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

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

{{Expand Spanish|topic=|date=}}

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

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

If the article on Spanish 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, El Peruano would be tagged as follows:

  • {{Expand Spanish|Diario Oficial El Peruano|topic=gov|date=August 2009}}

Missing article directory[edit]

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

Please translate from Spanish to English the articles Analisis de la Iglesia Catolica Cubana los Ultimos 15 anos Pagina1 through Pagina15 from username pedrodecuba ; category self-published work. I apreciate your help and i have problem with the translation for the English speakers if you can do translation to other languages of this articles i apreciate it too.Thanks.
