Incubator:Requests for starting a test

If you are unsure whether your language is valid to be hosted here or have its own subdomain, you can ask here for advice.

Instructions   [view]

  • Be sure you have a user account here at Incubator.
  • How to request? Just say which language and which project (Wikipedia, Wiktionary, ...) and give a link to a Wikipedia article or another webpage with some information.
    • We need this to know the ISO 639 language code. If you already know the language code, please provide it.
    • If that language doesn't already have an existing wiki in another Wikimedia project, please provide a translation for the phrase "Main Page" in that language.
  • Add a new request
  • And then? Someone will say whether you are allowed to start a test, and if so, he will give a link where you need to start your test.

Mozarabic WiktionaryEdit


Do you have knowledge of Mozarabic? --MF-W {a, b} 19:29, 20 August 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I wrote User:Romandalusí
Please note that it will be difficult to get this approved, considering Mozarabic is an extinct language. --OWTB (talk) 06:30, 21 August 2020 (UTC)
but there's not the only one extinct language on wiktionary and there's medieval glossarys and vocabulary preserved. That, why y thought about wiktionary (and no other wikiproject) indeed. Also, The translation of The little Prince un Mozarabic will be edited soon — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Romandalusí (discussioncontribs) 06:57, 21 August 2020 (UTC).
You can of course try to start a Mozarabic Wiktionary here. However, I would suggest to instead contribute Mozarabic entries to another Wiktionary, like the English or Spanish one. That has two advantages: 1) wider visibility, 2) the infrastructure (e.g. template, technical features) is already there and you don't need to create it yourself. --MF-W {a, b} 08:56, 21 August 2020 (UTC)
Of course! . It's something i usually do already, but perhaps we could get both of this, a Mozarabic wiktionary and entries to a other wiktionarys. Regards. User:Romandalusí
Sure, then feel free to start something at Wp/mxi. --MF-W {a, b} 14:28, 21 August 2020 (UTC)

Klingon WikipediaEdit

I would like to request Klingon Wikipedia, a conlang used for Star Trek. Its iso code is tlh --Altan2489 (talk) 21:59, 24 September 2020 (UTC) Also the wiki article is

Hello. Klingon is a constructed language that does not have enough fluent speakers, and it is thought that it will not satisfy the eligibility of LPP. See m:History of the Klingon Wikipedia and m:Requests for new languages/Wiktionary Klingon. --Sotiale (talk) 01:37, 25 September 2020 (UTC)

Carpathian Romani WikipediaEdit

Wp/kcg/Tyap WikipediaEdit

Test project. Kambai Akau (talk) 23:48, 3 December 2020 (UTC)

I think that's fine, go ahead. --MF-W {a, b} 11:00, 4 December 2020 (UTC)

Simple English WikivoyageEdit

Pidgin English WikipediaEdit DaSupremo (talk) 11:09, 19 February 2021 (UTC) ISO 639-2 Code: cpe DaSupremo (talk) 11:09, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Pidgin is widely spoken in West Africa especially in Ghana and Nigeria. Pidgin language produce knowledge as most people speak it because it is a combination of English and other local dialects. This makes it easy for people to interact without any difficulties. BBC for instance, launched the use of Pidgin in its activities.<></> So I think when Pidgin language is introduced to the Wikimedia Movement, it will help in achieving the movement's aim of making knowledge free and accessible to all. DaSupremo (talk) 11:09, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi! Do you plan to write articles yourself in Pidgin English? Specifically, what variant? I think there might possibly be a problem as the code "cpe" (which is not an ISO 639-3 code, which we normally use, but a -2 code, as you said) is for "English based Creoles and pidgins". So there would be the question if all of them can share one wiki. --MF-W {a, b} 02:07, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

Pre-reform RussianEdit

Recently, the pre-reform Russian language has been gaining popularity among certain groups in Russia. Russians wrote in pre-reform Russian before the October Revolution. It would be cool to create such a section, many people will immediately start editing it. The problem is the lack of language code, where ru-old is found, but not everywhere. --Arseniy1302 (talk) 22:53, 16 July 2021 (UTC)

This is not possible. --MF-W {a, b} 10:47, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
Why? We have Simple English and Latin wikipedia.
New such projects are not covered by the Language Proposal Policy. "ru-old" requests have already been rejected multiple times. --MF-W {a, b} 16:45, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
And for what reasons were they rejected? Why they are not covered by the Language Proposal Policy?
