Project: Mentor Linguist Scribe Translation Project

Second Life is an international platform and volunteers need to have clear, translated information in all languages! This project will create sub-pages in other languages for the main English pages. The language template used will create automatic language links at the top of the pages, such as the one on this project page. Language Template Information

Mentor Linguists/Scribes can participate in this project by choosing a wiki page from the list below and translating it into the language(s) they speak fluently. This suggestion list will be updated periodically with new pages.

Second Life Mentor Linguists who are not familiar with wiki, if needed please contact a Scribe whose name is listed on this page, for assistance in adding the newly translated page to wiki.

Second Life Mentor Scribes please feel free to help do any translations and also list your name here if you are willing to assist Linguists using the wiki for this project.

SubPage Help

  • If you have listed your name as someone willing to help create a subpage and receive a request: Please mark the language line of that page after it is set up with Empty subpage ready for "requesters name" and notify the requester.
  • If you are translating a page and need assistance to make the subpage: Please contact someone from the above list of names. Let them know what page and what language. When you are notified it is ready, type the page name with the /language code behind it in the search box and click Go. Place your translation on the edit page and save.

Videotutorial on how to create translation pages


The following manual might seem to be hard to understand in the beginning, but please try to follow it step by step. In case you experience any difficulties or got questions about the process, don't hesitate to ask a Mentor scribe or any seasoned linguist. We're here to help each other =)

  • Log into wiki with your Second Life name and password https://wiki.secondlife.com
  • Choose a page from the Suggested Pages to Translate list. (Check to be sure no one else is already doing that page in your language please)
  • Click the word Edit beside "Suggested Pages to Translate"
  • Enter your information next to the language
    • Example: English: Nov 21 2007, Lexie Linden, In Progress.
  • Click "Show preview". If you think it looks good, click "Save page".
  • Click the link of the page you have chosen to translate. Click the edit tab on that page. Type these 14 characters just as you see them: {{multi-lang}} on the top line and add a blank line below it if it is not already on the page.
  • Now copy everything on the edit page except the bottom of the page tags. Tags will have a set of brackets around words. Click on "Save page."
  • In the Search box on the left side of the wiki page, type the exact name of the page you have chosen and add a /your-language-code. This is how you create the language subpage. Example: Tao of Volunteers/fr then Press Go.
  • Click the red link at the top of the page that shows your new page name.
  • You are now on the edit screen of your translation page. Paste the English version you copied here or paste to a basic text editor such as Notepad. You will want to use the same wiki syntax that is used on the English version page.. to have bold and italics marks etc.
  • Translate the text leaving the wiki syntax intact. Please do not add any additional information to the translated page. English and translated versions should be the same. (If you did not remove the English text as you translated, remove all the English text you pasted on your subpage once you have typed your translation)
  • Change the {{multi-lang}} code on top of your page to {{multi-lang|1=ENGLISH_ARTICLENAME|2=/LANGUAGE_CODE}}
    • For our privious example, this would be {{multi-lang|1=Tao of Volunteers|2=/fr}}
  • Click on "Show Preview" at the bottom of the page to see if your page looks how you want. If not, continue to edit. If done, click "Save Page".
  • Now, press the move link on top of the page and enter the translation of the articles topic in the To new title field.
    • For our example, this would be Tao du Volontaire
  • You can leave the "Reason" field blank and click the Move Page button.
  • Return to this (English) project page and edit your chosen page information in the Suggested Pages to Translate. Please change the original date to the finished date and change "In Progress" to "DONE". Put a mark in the This is a minor edit checkbox and click Save Page.
  • Note: Wiki is based on teamwork. Edits that correct typing errors or content errors should be welcomed. Pages that are accurate and up to date make wiki more valuable for all!

Thank You for helping make the Second Life wiki a better resource for everyone!
