Other Wikis Edit
If you wish to create another language version of the wiki please make sure to use the following format of "xx.edain.wikia.com" where "xx" is the language in which you wish the version to be in. E.g. fr.edain.wikia.com for french, es.edain.wikia.com for the spanish and so on. Below are listed the ongoing wikis, keep in mind that they are not a direct translation and therefore may differ in format or information provided.
German Wiki: The German Wiki was the initial project of an Edain Mod Wiki which then sprouted the idea of an English Edain Mod Wiki. Obviously from this point on the idea would be to translate it into as many languages as possible. However as far as the mod goes, only german and english are official, although there is an unofficial patch for a french translation.
French Wiki: The French wiki is an ongoing, very recent, looking to expand further the barriers of language by giving the french-speaking players a wiki to go along with the unofficial translation. You can download the unofficial translation here.To change the language simply replace the englishpatch201.big with the one downloaded. Best to make a backup since the only way to download the english patch is through reinstalling the mod.
