Translation instructions

See also: Help:Language translation, Help:Translation switching

To translate the Main Page into a different language:

  1. Copy the contents of the current English Main Page and paste it into the language subpage (e.g. for French it is Main Page/fr)
  2. Then translate all of the English parts into your own language.
  3. Many other templates (e.g. the {{FeaturedArticle}} template) are used in this layout and require translations to be added to them directly. See Category:Main Page for most of them. Follow the individual instructions on each page to translate these templates.

If the English Main Page is missing a parameter you need, there is a full list in this box.



It's so shiny, I would miss the amount of colour though! -- Pilk (talk) 10:50, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Colours coming soon, I'm structuring it first so then it's easier to style through CSS. seb26 [talk] 10:58, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Proper todo

  • Index
    • Needs proper links
    • Need to use better images
  • Team Fortress Wiki links
  • What to do about blank gaps.

Could you make the class images a touch smaller? (70px maybe?) They're going off the side of my screen. -Shine () 06:59, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Suggestions from IRC channel:

  • New (custom) class portraits
  • Borderless freakin' tables yo
  • Country flags (Pilk said no)

Well if we're changing them, we have to make sure they're all the same shape ans size so that they appear similar across the board.  – Smashman (talk) 22:01, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
I want to keep the same framed picture style, but just have different images in the frame. seb26 [talk] 22:02, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
Oh right. I thought you wanted completely different images. Good. They're meant to be polariods. They're from in-game. I think if you're going to do those, they should have a background. Otherwise they'd look odd.  – Smashman (talk) 22:13, 2 September 2010 (UTC)


  1. Wide banner was removed from right table and new design became pretty! For better displaying Banner should be placed below Classes table.
  2. What about removing feautured article name after {{{box2-fa-title}}}, it's superfluous.

Well I put it there so that we knew what article it was, and yes that was the plan.  – Smashman (talk) 16:38, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

New suggestions

  • I recommend you putting emdash (—) after {{{box2-fa-title}}}
  • May be we can use language-specific category links for {{{welcome-link-helpout}}} via {{if lang}}?

Finnish language link to the front page?

I've started translating parts of the Wiki to Finnish and it would be nice to have a link to Main Page/fi on the front page along with the other languages. Would that be possible? Dragory 22:48, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
