This page contains a handbook for people wanting to start a Wikimedia wiki in a language which does not yet have its own wiki. See Special:SiteMatrix for an overview of already existing wikis (red links are not-existing wikis).


  • शुरुआत करइ से पहिले, जाना कि विकिमीडिया उपडोमेन मा एक समर्पित विकी प्राप्त करय कय नियम इनक्यूबेटर मा हियाँ टेस्ट विकी शुरू करय खातिर नियमऽन कय तुलना मा अधिक सख्त हय।
  • कृपा कइके एहका सुनिश्चित कइ ल्या कि आपके पास "पर्याप्त मनई" होइहैं जौन विकी मा योगदान देइहैं।
  • अउर इहौ सुनिश्चित कइ ल्या कि भाषा के पास एक वैध ISO 639 भाषा कोड अहै।

विकीमीडिया अइसी कउनो भाषा या उपभाषा मा विकी का होस्ट ना करे जेहके पास वैध ISO 639 कोड नाइ अहै, या एक भाषा अइसी लिपि मा होय जौन आम तौर पय स्वीकार या उपयोग मा नाहीं अहय। अगर आप एक व्यक्तिगत प्रोजेक्ट कै शुरुआत करा चाहत हैं, तौ विकिया पय क्यूयूबेटर प्लस देखा।


रजिस्टर करा और पसंद बदला

अगर आप अबहीं तक लॉग इन नाहीं केहे तौ कृपा कय के लॉग इन या एकाउंट बनवा। एहसे साथी योगदानकर्ताओं पय नज़र रक्खब आसान होइ जाये।

फिर, Special:पसंद पय जा (1) अउर आपन इंटरफेस भाषा बदला (2) अउर टेस्ट विकी कय सेटिंग्स बदला:

  • प्रोजेक्ट (3), जइसे विकीपीडिया Wp/xx के खातिर
  • भाषा कोड (4), "xx" Wp/xx मा

कदम 2: विकी कय शुरुआत करना

  • अगर आपका का शंका अहै कि आपकै भाषा योग्यता पूरी कय लेहे बा, आप Incubator:Requests for starting a test पय पूछ सकत हैं।
    अगर आपकय भाषा वैध होय ,तौ एह पर से हटि जाए।

अगर आपकय भाषा वैध अहय, एहकै सामग्री निश्चित रूप से रखी जाए अउर विकी बने के बाद सब होय चुका काम का नई विकी मा लावा जाए।

  • In the box below, replace "xyz" with your language code. Use an w:ISO 639-1 code, and if it does not exist, use an w:ISO 639-3 code.
  • Also replace "Wp" (Wikipedia) if it is for another project ("Wt" = Wiktionary, "Wn" = Wikinews, "Wb" = Wikibooks, "Wq" = "Wikiquote", "Wy" = Wikivoyage).

Click on the create button above, and in the edit form, replace "language name in English". Extra information can be found on this page. Then save the page.

  • Follow the instructions on the page you just created. You will be asked to create a main page, with the title Project/code/Main_Page.
  • You can list the wiki on Incubator:Wikis.

तिसरा कदम:निवेदन प्रस्तुत करना

You can develop a test wiki here without making a request at Meta, but such a request is necessary if you want the wiki to eventually be moved out of the Incubator.

  • It is recommended to merge your account so you are automatically logged in into all wikis including MetaWiki.
  • Follow the instructions at the handbook for requesters.
  • Update the Wx/xyz info page here by changing the parameter "meta" to | meta = yes
  • As we already said, the policy to get a Wikimedia subdomain are stricter than to start a test project here. Read the policy carefully.
    • If the test project meets all formal requirements, it will be marked "verified to be eligible". If the request after a long time is not yet marked so, a requirement is probably missing.

चउथा कदम:इनक्यूबेटर पय

  • Content work is the most important thing. Write and maintain articles.
  • It can sometimes take a long time before your wiki is approved. Don't be discouraged.
    • Most proposals have a status page which easily says what needs to be done before it is approved.
  • अपने टेस्ट विकी कै खयाल रखै खातिर आप टेस्ट विकी व्यवस्थापक के खातिर आवेदन कइ सकत हैं।
  • A member of the Language Committee may propose the approval of your test wiki. If not, and you think your test wiki meets the requirements, you can propose its approval on their talk page.

सामान्य दिशानिर्देश

कुछ नियम अहैं जौन सब विकीमीडिया प्रोजेक्ट का मानै का परे।

कदम5: स्थानीयकरण

The interface needs to be localised into your language. "Localization" includes translating the MediaWiki interface. Translation is one of the requirements before a wiki can be created. You can do this at Translatewiki. It is usually done parallel to the work on the test wiki.

  1. अगर आप अबहीं तक ट्रांसलेटविकी.नेट से परिचित नाही होय सका अहैं तौ, कृपा कइके देखैं- निर्देश हियाँ अहय
  2. ट्रांसलेट विकी.नेट पय "स्पेशल:अनुवाद" पय जा अउर अनुवाद शुरू करा।
    • While it would be even better to translate the entire interface, for a first project in a language you only need to localise the "most used MediaWiki messages". These are the messages that are of most importance to our readers.
      Note: If the interface is not yet available at all in your language — check the drop-down language menu at the top of the page—you will additionally need to translate at least 13% of the core MediaWiki messages in order to activate the interface in your language. (The "most used" messages count toward the 13%.)
    • For any subsequent project in a language, all the core MediaWiki messages and the messages of the main extensions used by the Wikimedia Foundation need to be translated. It is expected that the community of the first project has maintained and improved the localisation and consequently it should be no hardship.

You are encouraged to join the language support team for your language, where you can provide information about your language (such as plural rules) or test functionality. If there is any technical problem, such as a lack of input methods or fonts for your language, do not hesitate to contact either through our community portal or on translatewiki.net.

कदम 6: जब विकी मंजूरी मिलि जाय

If approved, the language committee will submit a bug request at Phabricator. Then it is only waiting on the developers to create the site. You can track the progress on Incubator:Site creation log.

कदम7: जब विकी बनि जाय

  • ठहरि जा! होइ सकत है कि आप इनक्यूबेटर से नई विकी कय सब पृष्ठऽन् का कॉपी करा चाहत होंय, लिकिन कृपा कइके अइसा न करैं ।
  • Someone will import all the pages with their history, and without their prefixes.
  • After the import from the Incubator is done, you can edit everything, create new articles, invite new editors, and do other things to grow the wiki. Graduating from the Incubator is not the end; it is the beginning.
