Welcome to the Gaeilge task force of WikiProject Ireland and WikiProject Northern Ireland.


The Gaeilge task force covers:

  • Providing Irish-language versions for Irish place names
  • Providing English-language translations for Irish-language versions of Irish place names
  • Providing similar support for Irish people, events, institutions, etc. where appropriate according to the manual of style


To join the Gaeilge task force, just add your name to the list below, and maybe drop a line onto the talk page introducing yourself. Ideas for things to get stuck into are in the sections below.

To do[edit]

To-do items for members of Gaeilge task force[edit]

  • Find editors who have shown interest in this subject and ask them to take a look here.
  • Develop manual of style for translation of Irish-language phrases
  • Integrate best practice into the WP:IMOS
  • Forge links with Scottish/Manx (and Welsh/Cornish/Breton?) cousins
  • Update articles in Category:Untranslated Irish place names with no_translate=yes (as per updated {{Irish place name}} and {{Gaeltacht place name}}) to clear up blockages

To-do items for anyone[edit]

  • Add {{gaeilge}} where appropriate
  • Convert old format for Irish place names to the newer {{irish place name}} and related templates


Tagging and assessment[edit]

Any articles that are within the scope of this project should be tagged with the project banners of WikiProject Ireland and/or WikiProject Northern Ireland. You may also find {{WikiProjectBanners}} useful. To each of these banners, you should add gaeilge-task-force = yes as this will automatically put the page in the appropriate categories, such as Category:Gaeilge task force articles.



For main project templates, see the main project page for WikiProject Ireland and WikiProject Northern Ireland.
