    The official wiki now has the ability to accomodate three languages: Deutsch and русский (German and Russian)! The wiki is initially supporting these two languages to mirror the subforums. My hope is that we can expand to other languages soon :)

    Here's how to do it:

    Navigate to any page on the wiki and just type the two letter language code after the url. Here's an example:

    Russian: https://spaceengineerswiki.com/Main_Page/ru
    G
    erman: https://spaceengineerswiki.com/Main_Page/de

    I
    f the page doesn't exist, feel free to create it!

    You will also notice a new menu in the sidebar of the wiki, it will display the available languages when a translated page exists. You can also set your preferred default language in your account settings under "Internationalization" - that way it will default to your preferred language whenever you visit the wiki.

    I will be working with a couple of people who volunteer and are fluent in these languages to help lead the process. Suggestions, comments and criticisms welcome!

    Hello. As you know, Space Engineers is developing in Czech Republic , and I would like to introduce this game to Czech people. I have completed translating the Main Page on the Wiki into Czech , and i am starting to translate all the links on the Main Page , so it will be fully functional. The problem is , that if i create Main_Page/cs , click on "Save Page" , nothing will happen.Is creating a new language on the wiki disabled (that is propably it) or it is somehow my fault?

    Thank You , TheEnd

    Remove ANY external links (links pointing to something out of the wiki), it's bugged for now on translated pages. I didn't find the reason yet, as it works on my virtual machines with the exact same settings ...

    Thank you very much , your help was very useful. The Czech Main Page now exists , but it is still not showing the language in the side bar. This is propably an admin-level matter. :)

    Yep, Rhine has to add "cs" to the translation plugin to make it show up in the sidebar ... Just PM him about it to be sure he sees this.

    Translators are still required for a large part of the wiki, including those languages :

    - Polish
    - French
    - Russian
    - German
    - Czech
    - Spanish

    Also, Dutch may need a person or two to keep it updated "here and there". That would be really really really nice from you all. :)

    You should put more effort into the Czech translation, as the interpunction in most cases is incorrect (see https://www.cesky-jazyk.cz/slovnicek-pojmu/interpunkce-ve-vete-jednoduche/), along with other badly formed or nonsensical sentences.

    For example, the comma (,) shouldn't have a space infront of itself, but only after it. Capital letters (https://www.pravidla.cz/vice/psani-velkych-pismen/?kapitola=8) shouldn't be used in random words in the sentences. Since the structure of sentences in english and czech is slightly different, you may need to completely rewrite them. Also, keep in mind that the english translation isn't always correct. You may need to your own research in some cases.




    Instead, it should be like this - "V této době mají hráči možnost provozovat soukromé a veřejné servery přímo ze hry, ovšem v budoucnu by se mohla vyskytnout podpora dedikovaných serverů a vyhledávače her se systémem Steam match making.".
    Also, that statement is incorrect, as there's no support for dedicated at the moment. However, thanks for expanding the Space Engineers wiki. Just keep these suggestions in mind. :)

    You do realize TheEnd is just a user using his free time to translate the wiki. You could also edit the pages and fix any errors you find, as well as contribute to the translation effort. If the original author disagrees with your edit, they can simply revert it and you can talk about it on the articles talk page.

    No need to answer about a really old post already fixed since then. Even more, don't worry about the translation staff, we're on it already ...

    Hey Guys, so i think i can say hello here ^^

    in the last 2 days i was working on the german version of the wiki.

    I am not a pro or something like that, and my written english is bad, but i think in translation i can help from time to time. But i saw that there are even in the english version of some pages really... eyeburner? they looks so... clean...

    So i thought: "mhh... translation is good, improvement is better" and corrected some pages. My Informations comes from.... yeah... the game itselfs. i've got a testarea, where i can check most of all ^^

    Even if you cant understand the german language, check my pages because of "inspiration" ^^

    https://www.spaceengineerswiki.com/HUD/de
    https://www.spaceengineerswiki.com/Assembler/de
    https://www.spaceengineerswiki.com/Automatic_Rifle/de
    https://www.spaceengineerswiki.com/Hand_Drill/de
    https://www.spaceengineerswiki.com/Welder/de
    https://www.spaceengineerswiki.com/Grinder/de

    It would be nice to find some more ppl for the german part of the wiki, because the game rules and a good game, especially with all this technique features, needs a good wiki ^^

    like i said before, my written english ist bad ^^ if you find some fails, take them and love them ^^

    Hi guys,

    Any idea who is in charge of wiki now? Whom can I contact for the new language on the left hand side? Seems like old moderators are out.

    Perfect. Is it possible to create a Turkish link on the left side? I have already translated the home screen and will be working on to add more stuff. Also can find our Turkish community to help me.

    Thank you.

    Sure get a few more pages translated and Ill gladly add it in. I would like to see at least 5 pages translated that are linked from your main page. Try to start with the ones that are useful but also easy to get done. The item pages will take a while sure so start with a few of the other pages.

    As long as there's a couple additional translated pages to go along with it. So that the main page has something of the same language to link too.
