(*curious*) What's the name of the series?

12th Jun, 2019 05:01:02 AM

"Oko Jelenia"(Deer's Eye) a polish sci-fi series by Andrzej Pilipiuk, I saw that Jakub Wędrowycz(Pilipiuk's other series I adore) is already featured here so I decided to add Oko Jelenia as well.

Mmmm, I can't seem to find an English translation, so the page belongs at Literature.Oko Jelenia or Literature.Droga Do Nidaros. I notice you don't have many edits, so you might wish to use Sandbox.Oko Jelenia to start with, so that you can build the page up more gradually rather than trying to have it finished right from the start. If you'd like help, the Trope Launch Pad can give advice (since Work Pages Are A Free Launch, you don't need to care about the hats/bombs, but feedback can improve your example context).

Hmm, wouldn't Literature.Deers Eye be better (+ custom title)? Even if there is no official English translation, it's in use (the English page for the writer on the other wiki). It would be more reader-friendly to our wiki readers.

^^ The translation policy says to use the official title (romanized if needed), never unofficial translations. Creating it at Literature.Deers Eye would violate that policy.

^ Thanks. Is there a link to an administrivia page with this policy? I'd like to check it out. My google fu is failing me. (The only rule I found is on the "how to create a work's page" page that says nothing so strict ["However, if the work doesn't have an officially-translated English title, you can use the non-English title for the main page and make the English translation into a redirect instead."])

Exactly; Literature.Deers Eye can be a redirect to Literature.Oko Jelenia, but it cannot be the primary article. The primary article must use an official name, whether it be an official English name or an official Non-English name (preference given to official English if possible).

12th Jun, 2019 12:44:26 PM

^ Again: Must? The page says can.

12th Jun, 2019 12:54:35 PM

It says you can make an English-language redirect. The redirect is optional.

The must comes from this: "Note that we require usage of the official name of the work," and an unofficial translation is not the official name of the work.
