Faroese Intertranswiki
Translating content from Faroese Wikipedia

Translation arrow.svg


Welcome to WikiProject Intertranswiki Faroese, a collaborative effort to improve English Wikipedia by importing and translating content from Faroese Wikipedia. The aim of the project is to draw up a full directory of missing content from Faroese 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 Faroese 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 Faroese Wikipedia as part of WikiProject Intertranswiki are categorised as Category:Articles needing translation from Faroese Wikipedia and organized by main topic.

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

{{Expand Faroese|topic=|date=}}

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

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

If the article on Faroese 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, Pietro Magni (footballer) would be tagged as follows:

  • {{Expand Faroese|Pietro Magni (calciatore)|topic=sport|date=August 2009}}
