The wiki needs to be ready for translation by May 1st, so help is needed. We've compiled a list of tasks that need to be done, and a list of pages that are to be translated.

At the end of this page there's also a section showing the list of pages to be translated, and who has looked through each page (beyond the wiki administrators) to look for work needed. If you'd like to help, please check out one or both sections.


In order for the wiki to be ready for translation on May 1st, a number of tasks should be done.

Everything with "high" priority is imperative, while "medium" and "low" would be nice but aren't as important.

Anything in "none" are tasks that'd be nice to do at some point, but which are not relevant for translation of the wiki. These tasks should not be done until after translation has started.

If working on a task, please add "Claimed by <username> — " to the start of it and move to the bottom of the list so as to ensure time isn't wasted on conflicting edits. Remove the claim and cross the task out when done.

High priority

  • Verify content on Air warfare, answer questions on page, expand air superiority and missions information
  • Expand Logistics with a section on convoys, and the Logistics UI.

  • Claimed by Dunbal — Expand naval warfare with info on naval combat, and more detailed info about the naval missions
  • Claimed by Ragingrondo12 — Expand government with info on country leaders, national spirits, elections, etc (should add more detail to this task)
  • Claimed by Ragingrondo12 — Expand ideology with all effects of each ideology, and info on how the ideological makeup of a country can be affected

  • Claimed by Tamer - Expand Diplomacy - Describe all diplomatic actions, add preamble to page

  • Cleanup Battle plan - Bring into line with Project:Style, add links and capitalisation

Low priority

  • Update volunteers and expeditionary forces to be in 3rd person rather than using "you/your"
  • Minor copy edit of style on Equipment - Bring into line with Project:Style

No priority

These tasks are irrelevant to translation of the wikis, but would be useful to have done before the release of the game.


You can add new tasks here if you see something that's missing or otherwise sub-par.

  • Hotkeys is partially done. It may need some editing or additions. It also needs linking on the front page once complete.

Page review

Below is a list of all pages considered relevant to the translation efforts and a column for noting who has looked through the page. To help ensure that missing or sub-par content is spotted, we urge anyone who has the time, especially if they feel they know a topic well, to look through one or more pages on the list, write up any tasks (if any) that need to be done that aren't already listed (add them to "unsorted), and note down their username in the review column. This should ensure that every page gets looked over by at least one extra set of eyes.

Looking through pages that haven't been looked through is of course the most useful, but even looking through one that's already been looked through can be useful, especially if it is a topic you know well!

If you feel something important is missing from this list, add it in the "page suggestions" section below.
