Hi Guys, I am new on this wiki and would like to translate some articles to my native language (German). Unfortunately, there's no help page on translation where I can get enough Information about how to do that (How to link it to the english article, translating templates etc.) Could someone either send me a PM on the matter or write a help page about it?

To link wikis (they must be on Wikia, and interwikis should be made by Wikia admins, I think the wikis are linked already), put [[en:Article in English]] on German article and [[de:Artikel in Deutsch]] on English article. To translate template, just copy its code to German wiki and translate it. SiPlus 17:25, March 1, 2011 (UTC)
But what about pictures and other media? Or is there a way to "share" files between wikis without having to download them from overwiki and afterwards having to upload them to valvewiki? RAGe 20:45, March 1, 2011 (UTC)
It's not possible to put image using [[w:c:WIKINAME:File:FILENAME]], so, you have to move every file. Or request Wikia to do this. SiPlus 06:14, March 2, 2011 (UTC)
Crappy, but OK. Thanks for the help. RAGe 14:44, March 2, 2011 (UTC)
Ask Wikia staff, maybe they will link images with this wiki, like they did with Fallout wiki. SiPlus 11:11, March 5, 2011 (UTC)
