Yes. Every now and then I feel very patriotic and update some Afrikaans
articles in Wikipedia or FPC/Lazarus Wiki. :)

Any help is much appreciated. All I ask, is that for every Afrikaans page
you create, please add the Afrikaans category to the bottom of such pages.
That way we can easily find a listing of Afrikaans translated pages.

The wiki text you need to add is:


1)  Use the '/af' suffix for Afrikaans pages. So it's the English URL +
'/af' suffix.

2)  To add the Afrikaans listing to the languages list (that appears at the
top of each page, you need to edit the language bar template for that page.

Create the afrikaans wiki page:

Then add the Afrikaans link to the language bar:

3)  Remember the Afrikaans category in the article wiki page.

To see a listing of existing Afrikaans wiki pages in FPC Wiki, go to the
following URL and scroll to the index at the bottom of that page. There is
a whopping 2 pages translated so far. ;-)
