Setting up a category?[edit source]

Hello David,

you may remember that three years ago I ran a class on editing Internet projects using Wikiversity as a part of the regular class offered to students at the Institute of English and American studies at Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland. You helped me set an umbrella category for these propects at: Editing Internet Texts

The coming semester (begining on March 1st) I will teach a class on "Web Translation Projects", which will focus on various theoretical and practical aspects of translation and which I would like my students to carry out using Wiki tools and share at Wikiversity. Would it be a good idea to set up another category (eg. Internet Translation Projects) that would aggregate particular projects or should we use the existing category (Editing Internet Texts - - the category involved non-translation projects too)? In either case I would appreciate your guidance on how the students should proceed when setting up their Wikiversity pages/projects so that they are a part of that category.

Thank you for your help, it's nice to be back in Wikiversity :-) --Iszmael (discusscontribs) 08:43, 15 February 2021 (UTC)

@Iszmael: It's really up to you. If these are different courses you teach, they should probably be different learning projects here at Wikiversity. We can copy Editing Internet Texts and create a separate Web Translation Projects if that works for you.
Also, see Federal Writers' Project – Life Histories/2021/Spring/105i/Section 22 for an example of how an input box can be used to help students create their pages as subpages of the course learning project rather than accidentally creating them elsewhere.
Finally, note that it is possible to have translations in other languages using the {{Translations}} template. The English page is the main page, and it can have translations in other languages as subpages. If you need any help setting this up, please let me know. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 14:45, 15 February 2021 (UTC)

Thank you @Dave Braunschweig for the suggestions - yes, creating a separate Web Translation Projects would be ideal. I'll have a look at Federal Writers' Project – Life Histories/2021/Spring/105i/Section 22 and let the students know how to proceed. As far as the translation into other languages is concerned, I'll think about it, consult the students and get back to you. --Iszmael (discusscontribs) 17:26, 15 February 2021 (UTC)

I would appreciate if you set up an umbrella category Web Translation Projects for my students and create an input box to make sure all my students stay within this category. The class starts on the coming Monday and they will create their pages in the second part of March, when they have a better grasp on Wiki philosophy and editing skills. Thank you for you help.
