I'm happy to report that the donation pages and forms for de, en, fr, it, ja,
and most recently nl are all translated!

See http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Fundraising and
http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Donazioni for examples.

But in order to maximize donations for our next fund drive (to be held sometime
in early to mid February; exact days TBA) we need more translations.

Below is a table of those that still need some work:

 lang    page    Form-xx   Help-xx  Onetime-xx  Option-xx
 ar      yes     no        no       no          no
 cs      yes     no        no       no          no
 es      yes     no        no       no          no
 fi      yes     no        no       no          no
 he      yes     no        no       no          no
 ko      yes     no        no       no          no
 pl      yes     no        no       no          no
 pt      yes     yes       no       no          no
 sv      yes     no        no       no          no
 zh      yes     no        no       no          no

KEY (full instructions are on the linked pages)

*page (actual donation page | Extremely important)

*Form-xx (used to translate donation forms | Very important)

*Help-xx (help for donors)

*Onetime-xx (a message about one time donations)

*Option-xx (used for navigation between forms)

I'd also like to see translations for all languages for which there are 10,000+
Wikipedia articles. Here is a list of those that so far do not have anything

bg, ca, da, eo, no, ro, ru, and uk

Of course, all other translations are also welcome and will be posted to the
foundation wiki.


One last thing. I've noticed that there is no donation link in the side bar for
for many non-Wikipedia wikis and for some Wikipedias. If you are an admin in
any of these wikis *and* a version of the donation page is already on the
Foundation wiki in your language, then please do this:

Edit [[MediaWiki:Sitesupport-url]] and replace '{{SITENAME}}:Site_support' with
'Wikimedia:donate' with 'donate' being the name of the donation page in your
language on the foundation wiki (Spenden, Fundraising, Faites un don, ... etc).

Edit [[MediaWiki:Sitesupport]] and replace the '-' with the word 'Donations'
(or its closest equivalent) translated into your language.

That's it. :)
