should be moved to AfD or tagged with {{prod}}.

Contents

Standard procedures[edit]

If the article is a mere copy of (all or part of) an article in a foreign-language Wikipedia, it can just be tagged with {{db-foreign}} to get added to Wikipedia:Candidates for speedy deletion: we want to discourage people who cut articles from one Wikipedia and paste to another without translating. If you want to ask for a translation of an article from a foreign-language Wikipedia, go to Wikipedia:Translation. Or instead you can leave a message on the contributing user's talk-page using the templates from Wikipedia:Pages needing translation into English/Templates for user talk pages or using {{UE}}.

Sometimes, legitimate articles are replaced by foreign-language content. In this case, the last English-language version should be restored from the history.

If an article has been listed here for two weeks and is still untranslated, it should be nominated for deletion.

When listing a page here, you might want to find the Wikipedia:Embassy or Ambassador member of the Wikipedia that relates to the language the article is in and invite them to move the page to their own Wikipedia. If you don't even know what language the article is in you could use Language recognition chart and if that fails, some language recognition web site, such as Xerox or What Language Is This? to find out. If you have come here from another Wikipedia, please note on this page what you think should be done with the article.

Articles that are not in English are still subject to all other forms of speedy deletion should they meet the criteria, and can be nominated for deletion by prod or afd should an editor feel they warrant deletion for a reason other than the language it is in, an article not being in English is not itself a criterion for deletion until the two week period has passed. Also, foreign-language articles are still subject to blp prod.

When a page listed here has been translated, its entry should be removed (or moved to cleanup if the translation needs another pair of eyes).

Boilerplate text[edit]

Translate page[edit]

For a page that needs translation in its entirety (so it would be appropriate to delete if not fixed):

1. Use the notice {{notenglish|NameOfLanguage}} if you know the language used, or {{notenglish}} if you cannot identify the language of the page in question. The template will show up as:
2. Add a mention on this page.
2.1. If you know what language was used, add:
{{subst:Needtrans| pg= | Language=NameOfLanguage| Comments= }}--~~~~
replacing NameOfLanguage with the English name of the language.
2.2. If you cannot identify the language used, add:
{{subst:Needtrans| pg= | Language=unknown| Comments= }}--~~~~
3. You may also choose to warn the contributing editor with {{uw-english}}, the "use English" warning, or suggest to use a different language Wikipedia with {{contrib-xx1}}, where xx is the language code (see available templates). An alternate template for identifying the article as having been listed here is {{uw-notenglish}}. Usage is:
{{subst:uw-notenglish|articlename|<optional text>}}~~~~
Bilingual versions of this template have been created for Norwegian, Spanish, Polish, and French. See the note on these at {{uw-notenglish}}.

Translate section[edit]

If there is just a section that needs translation:

1. Use the notice {{notenglish|NameOfLanguage|section}}, with the word "section" as a second unnamed parameter, or the shortcut {{Notenglish-section|NameOfLanguage}}, at the beginning of the non-English content. The template will show up as:
2. Add a mention on this page, as above.
3. You may wish to place a note on the talk pages of contributors of non-English material, saying that English Wikipedia is meant for English-language content, inviting them to translate it, and, if appropriate, suggesting the location of the Wikipedia edition for the language in question should they wish to post content in that language.

Cleanup[edit]

If the article has been translated, but needs attention from someone approaching dual fluency in both languages:

1. Use the notice {{cleanup-translation}}, which will show up as:
2. Add a mention to the translation cleanup section.

Pages for consideration[edit]

Shortcut:
If you are not completely sure of what language an article is written in, check the language recognition chart.
If you are sure, consider placing the corresponding template on the creator's talk page.

Edmundo Domínguez Aragonés[edit]

The language of this article is Spanish. Jackmcbarn (talk) 17:26, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

I did some searching on Google.es and Google.mx and it seems the subject was a journalist and wrote some essays and books, but there is no real significant coverage of him anywhere that I can find. §FreeRangeFrogcroak 19:10, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Pasokhga zarinbl[edit]

The language of this article is Arabic. Wgolf (talk) 16:18, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

It isn't Arabic. (Telltale signs: use of the letter گ [for [g], which Standard Arabic lacks, and which resembles ک, [k], but with the overslant] and absence of the Arabic definite prefix ال, which dominates Arabic text.) Google Translator identifies it as Persian, but then doesn't seem to know how to handle much of it, leaving large blocks untransliterated and much of the rest only transliterated. I'm guessing it's a dialect or a closely related language. Maybe Dari? —Largo Plazo (talk) 20:24, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

2012[edit]

Serge Guinchard[edit]

The initial language of this article was French. Although, looking at the edit summary of this edit to the French article, perhaps a retranslation would be quicker? --Stfg (talk) 18:05, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

I wandered into a tar pit and left far too much comments here. I am going to copy and paste them to the talk page of the article. Si Trew (talk) 09:12, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Erg, my eyes are glazing over from the bureaucratic/legalese. This needs pretty major cleanup, not all of it translation-related. I'll try to enlist the help of a friend who actually has some expertise in this field... Accedietalk to me 00:53, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Zbrašov aragonite caves[edit]

I translated the article from Czech with the help of translation tools. I think I translated most of it accurately, but I am not dually-proficient, so the article will need to be reviewed by someone who is proficient in Czech. - M0rphzone (talk) 01:23, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Let me clarify what needs translating. The titles of the majority of his works were translated with the help of google. So they need help, some were translated out of books, so they are accurate. It will probably be apparent which are which, let me know if I can clarify more.speednat (talk) 17:40, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Ikiryō[edit]

The initial language of this article was Japanese. The references are still in Japanese. I've done what I could, but it still needs work. Auric talk 18:57, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

I would like to help, but need a pointer to the instructions on what to do with Japanese references. Every time anything is converted to Roman letters we lose something, so I am not sure whether to leave the original author and title, and place a gloss afterwards, or what. Imaginatorium (talk) 04:54, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
I would recommend adding the translation in brackets after the original--Jac16888 Talk 10:59, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
The respondents are straying off-course. As per policy WP:NOENG, "Citations to non-English sources are allowed", and for every source written in an X-language you are not obliged to append what the X-language title means in English. The request is merely for an improvement on the English, by someone able and willing to consult the Japanese sources for accuracy. I'll post my version soon.Yes check.svg Done --Kiyoweap (talk) 03:31, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
You could use the nihongo template. This article already contains many examples of how to use it. I don't know what people see if they don't have Asian fonts installed, but if they don't the template displays a little question mark link to instructions on how to install them. Margin1522 (talk) 19:47, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

April 2014[edit]

Ukrainian Association of the Blind[edit]

The initial language of this article was Ukrainian or Russian. Not sure if it is actually a verbatim translation of the the Ukrainian article or the the Russian article but both may be useful to clarify the English one. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 13:50, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Xu Garden[edit]

The initial language of this article is uncertain. I attempted to copy edit where I could, but there are some areas that are so rough that I would be guessing at the intent. I assume that this was translated from Chinese, but since there are no sources listed, it's hard to know for sure. CaroleHenson (talk) 04:43, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

It looks like whoever wrote this article originally translated from Baidu Encyclopedia. The Baidu article cites a page from the Guangzhou Library web site, so I'll try to look through it and amend the article. Otherwise I doubt we can use Baidu as a source. Gccwang (talk) 01:16, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Reestablishment of the episcopal hierarchy in the Netherlands[edit]

The initial language of this article was Dutch. It was machine translated and some content is unintelligible. I interpreted some of the translation. It needs a proofreading. BoBoMisiu (talk) 18:33, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

If you're not capable of translating an article properly yourself, do not add a machine translation, it doesn't help anyone. All we have now is a bad article you have added to an already significant backlog. WP:TRANSLATION is the correct procedure, please follow it in future--Jac16888 Talk 18:50, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Mmmm. I did read WP:TRANSLATION previously – before I started anything. So what is the {{Rough translation}} template for? Jac16888, should I have used {{cleanup-translation}}? Is there a procedure for marking or tagging what, in an otherwise reasonable translation, needs attention from a proficient user? –BoBoMisiu (talk) 21:38, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Both are those tags are for when editors do not follow procedure, create a badly translated article, and then leave it for somebody else to fix--Jac16888 Talk 22:27, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Mmmm. It is unfortunate that after years of contributing to Wikipedia I still misunderstand procedures. Again, Is there a procedure for marking or tagging what, in an otherwise reasonable translation, needs attention from a proficient user? Is there an inline span tag to identify a questionable translation? It would help a proofreader who proofreads to see what another, semi proficient, contributor identified as a questionable translation. --BoBoMisiu (talk) 02:07, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
