What is this?Edit

This a Wikiproject dealing with articles related to Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Its founding was inspired by the 2005 Frankfurt Wikimania [1] and the printing of a Wikireader (Wikipedia:WikiReader/Frankfurt) of Frankfurt articles, it aims to further advance the translation of the German Wikipedia articles related to Frankfurt.

Like the other major German-language city translation project, Wikipedia:WikiProject Vienna, if it advances to a certain level it can become a proper member of Wikipedia:WikiProject Cities.

How can I help?Edit

Below is the list of articles related to Frankfurt. You can do any or all of the following:

  • Add any articles that you think need to be translated. Buildings, places, transport, business, people, whatever...
  • Check that links are correct. The German names may not be appropriate, for example because they are needlessly disambiguating things that have no alternatives on the English Wikipedia, or perhaps because they need disambiguations for things that do. Move pages around if necessary.
  • Put {{WikiProject Germany|Frankfurt=yes}} at the top of talk page of the article, if it's not already there. This will help others find this page. Tagged discussion pages are collected in Category:WikiProject Frankfurt articles
  • Translate it! You don't have to get it right or complete instantly, just put in any amount of work you feel comfortable with. Please do translate section headers first, so other people will know what is and isn't done, and our readers won't see articles that are suddenly cut off.
  • Don't forget to add a transwiki link back to the German Wikipedia, with [[de:Article name]].
  • Collect written or translated articles in Category:Frankfurt or one of its daughters.

City organizationEdit

  • We still have to decide on the naming of the various city divisions, Stadtteile, Ortsbezirke, Stadtbezirke, etc. The problem is that we can't just call them all city districts; we might have to use the German names and then have separate pages explaining what they mean in this context. The Vienna project has done something similar.
