Page linking[edit]

The technique that I used was linking the translated page to the english link. Like so: [.[Horses|Chevaux]]. (The dot is to avoid the link) The problem is that the new page is in english, not the language translated.

Is this what we're supposed to do? Or do we create a new page? Thanks The preceding unsigned comment was added by HelpIsOnTheWay (talk • contribs) 29. Okt. 2015, 18:26:03‎ (UTC)

Hi! This wiki grew unfortunately without real language support. Therefore a language-template was added to the top of every page, which shows up links to every translation available. This translations are common pages, which have a language template, too. Of course, this is not the most comfortable way, but this is how it is.
E.g. a link to the article Lit should not be [[Bed|Lit]], because there already exists a french page named Lit (even if it not exists, it would be hardly maintainable later on). When you take a look at the english origin page Bed, you can see that there is an entry for a french translation. You can see that the french flag is set in the language template. So all links in french articles should link to Lit and not to Bed. If no page exists, you can create one by copying the origin article and translate it. But please beware all possible links (e.g. in the footer templates). If you have further questions, let me know. --TiRARdisk 20:27, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

So does this mean that for every translation, we add an extra page?
Instead of linking [[Bed|Lit]], we create two new pages: bed and lit, unless those pages exist already.
If the translation of Bread to Brot happens, we add the new page brot and all german links go to that entry not to the english page.

Yes, unfortunately we have to use new pages for every translation. And e.g. german pages only link to german and french only link to french pages and so on. Except the language template on top of every page; there are all links to every translation of the english origin. --TiRARdisk 13:14, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
