Wikipedia:Pages needing translation into English

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This version of Wikipedia is written in English (see Main Page#Wikipedia languages). With this being said, this page is a place to list foreign language articles on the English Wikipedia, to see if they can be translated before they are listed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. If someone speaks the language the article is written in and can state that it is not worth translating, the item should be moved to AfD or tagged with {{prod}}.

If an article has been listed here for two weeks and is still untranslated, it should be nominated for deletion.

Contents

Standard procedures

If you are here for the first time and have an article in a foreign language or a poorly translated article that you wish to list here to forestall possible deletion, you should start by finding the most appropriate template from among the ones listed at Wikipedia:Template messages/Translation and add it to the article page, save the page, and then follow the instructions in the banner on how to list the article here. You might need to click '[show]' to see all the instructions.

If you want to ask for a translation into English of an article from a foreign-language Wikipedia, go to Wikipedia:Translation.


Listing a page here

Most pages get listed here by subst'ing a {{Duflu}} or {{Needtrans}} template, following the instructions given at any one of several translation-related templates that are added to the article page. Many of the templates found at Wikipedia:Template messages/Translation propose adding the corresponding article here. See section Translation template usage below for details of the templates available for use on the main article page.

Other ways to find articles for inclusion on this page are:

Tagging

If the article is a mere copy of (all or part of) an article in a foreign-language Wikipedia, it can just be tagged with {{db-foreign}} to get added to Wikipedia:Candidates for speedy deletion: we want to discourage people who cut articles from one Wikipedia and paste to another without translating. You can leave a message on the contributing user's talk-page in their own language, using the templates from WP:PNT/Templates for user talk pages or using {{UE}}.

Replacement and restoration

Sometimes, legitimate articles are replaced by foreign-language content. In this case, the last English-language version should be restored from the history.

In addition, you may leave a message on the user's talk-page as indicated above.

Notification

When listing a page here, you might want to find the Wikipedia:Embassy, Ambassador, or Wikipedia:Local embassy member of the Wikipedia that relates to the language the article is in and invite them to move the page to their own Wikipedia. If you don't even know what language the article is in you could use Language recognition chart, and if that fails, some language identification web site, such as Xerox or What Language Is This? to find out. If you have come here from another Wikipedia, please note on this page what you think should be done with the article.

Deletion

If an article has been listed here for two weeks and is still untranslated, it should be nominated for deletion. (See also Guide to deletion.)

Articles that are not in English are still subject to all other forms of speedy deletion should they meet the criteria, and can be nominated for deletion by prod or afd should an editor feel they warrant deletion for a reason other than the language it is in, an article not being in English is not itself a criterion for deletion until the two week period has passed. Also, foreign-language articles are still subject to blp prod.

After translation

When a page listed here has been translated, its entry should be removed (or moved to section Cleanup if the translation needs another pair of eyes).

There are also procedures to follow at the Talk page of the article itself; see template {{translated page}} and Wikipedia:Translation#How to translate.

Translation template usage

Various templates are available to tag the article page needing translator attention, and one template is available for use here at WP:PNT.

The following templates are available to tag articles with translation issues in preparation for listing the article at WP:PNT:

  • {{notenglish}} - "a passage needs to be translated from Language into English"
  • {{cleanup-translation}} - "contains translated text and needs attention..."
  • {{hidden translation}} - "an earlier translated version may have introduced errors of fact..."
  • {{rough translation}} - "may have been generated by a computer or by a translator without dual proficiency"

The following templates are available for use at WP:PNT to add an entry linking to the article having the translation issue:

These templates, and other templates relating to translation issues outside the scope of WP:PNT can be found at Wikipedia:Template messages/Translation.


Templates for article pages

One of the following templates should be used at the top of the article page:

Not English

Template {{not English}} (alias: {{notenglish}}) is available for a page that needs translation in its entirety (so it would be appropriate to delete if not fixed):

1. Use the notice {{notenglish|NameOfLanguage}} if you know the language used, or {{notenglish}} if you cannot identify the language of the page in question.
2. Add a mention on this page.
2.1. If you know what language was used, add:
{{subst:Needtrans| pg= | Language=NameOfLanguage| Comments= }}--~~~~
replacing NameOfLanguage with the English name of the language.
2.2. If you cannot identify the language used, add:
{{subst:Needtrans| pg= | Language=unknown| Comments= }}--~~~~
3. You may also choose to warn the contributing editor with {{uw-english}}, the "use English" warning, or suggest submitting it to a different language Wikipedia with {{contrib-xx1}}, where xx is the language code (see available templates). An alternate template for identifying the article as having been listed here is {{uw-notenglish}}.
Bilingual versions of this template have been created for Norwegian, Spanish, Polish, and French. See the note on these at {{uw-notenglish}}.

Not English section

If there is just a section that needs translation:

1. Use the notice {{Not English|NameOfLanguage|section}}, with the word "section" as a second unnamed parameter at the beginning of the non-English content.
2. Add a mention on this page, as above.
3. You may wish to place a note on the talk pages of contributors of non-English material, saying that English Wikipedia is meant for English-language content, inviting them to translate it, and, if appropriate, suggesting the location of the Wikipedia edition for the language in question should they wish to post content in that language.

Cleanup translation

Template {{cleanup translation}} (alias: {{cleanup-translation}}) is available if the article has been translated, but needs attention from someone approaching dual fluency in both languages:

1. Use the notice {{cleanup-translation}}.
2. Add a mention to the translation cleanup section.

Hidden translation

Template {{Hidden translation}} is available if the article was translated at an earlier point and contained factual errors, while subsequent edits fixed up the English without fixing the errors of fact. The article now looks good and not "machine-translated" anymore, but the original errors of fact are still there, papered over with a facade of good English.

1. Use the notice {{Hidden translation}}, for example, {{Hidden translation|lang-name|version-nbr}}
2. Add a mention to the translation cleanup section, using the provided {{Duflu}} invocation.

Rough translation

Template {{rough translation}} is available if the article has been translated, but it looks to be either a machine translation or by someone who doesn't have a good command of the target language, and needs attention from a translator; more than just copyediting is required.

1. Use the notice {{rough translation}}, for example, {{rough translation|German|Deutsch}}.
2. Add a mention to the translation cleanup section.

Templates for use here

Once you have tagged the article page with one of the templates above, the banner that appears will provide instructions on using a template to add an entry to the translation cleanup section.

One of the two templates {{Duflu}} and {{Needtrans}} should be used at the bottom of the translation cleanup section:

Duflu

Template {{Duflu}} is available for use in the translation cleanup section.

Follow instructions at the expanded banner generated by {{Rough translation}} or {{Cleanup translation}} to subst template {{Duflu}} onto the page at the bottom of the cleanup section. Sample invocations:

{{subst:Duflu |pg=Article name |Language=unknown |Comments= }} ~~~~

you can use the optional orig= param to add a link to the original article see {{Duflu}} for usage details.

{{subst:Duflu |pg=Nuclear submarine |Language=French |orig=:fr:Sous-marin nucléaire |Comments= }}~~~~

Needtrans

Template {{Needtrans}} is available for use in the translation cleanup section.

Follow instructions at the expanded banner generated by {{tlx|Not English]] to subst template {{Needtrans}} onto the page at the bottom of the cleanup section. Sample invocations:

{{subst:Needtrans |pg=Wilhelm II, German Emperor |Language=German |Comments= }} ~~~~

Please consider also placing

{{subst:uw-notenglish |1=Template:not English}} ~~~~

on the talk page of the author.

Katherine Miranda

The language of this article is Spanish. ... discospinster talk 19:49, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

I don't think this article is worth translating, and should be AfD'd – it's an autobiographical article about the founder of a peace campaign group in Colombia. Of the five references stated in the article, the second, third and fourth references don't mention the subject at all, and the fifth is from a non-RS blog. The reference from La Silla Vacia the the only reputable one, and it's a video interview with her about her group's campaigning, so it's not an independent point of view. Having worked as youth coordinator for Antanas Mockus doesn't make Ms Miranda herself notable, per WP:INHERITED. Richard3120 (talk) 18:01, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

And not a brilliant translation. I will do the basics, but the French Infobox build|nom=Biographie pulls in the biography with some magic, the French yet again have decided to have templates that rather than just list the facts have to bring it in from elswehere, so that is why id doesn't show up in EN:WP, I have to hunt now for where the data for the infobox actually is, because it ain't in the article.

Article in the Korean wikipedia is at; gan:春城_(朝鮮人), and it is not updated and very short, 1KB. So this artcile might be translated from multiple sources on the web and edited, using external link such as http://terms.naver.com/entry.nhn?docId=529697&cid=46648&categoryId=46648.

Boarding school number 49 named G.I.Rossolimo

The initial language of this article was Russian. Likely machine translation. - HyperGaruda (talk) 10:19, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Definitely a machine translation; the title is the dead giveaway. Anytime you see "<NounPhrase> named (or, by/in the name of) PersonOrPlaceName" in English from a Russian original, it's a literal translation by someone who doesn't know Russian. The actual name in English would be "PersonOrPlaceName <NounPhrase>". In this case, the move has already been done by User:Triptothecottage, and it is now named, the G.I.

Two other editors (mostly) have worked on this, doing what appears to be copy-editing of that portion of the Google translate that is intelligible, and dropping the rest. I've started in on doing some translation, including restoring some of the dropped sentences with new translations, and also putting some of the dropped sentences back into the article, this time in the original German since the garbled English was useless and immune to copyediting, so they can be translated later. They are all tagged {{not English-inline}} and can be easily found. There were also a great number of missing wikilinks as well as some incorrect ones. I also resolved some red-links and added some {{ill}} links where de has the link but we don't. This article is well worth having, and I'd like some additional help here from translators.

French, about an Algerian singer. The text itself is not bad in comparison to what I have been looking at today, but that is a low bar. It's short though, but meh as usual with french the writing tone is a problem. Possibly someone should look up a biography.

France in the 1920s

The initial language of this article was French. It seems to have been machine translated from fr:Années folles en France. Opencooper (talk) 21:22, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

A very BAD machine translation. I have put some heroic effort into this, which was somewhat interesting from a puzzle solving POV. I am currently on strike after realizing that the "trade shows" and "fairs" that were puzzling me were in fact literary salons. Yes. Trade show is sometimes translated as a salon, into French, but Gertrude Stein (it was realizing that we were talking about Gertrude Stein that was the key) definitely didn't stage trade shows. It's now a bad and incomplete article that still has some language issues, but much better than it was. I intend to come back to it (how could you overlook Art Deco) but feel free to pitchin if you like Elinruby (talk) 04:28, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

@Elinruby: Please see Talk:France in the 1920s#Article_title. Mathglot (talk) 11:27, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Since there was consensus on the talk page (3 editors) and no opposition I have moved this page to [[[Années folles]]. The French article was linking to... "Golden 20s" I think it was, which turns out to be what the period was called in Germany. There seem to be a few parallels but that article mentions Paris only in passing. So. I think I have fixed the wikidata item, but I'd never done this before so someone might want to look at that. I am slowly working my way back to this ugly problem. We do need to mention Art Deco, which is completely absent from the article right now. It has its own quite detailed and authoritative-looking page, so we don't need to be exhaustive, but a summary really needs to be included here, and the stuff about Hemingway and the many art movements that blossomed in this period as well. Also Dada has its own page but should also be mentioned and linked to. I could use some help if anyone is so moved. There is also a problem with a related page, School of Paris, which was a group active in Paris at the time, but also was the name of a medieval group of manuscript illustrators. This needs to be split into separate articles Elinruby (talk) 23:46, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
Wikidata now fixed, per d:Talk:Q702442. You can see the difference in the language links at fr:Années folles as well as the English article. (Who knew that Indonesia had an article about it?) Mathglot (talk) 07:21, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

The translation isn't bad, and economically speaking this is an important region of Colombia, and it is indeed known throughout the country as the Eje Cafetero, the "coffee-growing axis". However, it reads like a tourist advertisement at the moment, and there are no references at all for the article text. If it is rewritten and references could be found this article is worth keeping.

pages created by PootisHeavy

PootisHeavy (talk · contribs) seems to be creating a lot of pages translated mostly from German Wikipedia, but also Hungarian and Polish. I haven't examined them yet, to see if they all belong here; maybe we could mark them as we go through them, and either strike out or delete the entries that look fine in English, and mark the ones that have already been examined and should stay here.

This list was scraped from the Special:Recent changes page. I'm not sure if this is a general technique we should continue to use, but it certainly pulled up a lot of pages real fast in this case.

Each article may be checked for the following items:

Article status (article link - source lang - what's been done; tbd: what's left to do)


This list was generated by scraping Special:Recent changes on Feb 17 01:48, applying the regex ^\s*N\s+\d\d:\d\d\s+([^(]+)\s+.*?PootisHeavy.*$, and adding bullet and link brackets. Trailing hyphen, language ident, and anything else you see was added manually subsequently (some of it by PootisHeavy!). A longer list of these articles can be found here.

I will take the translation from French, can you then cross-check against German, User:Mathglot? We do it together. Si Trew (talk) 12:51, 31 July 2017 (UTC)
This is a hard one. It is a bit loaded. I will do the first draft but it will need some others to do WP:N. It is definitely an article worth having at EN:WP. The pics in the infobox are at FR:WP under their copywright rules and not at Commons. It is hard to get the tone right. These are people deported from France, a somewhat sentimental French article. EN:WP doesn't do sentimental, we do facts. I will make a start with the TR but I hve to cut a lot out. On the day that five hundered thousand of my ancestors lost their lives on French soil, one hundred years ago, and I attend a remembrance day ceremony every year to say thank you to them to allow me to be an idiot, I think it is right and fitting to remember that France always came to our aid.Well, they gave us the venue. The Auld Enemy, as Rabbie Burns said. (He meant England.) Si Trew (talk) 13:06, 31 July 2017 (UTC)
I think I have had a fair go at improving this article so it runs better in English, but it needs another cut through by a native French speaker and a German. As it is, it is better than it was, there were a few Gallicisms that I knocked into English, but it was pretty good anyway and absolutely we should have this article. I should take the tags off because it is no longer in French, but leave it here for your attention. If anyone else wants to take em off, I shall not be worried. Short of references but let's keep it on the day of a hundred years ago people were fighting in knee deep mud in Paeschenndaaele (however you want to spell it). Lest we forget. Let us in our memory, make it what they fought for, our freedom. And now we have the encylopaedia that anyone can edit. Si Trew (talk) 13:34, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for looking into that.

I don't know the english words but enduit seems to be a lime or plaster wall covering on the exterior side of a wall's insulation (stucco???) and a départ d'enduit is apparently a thingie to make sure the foot of the wall is straight. Something there about moisture drainage too. I will look at this further if it languishes. The French original is marked as a good article.

did a quick pass for grammar and obvious problems like a french-wiki template consistent use of present tense and confusion about pronouns. Did not compare to original and this definitely needs to be done. I left 3-4 sentences alone that raised questions in my mind, but I got a lot of the low-hanging fruit (all I am up to at this moment), thus, I hope, making it somewhat more accessible to monolinguals. Based on previous translations of articles about old buildings, I am inclined to believe most of what this says, but again, it was fairly rough and I haven't checked for accuracy yet.

Good point; when doing the translations we kind of automatically assume that the original language has some kind of direct line to Truth, but of course, that's not the case. Plus, I think it's evolved since it was created eight years ago, so diverged from the French. Good job finding refs including for the husband's name.

@JJMC89: I can translate the Esperanto article, but not now — I've been up all night! — and there's a lot of material that's only in the Czech source, which I can't help with.

Axonometry

The initial language of this article was German. Needs the attention of an maths expert. The article is based on https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axonometrie. I don't know how close it is to the original. I already cleaned up the first two sections. I'm not sure if the issues with the article are actually grammatical ones, or just awkward wordings chosen by the author.SharkD  Talk  11:42, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

I don't think belongs here, as you say it needs a maths expert rather than language--Jac16888 Talk 16:26, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
Well, actually it needs both: a math expert that can understand German. Missing either skill risks getting something horribly wrong. Possibly a tandem team of two people, a math expert with a bit of German, and a German speaker somewhat familiar with advanced mathematics could do it. Mathglot (talk) 02:56, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
It's very technical and btw is more geometry and architectural drawing than pure mathematics. I can read it and it's not gibberish but I would need to research the facts to verify them. My German is definitely not up to this and the French version is even more technical fyi. It's an option for verification though. Elinruby (talk) 04:32, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
There is some weird stuff, such as where it says, "The result is independent of the order of the steps." This can't be true, since step #4 definitely cannot be done before step #1. The original author is AWOL and has stopped answering questions. I don't want to slap {{clarify}} tags all over the article, as that might scare the author (and other people) away. SharkD  Talk  19:39, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
Added an {{Expert needed}} template to it, and initiated a Talk page discussion. Maglot (talk) 06:59, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
I am going to take another look at this just because I am sick of the stuff I have been working on and need a break. I don't think I should try to edit it right now but as a baseline let's say it's 3-d solids so the math may be DiffEq. It may be easier than that though because a lot of it is here is so-and-so's theorem, which I assume can be looked up even if it's a little more complicated than a google. It made perfect sense when I started to read up but this is not light reading for the elevator. It probably also matters that I learned my math in two different languages and neither of them was German. The article possibly has somw relationship to the French version but when I scanned *that* text the proofs all contained trigonometry, so that it's not immediately obvious that you could verify the German->English by looking at the French unless maybe someone did a separate translation and compared. I will see if I can get anywhere with this and note if I do. Elinruby (talk) 11:27, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
'OK I read the thing all the way through although to check any of it I would need pencil and paper, but... the thing with order of the steps? wasn't referring to steps 1 though four; it's talkng about the three steps under number 3, and no, the order doesn't matter. It's like taking three turns to go around a block, and you can take three lefts or three rights and get the same result. Make sense? The rest of it seems ok to me. Do you have any other questions? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Elinruby (talkcontribs) 14:51, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

BigHaz It's clear this is MT or written by someone with poor English skills, with all the false friends ("generality", lol!) but what makes you say it's from Catalan other than the subject area? There's no indication of it in the rev history, nor a Catalan wikidata link in the languages sidebar. Could easily be from Spanish. If we're not sure, best thing is to leave the language param blank. Mathglot (talk) 22:32, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
I went with Catalan due to the subject matter, rather than anything else. I think I took the title of the source as being Catalan rather than Spanish, too, but looking at it this morning (my time), I don't really know. Haven't tagged pages with this template in quite some time, so it's good to know/be reminded to leave it blank for the future. BigHaz - Schreit mich an 22:39, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
BigHaz: So it turns out it was created by newbie editor Parviz1337 (talk · contribs) from Farsi Wikipedia. This all started out on this edit at Catalonian Civil War where Parviz overwrote the man's correct name in that article with an English translation of it. He then clicked the red link there to create the new article with the wrong name. His real name is Francesc de Verntallat as can be seen in both Catalan and Spanish Wikipedias. I've now renamed the article back to the correct name. Now that we have those two links, it appears to have been translated from the Spanish one, although not surprisingly the two are similar.
