Translation of the week

Translation of the week here on Meta-Wiki is a project to add articles to Wikipedias where they do not exist by translating them.

Wikispelling

Contrarily to what we translators may think ;-), things should not always be translated. That is why Wikispelling was created, in order to avoid misspelling of proper nouns and local names. Wikispelling is a trans-wiki and multilingual project. Please help by checking the translation in your own language of commit messages at Wikispelling. And feel free to participate!

Capitalization of Wiktionary pages

Languages have different rules regarding capitalization. For example, in English, the month names and most words of work titles are always capitalized, but in French they are not. Most Wiktionary projects differentiate nowadays between capitalized letters and small letters. Wiktionary needs to know what rules each language has regarding capitalization. Please help to complete the table of capitalization!
