wikiHow:Chinese wikiHow Project

wikiHow's long term vision is to make a free how-to manual available to everyone on earth. To do this, we need to build wikiHow in multiple languages. The method we use to do this is described in the Language Version Process. Right now the Chinese language is in the "project phase" where we try to sign up enough dedicated volunteers to build a live wikiHow. Language Version Process

EditWhat We Need

  • At least one volunteer who wants to be the dedicated go-between for the English and Chinese wikiHow communities. This person should be an editor of the English wikiHow who has some familiarity with way wikiHow works. Being a go-between can involve a significant time commitment so only volunteer if you truly want the job.
  • Several other speakers of the Chinese language that plan to contribute to the new wikiHow.
  • A few volunteers who will help translate the language file from English to Chinese .
  • A few volunteers to create some basic documentation pages in the Chinese wikiHow so new editors know how to get started. Important pages like the Writer's Guide, About wikiHow need to be translated.

EditBuild a Team of Volunteers

We need to have a team of volunteers who are plan to contribute to a wikiHow in this language if we build it.

EditNext Steps

Once we have enough people and at least one go-between who is also a regular editor on the English wikiHow we will be able to proceed. To accelerate this process you might consider trying to recruit new members. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Jack at wiki@wikiHow.com.
