Hello everybody! I'm a new italian wookieepedian. I can edit some articles but i wondered if i can make translations of the articles for a possible wookieepedia in italian language. I'd like to have an answer. Thanks

  • Yes, we welcome translators. You may want to talk to the staff at Wikia about starting an Italian version of Wookieepedia. Also, if you copy articles straight from Wookieepedia to translate them, please give credit where it is due. Thank you! —Xwing328(Talk) 16:48, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Welcome Negoziator. Everything on Wookieepedia is under the GFDL, which I encourage you to read. From my understanding, that means you can translate the articles for an Italian Wookieepedia. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 16:48, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi, it's me again. How I can talk with the staff at wikia about the project? Thanks --The Negoziator 19:29, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi, Wikia staff here. An Italian Wookieepedia sounds great! But you have to be sure that you will have time to work on it, and it shouldn't just be a translation... it's better to make it an original work. Although of course translations can be a part of that. Do you have anyone that can help you? Is there a big fan-base for Star Wars in Italian? These are also things to consider before going ahead. The more help you can start with, the better the chance of success! -- Sannse 19:07, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

I thought that there were other people that can help me in this community, i don't have time to do all the work. I ment to translate few articles, not the whole wookieepedia, if someone start this project I'll join it with pleasure. Anyway I'll try to contact other people that can be interested in the project. Thank you all. --The Negoziator 21:13, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Well, I doubt most of us here speak enough Italian to really be of any sort of help on such a project, beyond providing moral support. It will really depend on you and other Italian Star Wars fans to make such a project work. jSarek 22:29, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
