This page describes the current multi-lingual policy on OCS Inventory NG Wiki.

Rules

This wiki aims to provide a set of public domain help pages on OCS Inventory NG. These should be translated into as many languages as possible.

  • English is the main reference language, and all root pages should be named and written in English.
  • Other languages should be placed in an appropriately named sub-page of the English version. E.g. the French version of Help:Contents should be at Help:Contents/fr (not Help:Sommaire, Aide:Sommaire or Help:Sommaire/fr).
  • Language sub-pages should be named using the Wikipedia prefix for that language.
    • If your language is not listed in Template:Languages then we should not create pages in that language.
  • Sub-pages should only be used for translations into other languages, not for English content.
  • If an international version of a page exists but an English version does not, then please create a stub article for the English version as this aids navigation.
  • All pages in the namespaces should be tagged with the {{Languages}} template, which automatically creates links to all available translations.

The main page

The English version of our front page is located at Main Page. Translated versions are located at Main Page/code, where code is the language code (e.g. Main Page/fr. Please see Help menu for more details about creating or editing this content.

Importantly, the rule about language codes should be followed here as well:

  • Language sub-pages should be named using the Wikipedia prefix for that language.
    • If your language is not listed in Template:Languages then we should not have a main page in that language.
