Do we have any policies that relate to articles other than English? I'm looking at ForcesWerwolf, which was recently created, and am not sure what to do with it.

Perhaps we could have a template that says, "this article is in need of translation" or similar? --Douglas Muth 04:00, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

This is an English-language wiki, so it's just like any other page: fix what you can. I translated using AltaVista and expanded it.
We have an interested fur here who speaks German; start a German-language WikiFur? --Rat 05:59, 4 September 2006 (UTC)
If anyone is willing to step up and be the lead, I'd be more than glad to help them get started. It seems to me that German would be the language which would make the most sense as an alternative. There are societal differences that might make the resulting wiki slightly different. I'm sure they could be worked out by the right leader - but he or she would probably have to come from the German community to be able to do that. --GreenReaper(talk) 18:41, 4 September 2006 (UTC)
There is a number of German speaking furs (including me) around here, so translating stuff from German shouldn't be a problem. Feel free to ask me if there's any need for translation. --Conti| 14:18, 4 September 2006 (UTC)
One possibility: Because this is primarily an English-language wiki, perhaps articles in other languages can be presented both in their original language and in English? ----DuncanDaHusky(talk) 15:32, 4 September 2006 (UTC)
How about using article subpages (ie. ForcesWerwolf/de). Category tags could be used as well. This would make it easy to locate articles to copy over if/when we get foreign-language furry wikis. --Rat 20:32, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
I've created a proposal for a French WikiFur ( Please go and comment on the proposal. --Rat 01:11, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
