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 Hindi. You should not worry about creating any pages specific to the Hindi 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 Hindi is "ब्लाकों".

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

ScratchHindi-wiki GitHub organization

Hi, I saw you were an author on the Hindi Scratch Wiki. Do you own the ScratchHindi-wiki Organization on GitHub? If yes, are you interested in transferring your repos to the International Scratch Wiki Organization? It would be easier for everybody to manage all code used for the Scratch Wiki. You'll still be able to work on it. Smrman (talk) Smrman's logo.gif 15:06, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

I would like to discuss something

Hi, I am Purvitekriwal, a hindi wiki editor. I noticed many changes and translations were made by you. That is nice. I appreciate you for your dedication towards the wiki but I would like to confirm if you are taking help of some translation software. I am suspecting that as I found a lot of grammar wrong in many articles and in the history, many edits were made by you. Like I observed you are using a fullstop '.' instead of a purnaviram'।'. Please confirm that. Also to avoid conflicted editing I would like to know if I can change rhe grammar of the articles. You may be in the process of editing when I saw. I would like you to confirm. If you want we can talk in hindi as well. Will wait for 1 or 2 days before editing them.Purvitekriwal (talk) 10:32, 9 November 2022 (UTC)
