Eventually, Citizendium will be available in other languages. We'd like to see what languages we already have among our authors and editors, perhaps with a view to prioritising these. If you think you could write and edit in another language, then add to the lists below.

  • Please sign your name below by using # (to number your name) and three tildes (#~~~), under as many languages as you feel you can use to a similar standard or greater than your present ability in English.
  • Indicate whether you are a native or non-native speaker of the language(s).
  • Please try to be specific; e.g. writing Mandarin or Cantonese is more helpful than just Chinese. At the same time, don't be too specific; e.g. Spanish rather than Mexican Spanish is preferable.
  • You can add extra columns for more languages. The languages are currently sorted alphabetically; when adding an additional language, please add it to the end and it will eventually be sorted into the rest.
  • Don't add 'English', obviously. :-)

Note: this is not a vote on what languages to include. It is merely a way of finding out what languages we know, which may inform later decision-making about how to proceed.

Internationalisation proposal

There are currently two proposals regarding internationalisation. Please see and add to the discussion at:
