Welcome! Before you get started I must instruct you in the way that this wiki works. First, please read either (or both) of the following:

  • The English wiki Welcome tutorial - much more beginner-friendly, gets you started with wikitext syntax, has stuff specifically related to the Scratch Wikis. (Recommended if you can read this sentence without Google Translate)
  • MediaWiki help pages - translated into many languages, probably including yours, and describes how wikis work in general. (Recommended if you need something in your own language)

Next, heed the following instructions:

Your focus for now will be translating pages from English to {{{lang}}}. You should not worry about creating any pages specific to the {{{lang}}} wiki yet; instead, focus on translating.
When creating a page to be translated, you must follow the steps below. Let's say you want to translate the page Eng:Blocks. According to Google Translate, "blocks" in {{{lang}}} is "{{{blocks}}}".

  1. Create the page [[{{{ns}}}:{{{blocks}}}]].
    • The contents of the page must be copied from the Eng: page.
    • Make sure that the page has {{:Eng:Blocks/translate}} at the top.
  2. Edit the page Eng:Blocks/translate
    • If there is already a line that looks like |{{{ns}}}=, change it to |{{{ns}}}={{{blocks}}}
    • If not, add the line |{{{ns}}}={{{blocks}}} just before the line that looks like }}
  3. Start translating any English text into {{{lang}}}.
    • When linking to other pages, always link with {{{ns}}}: before the page name
    • When using translated templates, always transclude with {{{ns}}}/ before the template name
    • When categorizing pages, always categorize with {{{ns}}}/ before the category name

While you are doing all this, start looking on Scratch for more people to help you - editing a wiki is not a one-man job.

Good luck editing!~~~~
