The request policy applies to the Translate: (translation) and Correct: (correction) namespaces, especially on Translate:Requests and Correct:Requests. For international spotlight requests (English requests here), see the rules that are written on Spotlight:Requests.

Rules[edit source]

  • Follow the general rules.
  • Follow the instructions as they are written on the top of the request pages.
  • Request limitations
    • Maximum number of links per request: 3. Exceptions:
      • If one requested item is several printed pages: 1
      • If you are posting sentences or short paragraphs, you can add up to ten.
    • You can have multiple requests running, but only create 1/day (2 for Brigadiers, no limit for Staff).
    • Max number of requested languages - translations only: 10 (20 for Brigadiers, no limit for Staff).
    • Wikia interface translations may be requested only by Fandom Staff and Helpers.
    • You cannot add/change the languages or items of the request after it has already been worked on.
    • We do not reverse-translate (translate things back into their source language).
  • Wiki limitations
    • The wiki must exist and be located on Fandom; Wikipedias and other external wikis may be done but as a personal initiative of the Brigadiers.
    • The wiki which the request is made for, must be at least 30 days old (60 days if founder = requester)
    • If the translation is not for a wiki but for a Fandom user, you must list a Wikia wiki where the text is currently or will be displayed on.
  • When requesting individual users and not on request pages:
    • Please make note that they can decline/refuse, even when they have put themselves as available U-Available.png in our memberlist. Do not push people to do your request.
    • You still have to follow these request guidelines, do not use this project to long-term engage Brigadiers in your own project.
  • For all of the above applies that you may not ask others to create a request to circumvent these rules or limitations.
