But the question is about exisitng Wikitravel languages. For example
there is hebrew Wikitravel but there is no hebrew Wikivoyage.


Actually the hebrew version of wikitravel has only 102 articiles but
for example Polish:


has 2585, although actually is in fact half-dead and going through the
incubator-language committee process will rather discourage the tiny
community of Polish wikitravel to switch to vikivoyage, so the effect
will be that Polish wikivoage won't appear in predictable future. I
guess the same will be with other mid-size wikitravel language
versions of which there are a couple around...

Hope I am wrong anyway :-)
