I've declared this project to get some of the huge amount of material out of Beer Parlour. I will pull it across to here as quickly as I can. --Richardb 08:44, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

any progress on this.[edit]


any progress on this. In my book it's pretty important, but too complicated for more than one person to work on it. Are you getting anywhere with it ?--Richardb 10:05, 19 May 2006 (UTC)


Could we just use {{trans-see}} on one of the pages to link to the other one? We wouldn't want soft redirects for the definitions and such, but for translations it might back sense. --Bequw¢τ 23:23, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

I don't think has ever been active, and now seems defunct with the introduction of the template {{trans-see}}. I'd suggest keeping it for historical reference, but since it's just about empty, why bother? Mglovesfun (talk) 13:29, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

{{trans-see}} isn't controversial when it directs users to a common form from an uncommon. But when there are two equally used terms with national differences, it's far from clear that {{trans-see}} should be used. I don't think there's consensus on this. --Bequw¢τ 00:16, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
I've seen translations transcluded on a template that is shared between pages, but I don't know if there is consensus for that, either. Nadando 00:29, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
The page has the subpage Wiktionary talk:WikiProject keeping translations common and synchronized across different spellings/BP April2006 that keeps some past discussion and has 1400 words. What makes you think that archiving it by tagging as inactive is insufficient and it needs to be deleted? --Dan Polansky 17:31, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Agreed, retracted. Mglovesfun (talk) 08:49, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
I like the original title
  • "Wiktionary:Project - Keeping Translations Common and Synchronised Across Different Spellings"
better than the one to which you have moved it:
  • "Wiktionary:WikiProject keeping translations common and synchronized across different spellings".
Why does the "Project" need to be called "WikiProject"; why "Wiki-"? Why in camel case "WikiProject"?
Sentence case capitalization seems okay.
The same applies to other pages that you have recently moved, such as:
We have Category:Wiktionary Projects, which I think is named well.
