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:
 +
* [[:en:S:WELCOME|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)'''
 +
* [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Help:Contents|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 Bengali''. (I will create the Bengali namespace in a few minutes.) You should not worry about creating any pages specific to the Bengali wiki yet; instead, focus on translating.
 +
<br/>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 Bengali is "ব্লক".
 +
# Create the page [[Ben:ব্লক]].
 +
#* The contents of the page must be ''copied from the Eng: page''.
 +
#* Make sure that the page has <code><nowiki>{{:Eng:Blocks/translate}}</nowiki></code> at the top.
 +
# Edit the page [[Eng:Blocks/translate]]
 +
#* If there is already a line that looks like <code>|Ben=</code>, change it to <code>|Ben=ব্লক</code>
 +
#* If not, add the line <code>|Ben=ব্লক</code> just ''before'' the line that looks like <code>}}</code>
 +
# Start translating any English text into Bengali.
 +
#* When linking to other pages, always link with <code>Ben:</code> before the page name
 +
#* When using translated templates, always transclude with <code>Ben/</code> before the template name
 +
#* When categorizing pages, always categorize with <code>Ben/</code> 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.

Welcome!

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 Bengali. (I will create the Bengali namespace in a few minutes.) You should not worry about creating any pages specific to the Bengali 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 Bengali is "ব্লক".

  1. Create the page Ben:ব্লক.
    • 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 |Ben=, change it to |Ben=ব্লক
    • If not, add the line |Ben=ব্লক just before the line that looks like }}
  3. Start translating any English text into Bengali.
    • When linking to other pages, always link with Ben: before the page name
    • When using translated templates, always transclude with Ben/ before the template name
    • When categorizing pages, always categorize with Ben/ 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!
