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 Ukranian. You should not worry about creating any pages specific to the Ukranian 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 Ukranian is "блок". (There is already a blocks page in Ukranian, but let's imagine it's not created yet.)

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

Great work!

You have done pretty much everything correctly so far, and you've also picked up what you missed by seeing what I've done. I just wanted to stop by and say that your work is very much appreciated and you're doing a great job.

That being said, I recommend you try to find someone to help you. No matter how well you're doing, you can't do everything - building an entire wiki is not a one-man job; additionally, part of the character of a wiki is its community, and one person doesn't make a community. I suggest you maybe post on the Ukrainian subforum or otherwise try to recruit some more people to help you.

Again, though, I'm very pleased with what you've done thus far! Thank you for your excellent contributions!
