Gothic translation

Hello, I heard that I cannot translate to gothic anymore from this side? If yes why, and if no how does it work really?? I want to contribute to that wikipedia. Thagka

    It's a dead language that really cannot have a user interface unless someone "invents" it. We are (or maybe I am) not interested in providing a platform for that type of frivolity. I'd rather see you contributing to a language that is alive and well, or create valuable content for a Wikimedia project.

      But there are wikipedias in old english and latin etc. I know of others that want to contribute at the gothic wikipedia from the gothic mailing list but they don't really know because of the bad condition of the main page and some other facts. Wikipedia could fulfill the function of documenting languages and their knowledge. And why can Gothic not have an user interface? What do you mean by that? I wouldn't waste my time with dealing with nonrelevant languages (btw. I am working also intensivly on the Low German WikiProducts), I would contribute to protect an old language. So, the wikipedia still exists, but there is no way to contribute on the translation of the gothic wikipedia side??

        Correct. Best contribute to the content, not to the UI, because no one is able to use it anyway. Use the interface in your native language...
