When does a wiki become useful?

For now, we consented that a wiki is considered useful as soon as it has more than 40 articles, include an article about one country where the language is spoken and articles about some major cities.

All languages that don't meet these criteria will be listed under the "baby wikis" section on the Start Page. They are either very new or not active. If you speak the language and want to make it useful, just start working on it right now ;) Ask us for admin rights, we'll be happy to give them to anyone who can help.

Translations of own projects

We are managing translations of our own projects (such as maps) with GlotPress. If you want to help, contact us maps (ät) hitchwiki.org or Talk Page), so we can give you an account. It's not limited to languages listed there, we are happy to add as many as possible. If your language is already there, you can still help. It's always helpful to work with 3-5 people on a language or have someone for proof-reading. Native English speakers are also welcome to proof-read a bit, as none of us speaks English native.
