5.6. Moving Pages From the Old Translation Setup
The Fedora Wiki is the repository for project-related information. Some of these pages may need to be translated in order to better serve the Fedora community. This chapter will explain, step-by-step, the proper method of translating a wiki page.

5.1. Find the English Version of the Page

English is the base language for the Fedora Project wiki, so there needs to be an English version of the page you are working on. (If there isn't an English version of the page you are working on, see Section 5.1.1, “Handling Translations Without an English Version” below.)
If there is already a language template at the top of that page, click edit link on the right side of the language box and move to step 4; otherwise, continue to step 2.

5.1.1. Handling Translations Without an English Version

If the page you create doesn't have an English version, create a new page for the English version, add the {{template|autolang}} template as noted above, and then add the {{template|needs english}} template. This will flag the page for needing an English translation as well as create a base page.
