Before you get started...[edit | edit source]

What is Wiktionary?

- Wiktionary is an online free dictionary that everyone can edit.

4. You will find a button underneath saying Ar. (This is the Etruscan word for to make.)

5. Type the name of the article that you want to create, and then click Ar.

6. You may begin editing now. If the article you typed is already created, it will take you to the edit zone. If the article has not been created yet, you can create it.

Or simply do it here.

Remember to always use the format Wt/ett/(your article's name) when creating a new article. Since this is a test Wiktionary, you must use the prefix Wt/ett/.

2. You will be currently in the Read section. Besides that there is a button that says Edit. Click on this button. Or simply type [alt+shift+e] (Note: If you cannot edit certain articles, this is because they are protected).

3. Begin to edit.

4. Once you finish editing, be sure to click on Publish changes. You might want to check out Show preview before saving your edits. Also, you may add a summary of your edit. If your edit was a minor one, checkmark the box that says This is a minor edit.
