Welcome to WikiProject Intertranswiki Dutch, a collaborative effort to improve English Wikipedia by importing and translating content from Dutch Wikipedia. The aim of the project is to draw up a full directory of missing content from Dutch 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. You can also use this tool or Petscan to find articles in a specified category in Dutch Wikipedia that have interwiki links to other Wikipedias but not to English Wikipedia. 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 Dutch Wikipedia as part of WikiProject Intertranswiki are categorised as Category:Articles needing translation from Dutch Wikipedia and organized by main topic.

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

{{Expand Dutch|topic=|date=}}

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

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

If the article on Dutch 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, Wim van Gelder would be tagged as follows:

  • {{Expand Dutch|Wim van Gelder (CDA)|topic=gov|date=August 2009}}

Missing article directory[edit]

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