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

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

{{Expand Korean|topic=|date=}}

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

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

If the article on Korean 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, Korean Confederation of Trade Unions would be tagged as follows:

  • {{Expand Korean|전국민주노동조합총연맹|topic=gov|date=August 2009}}

Missing article directory[edit]

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