WikiFur:News/TurriWiki links with WikiFur
Many of our contributors (and over 10% of visitors) come from non-English-speaking cultures. While it is great that they choose to contribute here, I have often thought it would be nice if they could develop resources in their native languages as well - and that it would be even better if we could help them as well. We try to cover topics like とらんすふぁ (TransFur) and ČeSFuR, but it is hard to do so without the experience of native speakers, who usually write best in their own language. Having native-language furry wikis allows those who could not contribute in English to add information; those who can write in English are then able to translate the information.
You can create interlanguage links to TurriWiki articles on the same topic using the syntax [[fi:Article name]]. Place this link at the bottom of the page - it will appear on the bottom of the sidebar. To create an inline link to an article, use [[:fi:Article name|link text]] (or [[TurriWiki:Article name|link text]]). Return links to WikiFur can be made using the [[en:, [[:en: and [[WikiFur: prefixes respectively.
WikiFur encourages the creation of open-content furry wikis in a variety of languages. Direct translation of articles is welcome, as long as each wiki is using the GFDL and similar links are used. If you are interested in creating a version of WikiFur in your native language, or if you want to link WikiFur an existing furry wiki in another language, let me know - our host can be your host, if desired. I hope this is only the first of many such collaborations! --GreenReaper(talk) 07:01, 13 June 2006 (UTC)
