Adding to the list

If you don't want to figure out the table, just add your word/translation to the bottom of this talk page and it will be added for you.

If you know a word that's already listed in one of the other languages

Like, for example, you know how to say carburetor in Spanish.

  • Go to the article and click on the edit tab.
  • Scroll down until you see the word you have a translation for.
In the example, it looks like this:
|-
|[[carburetor]]
|<!--Italian--> 
|<!--Spanish-->
|<!--??-->
|-
  • Erase the language name and replace it with the translated word. Erase the other symbols too; those are just there to help you know where stuff goes.
In the example, you'd do this:
|-
|[[carburetor]]
|<!--Italian--> 
|carburador
|<!--??-->
|-
  • Finish scrolling down and hit the "show preview" button to make sure everything looks good.
  • Save page when you're satisfied with your edit.

If you want to add a word to the list

Like, for example, you think that beer is an important enough concept in the moped world that it deserves a foreign-language translation.

  • Go to the article and click on the edit tab
  • Scroll down in the first set of words until you get to the spot where your article would alphabetically be listed.
In the example, that'd be here:
|-
|[[base gasket]]
|<!--Dutch-->
|<!--German-->
|<!--French-->
|-
|[[brakes]] (disc/drum)
|<!--Dutch-->
|<!--German-->
|<!--French-->
|-
  • The |- tells the wiki that you want to make a new row. If you want to add a word, you want to make a new row. Copy the following text (changing words as necessary).
|beer
|<!--Dutch-->
|<!--German-->
|<!--French-->
  • Paste this text below the |- where you want your entry to go. You will have to add another |- to whichever side (top or bottom) of the new entry is missing one.
In the example, it'd be like this:
|-
|[[base gasket]]
|<!--Dutch-->
|<!--German-->
|<!--French-->
|-
|beer
|<!--Dutch-->
|<!--German-->
|<!--French-->
|-
|[[brakes]] (disc/drum)
|<!--Dutch-->
|<!--German-->
|<!--French-->
|-
  • Repeat this process for the other half of the dictionary. If you added the word to the Dutch/German/French table, add it to the Italian/Spanish/?? part too.
  • Finish scrolling down and hit the "show preview" button to make sure everything looks good.
  • Save page when you're satisfied with your edit.

?? Language

This is space built in to the table for some other language. Whoever picks a language and starts translating words first gets to decide which language this is.
