It seems that a lot of people from different Wikipedias are reading this
list, and my post is about internationalisation of Wikipedia, so I decided I
will try to bring a certain tool to your attention. It’s the
) by de:user:Flacus, a
brilliant tool which has facilitated the generation of >100.000
Interlanguage-Links within the last six month.
As you might know, there are still lots of articles in one Wikipedia which
have the same name as articles in aWikipedia of another language, but are
*not* linked by an Interlanguage-Link (e.g. en-de: ~6300 articles, sv-fr:
~2300 articles and
nl-pl ~1400 articles, as of the dumps from February 2006).
This articles have been listed for a lot of language combinations by
de:user:SirJective. But not all articles with identical names are about
the same subject, so human work is needed to decide whether an
Interwiki-Link can be automatically inserted by a bot. In order to make
this decision easy and comfortable, there is a brilliant tool called
Interwiki-Link-Checker written by de:Benutzer:Flacus.
You might want to check the FAQ at
or just try it at http://tools.wikimedia.de/~flacus/IWLC/start.php
Thanks for your time and (maybe even) help, I can just invite you to try
the tool, it's fun and you're reading (and editing) quite a lot of stuff
you wouldn't stumble upon otherwise.
If you do like the tool and want to spread the word, visit
help and new ideas are welcome.
