Just curious how folks see this evolving. Commons chose multilingual. It was natural for the WPs to choose separate, but in our case a date is a date.

Of course with information stored in info pages, it would be possible to keep the different language genealogy wikias in synq, through use of the shared unique identifiers. Mirroring of info pages would be performed by a bot.

You see what this means? If you translate just the table column titles and headings, you can re-use all the data we inputed for an english language article and produce an usable version in all the major languages.

Just curious how folks see this evolving. Commons chose multilingual. It was natural for the WPs to choose separate, but in our case a date is a date.

Of course with information stored in info pages, it would be possible to keep the different language genealogy wikias in synch, through use of the shared unique identifiers. Mirroring of info pages would be performed by a bot.


Separate doesn't make a whole lot of sense in many respects though. Think of it- all the images would have to be replicated unless wikia changes current practice. ~ Phlox 18:47, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Info pages and Multilingual Genealogy site

Note that info pages make "fill in the blank" minimalist articles very easy. For example, Adela of Normandy (c1062) has a huge amount of information, but the article is a TOTAL boilerplate. This has implications for Skinning a new language.

{{tabs person}}
{{Showinfo person}}

You see what this means? If you translate just the table column titles and headings, you can re-use all the data we inputed for an English language article and produce an usable version in all the major languages.
