Main Pages

Memory Alpha is an international project currently consisting of nineteen languages. You can help the other editions in the following ways.

Initial translation

The minimum pages that need to be translated for any language edition are listed on start a new edition in another language. However, this is not always done or the founder of the edition stops there. In order to have a good working wiki all pages from the namespaces Memory Alpha and MA Help should eventually exist in the other language.

If you find a page that has not been translated in the other edition you can tag the page here in the English language wiki with {{international needs translation}} to make others aware of this.


The Babel project is an attempt to organize Archivists by language in order to find potential contributors for other languages. This will be useful only if the majority of archivists make use of the language user boxes, so users are strongly encouraged to utilize this feature.

Interwiki links

Interwiki links are simple tools to create links into the different languages. They are added to the end of any article and build the most effective international connectivity. If you find a matching article in another language, simply add the interwiki link to both pages. Later, a bot will add further links once other connections are detected.

Internationalization projects

The internationalization project is a space to help create a new language edition of the Memory Alpha wiki. The project page will be for translating the basic six pages required to start a new edition (Main, Copyrights, Introduction, How To Edit, How to Start, and FAQ). Subsequently it will be used for discussion on new articles and recruiting member assistance.
