Ive noticed there is some pages in Spanish. i was wondering if rational wiki is available in other languages, or if there is a way/policy to make articles for other languages. 900674 (talk) 23:37, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

This has been brought up a few times before - RW doesn't have non-English versions because English is the only language that all of its current editors have in common (that sounds like a paradox, I know), but I don't think anyone would object to translating important articles into other languages.

(EC) I'm afraid Blue's Spanish project is the only one going on right now, but there is no rule against translating articles into other languages, so if you want to start something, go ahead! --Sir Onion Kneel before my vegetable might! 23:41, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, we're very relaxed about "policies"...we mostly make it up as we go. Tetronian you're clueless 23:43, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Put the title in the correct language. --Sir Onion Kneel before my vegetable might! 23:47, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
what if they have the same name 900674 (talk) 23:53, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
Just put (español) after the title: "Fred Phelps (español)", it can be changed later if required. 23:56, 6 September 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast
Oh, and put it in a category like: [[Category:Español]] too. 23:57, 6 September 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast
