We already do in some cases. There's already a French and German Wiki in which some articles have language links at the side. We were looking into maybe putting other languages eg. Spanish and Polish in but that only depends on whether people who speak them are willing to keep working on it.

In I think one article, I put a table for alternative names for a game title [even I hadn't been entirely sure about translations here]. These should only be used if there are lots of alternative titles in different languages.

Ok I said it wrong, are there any pages translated in Spanish? I actually never found out if there were.

I'm pretty sure there's a Spanish wiki, yes. Probably doesn't have a lot of articles though…

Since this discussion is now about the different languages covered by RayWiki, I'll take the opportunity to announce that we launched a Russian version of RayWiki last night. Special thanks to Rubber for his invaluable help. :bigup:

Yay!
Люмы (иногда Лумы, или Цвета, англ: Lums)
So the pronunciation nonsense is even captured in spelling there. :fou:

Is this about the "Looms"? :fou:

EDIT: Rubber is doing a great job on it. I can't understand Russian, but I can see that he has contributed a lot to it. :D

I have never thought Globox and Steo shared the exact traits after all until now.

Yep. Looks like it can be "Lumes" or "Looms", although not "Lums". :P

As if it weren't complicated enough! From what I understand, it looks like Лум was used in Rayman 2, and that they later switched to Люм. Same with Тинси and Малютка, it seems.

I must thank Matyuv and Illegal for this, they were a great help and there wouldn't be a Russian wiki without them. 🤗
