On the Thai wikipedia, pages in the namespace วิกิพีเดีย (the Thai spelling of
Wikipedia) show in the New Pages list, and probably are also included in the
Your problem is that you can't just invent namespaces (just putting ":" in the
name is not enough), you have to actually translate them, all these วิกิพีเดีย:
pages are actually in the main namespace.
so, how to "actually translate" it ?
does it in http://th.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Allmessages ?
LanguageTh.php has some but not all namespaces translated, they cannot be
translated using Special:Allmessages

Patch for namespace translations
I tried to translate almost namespaces.
Have you asked for example the Thai language project communities that these are
the correct translations. Changing namespaces is a messy process and we would
like get them right at the first time. Also, you are not supposed to remove
$wgMetanamespace. If that is not possible, because it has to change too, report
back so we can do it properly.
Thai namespace voting is here
As far as I can see, the process is already finished. (12 for. 0 against. 1
So the only thing we have to do now is prepare a patch.
short cut to our Cafe / discussion room is

Patch for namespace translation
The patch is ready.
These namespaces are approved by the community as Arthit indicated.
And we also request for translating these project names into Thai so all
namespaces will be localized.
Wikibooks = 'วิกิตำรา'
Wiktionary = 'วิกิพจนานุกรม'
Wikiquote = 'วิกิคำคม'
I forget that Wikipedia project name is still in English, it is also requested
Wikipedia = 'วิกิพีเดีย'
test links are available at:
best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
We are still looking forward to this issue.
Do we have to wait for the new namespace manager developing in branch 1.6?
Lot's of existing links would probably stop working with that patch.
