[edit] Editing an article

We welcome you as an author in the transnational Gender-Diversity Wiki

When you wish to contribute something to the knowldge base, please remember that this is more than just a database, or a collection of lists with links and downloads. You can do that in the "Knowledge transfer" section, but in other areas ot the Wiki we would like to ask you to write a short text (article) about the matter of your choice. Each article should always be intelligable on its own, no matter from where you are directed to it (through links in the system). It can be just a complete short text or an abstract of a much longer or complex document or source of information.

[edit] Language

To ensure a maximum of user access the main language of this wiki is English. Headlines and navigation and main articles are presented in English. Individual articles and uploaded documents can be written in any chosen language, as long as the index links (which are automatically the names of the created article pages) and the headline of the article are in English so that everybody has a chance of knowing what's in this system.

After creating the index link or when offering a file download or when listing external links please always indicate the language unless it's English. Use the language shorts from the list below.
