Commons:Preparing a page for translation
Here are the basic steps that help you creating a translatable page that can use the benefits of the translate extension:
Really, do: in all likelihood, that's where the information you are looking for is waiting for you.
- The volume of existing translations.
- The status of the existing translations (outdated, current)
- The page length and structure

Exemple, you have to move it to
Example/frto ensure the page history, which also serves for the attribution requirement of the Creative Commons License, all texts at Commons are licensed under, is merged. If you do not move it, the sub-pages created by the Extension (as soon as a translation to one language was started) must be deleted and the page where the translation was copied from must be moved there (both moving to and deleting a sub-page require temporary unmarking a page from translation). After moving, the deleted revisions can be restored (History merge)
Mark the page for translation (you must be a translation admin for doing so). Botname will now overwrite all existing translations with the source version. So hurry to complete the next step.)
