Welcome to!014:42, 10 March 2010

Hello, are you still interested in this, is there any news?

Yes I am still interested in this. We have successfully started a Wikimedia Labs project for SignWriting. Our current project is the American Sign Language Wikipedia at

We are about to start translating the user interface for MediaWiki. We plan on using the data format called Formal SignWriting (FSW): a lite ASCII markup. This is well documented and follows Sematic Versioning (SemVer) for compatibility.

The other alternative is Character SignWriting (CSW): a Unicode PUA solution. This encoding is useful, but not meant for data storage.

The translations that we enter will not be useful without the correct plugin and the correct skin. This is a work in progress. We do not have all of the answers yet, but the data format is solid.

I have moved Translating:SWIS to User:Slevinski/SWIS. Only supported projects should be in the Translating namespace. I will reply to your support question.

Hi Slevinski. Welcome to! You can now start translating. You should also check the portal for your language, the link is in the sidebar. Other useful pages are linked in the menu that comes with this message.

Your translations are transferred to the standard product every few days or every few weeks depending on the product. Please notice that it may take longer before you see your translation in the actual product. It can be just a few days before they appear on Wikipedia, but a few months can pass between each new release of FreeCol.

We wish you a productive and pleasant stay. Please leave any questions on Support. Cheers!
