All languages[edit]

This page is intended to eventually contain a list of all languages on Wikisource, locally and on sub-domains. A few reasons to develop this are:

  • to identify where local pages here need to be migrated to a sub-domain.
  • to determine where our local main pages are useless, as no pages in that language exist.
  • to direct people to the right sub-domain which is looking after similar languages.

What do you exact mean with the column Size? If it means the number of articles in the language category so we could your the function {{PAGESINCATEGORY:Category}} like e.g. for Bahasa Melayu = 129. -jkb- 14:50, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
Well done, this is very useful. I'd also like to see which of those languages are supported by MediaWiki and which of the unsupported ones are enabled for translation at translatewiki.net. I'm not sure how to do this automatically though.
Also, should we list regional languages with a language code which are hosted within a subdomain? The Italian Wikisource hosts some: it:Categoria:Testi in altre lingue‎.
We should have something like a Special:SiteMatrix augmented by all languages of Wikisource documents, to show that Wikimedia is more than the 288 Wikipedia languages. --Nemo 06:24, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Language codes[edit]

This is very useful for organizing scattered material here in so many smaller languages.

I suggest, however, that you add language codes and not just make do with language names, to prevent any possible confusion and make things clearer. Dovi 10:14, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Gu, Be, Pl[edit]

All have their own domain (gu:, be:, and pl:). Bennylin (talk) 12:16, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

in addition: mr:, and nl:. Bennylin (talk) 12:32, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Category:Беларуская (Belarusian) still has a lot of content in it. It looks like this content has already been imported into be: (I don't know this for sure, but three arbitrarily chosen pages from the main category existed on the remote wiki, anyway). Should the category be emptied before the entry is removed from the table? Or is there another list somewhere of content that should be deleted after being successfully transwikied? Or has the contents of the category in fact not been completely transwikied, as is the case with Category:Polski? - dcljr (talk) 02:36, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Counting also pages inside subcategories[edit]

Is it possible to develop the page count through the subcategories? Thanks.--CuornoRusso (talk) 01:03, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
