Please note that we try to keep Wikispecies as language neutral as possible. There is however a Translation extension installed on Wikispecies, and you are welcome to help translate the help and guideline pages.
All pages within the following namespaces are available:
- Wikispecies: (Wikispecies)
- Help: (Help)
- MediaWiki: (MediaWiki)
- Template: (Template)

Help: and not
