Really current raving now that we have a multitude of wiki[edit]

What I propose that someone of you who has bots to command should consider implementing the following

  • Let's look up what every language name is in every language
  • Look up what's ===Translations=== or similar expression that the bot can spot the translations area in each language
  • map the language names and language codes
  • parametrise a bot to crawl the wiktionaries linking en:Word Translations to *Finnish: sana and *Swedish: ord and so forth and vice versa from other languages to English

So by locating "*Language" or *Language in section titled Translations the bot would determine to look for the word "sana" in http://fi.wiktionary.org and upon success (the target exists) links to it and hides the namespace.

Could someone with knowledge on wikibots assess the feasibility of such a scheme? Once a full round is done on all wiktionaries the bot should focus looking at new entries and linking them as they appear.

I see no harm in this kind of automation, it would actually help weed out stupid jokes and give more precision on nyances as the thesauri could be surfed translanguage.

Semi-Current stuff[edit]

Past ravings[edit]

Wheew. There's just so much to do in developing Wiktionary.


Translation interest:


I started contributing on 21.02.2003, because I believe that having a fairly complete free multilingual dictionary in every language will make the World a better place.

I'll do mostly English-Finnish-English, maybe some other stuff too.

I know Finnish and English well.
I know moderatelly Swedish and Russian
I know some in French and German

I believe that by the year 2023, Wiktionary will be the dictionary of the planet.
