For Translators

Page with a translation must bear the name of original English page, plus languages abbreviation (two-letter language code) preceded by a '.', e.g. for About, page in Russian will be About.ru.


  • Titles are in one language, which is good for referencing and keeping wiki documentation in order.
  • It also provides a clear mapping between original and translated pages.
  • It is easy to implement.

What functionality I expect from Multilanguage Extension

  • All pages named as described above.
  • There must be a list of available translations for current page on top of each page. Let's call it "Page languages list". (Extension detects if page with each language code exists).
  • There is a field in the user preferences, called "Language" (Already exists in MediaWiki)
  • Navigation improvements:
    • Let's say user have Language field in preferences set to 'tr'. Then:
      • if user requests page Main Page, and page Main Page.tr exists, he automatically redirected to Main Page.tr.
      • if user clicks some other language in "Page languages list", then his "Language" field in preferences sets to that language, and he continues browsing, according to previous rules.
  • It would be nice to have Language field set up according the browser settings automatically for new users and guests.
