Hiya.

I would first like to clarify that I do not edit much, so I have little knowledge of how the wikia is run. So I apologise if I am in the wrong section to post this type of topic or anything.

I would quickly like to ask if it is against this wiki's rules if we use its pages for the same wiki in a different language (tr.runescape). Basically I'm asking if I am allowed to copy an article of this wiki, translate it into Turkish and then use it for the wiki's turkish equivalent.

Kind regards,

I'm certain that there is no rule against that. It's user-updated, all the info comes from users, it's all inside wikia and there is no reason you shouldn't be able to. Go straight ahead. - [Pharos] 12:04, August 11, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - There is no legal issue in copying it, as our information is released freely. And seeing as you are translating it, it isn't rude either. I think we'd actually encourage it as it is expanding the available languages of our great wiki! Feel free. But, I don't recommend using an auto-translator if that is what you are doing. They don't structure sentences properly; manual human translation is the way to go. Smile Chicken7 >talk 12:36, August 11, 2010 (UTC)

Go ahead, more languages = more users; but I agreed with what chicken said. Not only do auto-translators put the words in the wrong order, they sometimes get the wrong words. Also incorrect spelling and grammar on the English pages will completely ruin the Turkish pages if you use an auto-translator. Do not even start doing this if you don't know fluent Turkish. If you do, go ahead. Rune hatchet.png The Gedge Tinderbox.png 12:44, August 11, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your help.

Just to clarify that I'm not using any translators. Don't worry :) I'm Turkish myself.
