There's no need to do interwiki's manually, User:Interwicket will do them for you (though you can if you want, it's sort of a waste of time). If you want to help with Japanese, I suggest looking at Category:Requests (Japanese). Which lists some things that need doing. Conrad.Irwin 13:29, 15 November 2009 (UTC)


Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far.

If you are unfamiliar with wiki editing, take a look at Help:How to edit a page. It is a concise list of technical guidelines to the wiki format we use here: how to, for example, make text boldfaced or create hyperlinks. Feel free to practice in the sandbox. If you would like a slower introduction we have a short tutorial.

These links may help you familiarize yourself with Wiktionary:

  • Entry layout (EL) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing page for a similar word, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary, though it may be a bit technical and longwinded. The most important part is that Wiktionary only accepts words that have been in somewhat widespread use over the course of at least a year, and citations that demonstrate usage can be asked for when there is doubt.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide for Wikipedia users useful.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • A glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
  • If you have anything to ask about or suggest, we have several discussion rooms. Feel free to ask any other editors in person if you have any problems or question, by posting a message on their talk page.

You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage. This shows which languages you know, so other editors know which languages you'll be working on, and what they can ask you for help with.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! If you have any questions, bring them to the Wiktionary:Information desk, or ask me on my talk page. If you do so, please sign your posts with four tildes: ~~~~ which automatically produces your username and the current date and time.

Again, welcome! Conrad.Irwin 13:29, 15 November 2009 (UTC)


Our current practice is to classify things like "背信する" as verbs on their own, even if they are otherwise sum-of-parts (i.e. understandable as "背信" + "する"). If you want to dispute that, raise it at WT:BP. Our current Japanese editors seem to support it, though. Keφr 07:37, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

It might be too late by now, but I'll go ahead and post anyway.
google books:"背信して" をご覧になれば、いろいろな著者が「背信する」という単語を使ってることが判明します。Keφrさんがスレッドで返事した通り、Wiktionaryではほかの辞書に載っているか、載っていないかは別として、むしろ出版された資料で実際にどう使っているかは私たちの原則です。
If you look at google books:"背信して", it will be clear that various authors are using the term 背信する (haishin suru). As Keφr replied in the thread, at Wiktionary, we don't look at whether other dictionaries include a term, and instead our basic principle is how a term is actually used in published materials.
