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

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

{{Expand Vietnamese|topic=|date=}}

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

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

If the article on Vietnamese 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, Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union would be tagged as follows:

  • {{Expand Vietnamese|Đoàn Thanh niên Cộng sản Hồ Chí Minh|topic=gov|date=August 2009}}

Missing article directory[edit]

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