Introduction[edit]

Welcome to WikiProject Intertranswiki Russian, a collaborative effort to improve English Wikipedia by importing and translating content from Russian Wikipedia. The aim of the project is to draw up a full directory of missing content from Russian Wikipedia organised by topic and sub topic as well as to tag existing articles which need major translation from the other language equivalent and begin to work towards creating the articles or improving an existing article. Once the directory is drawn up, the project is intended to work towards starting the missing articles and where possible combine inter-wiki translation with reliable sources elsewhere. Please note that not all content is suitable for transferring and please exercise caution if translating unreferenced material or the subject is controversial. Where possible, translations should be backed by Reliable sources.

Translating and expanding existing articles[edit]

Articles currently tagged as needing translation from Russian Wikipedia as part of WikiProject Intertranswiki are categorised as Category:Articles needing translation from Russian Wikipedia and organized by main topic.

To add a tag to an existing article which you know of that could be expanded from Russian Wikipedia add the following:

{{Expand Russian|topic=|date=}}

The following code is to be applied to categorise an article needing translation in any of the above categories:

  • {{Expand Russian|fa=yes|date=}} for Featured Articles
  • {{Expand Russian|topic=geo|date=}} for Geographical articles
  • {{Expand Russian|topic=sport|date=}} for Sports articles
  • {{Expand Russian|topic=culture|date=}} for Culture articles
  • {{Expand Russian|topic=hist|date=}} for History articles
  • {{Expand Russian|topic=sci|date=}} for Science articles
  • {{Expand Russian|topic=struct|date=}} for Building and structure articles
  • {{Expand Russian|topic=transport|date=}} for Transport articles
  • {{Expand Russian|topic=gov|date=}} for Government and politics articles

If the article on Russian Wikipedia is worded differently from the English version then the exact article name should be entered into the expand template to enable direct translation. For example, Saint Archangels Monastery would be tagged as follows:

  • {{Expand {{SUBPAGENAME}}|Монастырь Святого Архангела|topic=struct|date=August 2009}}

Missing article directory[edit]

There are thousands of articles missing that need starting and to be translated from Russian Wikipedia. Missing articles will be listed and organised by main topic and then sub ordered by category or specific topic.
