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

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

{{Expand Malay|topic=|date=}}

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

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

If the article on Malay 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}}|Манастир Светих Архангела (Призрен)|topic=struct|date=August 2009}}

Missing article directory[edit]

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