I've posted about this on the Wikitech Ambassadors mailing list, as well as
many local Village Pumps, but I wanted to share that as of now the
"GettingStarted" extension is on 28 Wikipedias other than English.
We still have some cleanup work to do, and definitely want to eventually
expand to all language versions of Wikipedia. There may also be some
non-Wikipedia projects which might find it useful.
A big thanks to any of you who help translate MediaWiki on translatewiki.net
:-) We'll be monitoring the rollout of the feature in the coming weeks and
will share our data analysis about use of the feature in non-English
2. The full list is: astwiki, bswiki, cawiki, dawiki, dewiki, elwiki,
eswiki, fawiki, frwiki, fowiki, glwiki, hewiki, huwiki, iswiki, itwiki,
kowiki, lbwiki, mkwiki, mlwiki, nlwiki, plwiki, ptwiki, ruwiki, simplewiki,
svwiki, viwiki, ukwiki, and zhwiki
3. Rendering of the UI in some longer translations could use work
especially. See https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=61055
