Welcome to the Gaeilge task force of WikiProject Ireland and WikiProject Northern Ireland.

Scope[edit]

The Gaeilge task force covers:

  • Providing Irish-language versions for Irish place names
  • Providing English-language translations for Irish-language versions of Irish place names
  • Providing similar support for Irish people, events, institutions, etc. where appropriate according to the manual of style

Participants[edit]

To join the Gaeilge task force, just add your name to the list below, and maybe drop a line onto the talk page introducing yourself. Ideas for things to get stuck into are in the sections below.

To do[edit]

To-do items for members of Gaeilge task force[edit]

  • Find editors who have shown interest in this subject and ask them to take a look here.
  • Develop manual of style for translation of Irish-language phrases
  • Integrate best practice into the WP:IMOS
  • Forge links with Scottish/Manx (and Welsh/Cornish/Breton?) cousins
  • Update articles in Category:Untranslated Irish place names with no_translate=yes (as per updated {{Irish place name}} and {{Gaeltacht place name}}) to clear up blockages

To-do items for anyone[edit]

  • Add {{gaeilge}} where appropriate
  • Convert old format for Irish place names to the newer {{irish place name}} and related templates

Guidelines[edit]

Tagging and assessment[edit]

Any articles that are within the scope of this project should be tagged with the project banners of WikiProject Ireland and/or WikiProject Northern Ireland. You may also find {{WikiProjectBanners}} useful. To each of these banners, you should add gaeilge-task-force = yes as this will automatically put the page in the appropriate categories, such as Category:Gaeilge task force articles.
