The User Experience Team and others Wikimedians are currently in Phase III and are getting ready to roll-out the default interface called "Vector" along with other usability improvements to Japanese, Spanish, German, French, Russian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, and Dutch Wikipedias.

Note: PR = pre-release and PO = post-release.

Phase I Deployment

Phase II Deployment

Phase III Deployment

Phase IV Deployment

/Phase IV projects
  • Wikipedias with over 80% of the interface localized, target date (not finalized): June 30, 2010.
  • The deadline for the Translation and Bug help CentralNotice (as it is going live on this date) is on June 21, 2010.
  • If you create a localized feedback page, please direct English language feedback to m:2010 Wikimedia design and feature change/Feedback, and help us to translate or summarize feedback in your language.
  • If you have any questions regarding the translation process or need help, please contact Az1568 (az1568atts.wikimedia.org) or any member of the Usability Initiative.

Phase V Deployment


  1. 1.0 1.1 It's important that these default changes are widely announced on the Foundation blog, local village pumps, local news mediums, chapter blogs/press releases, social media outlets, and many other places. Please list the announcement venues here.
  2. 2.0 2.1 To be enabled on June 6 (72 hours before the switch).
  3. 3.0 3.1 CentralNotice links to this page, so this page must also be enabled by June 6.
  4. 4.0 4.1 "User Experience Ambassadors" – The collaboration with the translation community is crucial to make sure that support materials, such as announcements, FAQ, feedback page, site notice, and OTRS templates, are available in local languages, but it is also important that there are group of folks from the each language community who can make sure that announcements are reaching to the language community and the feedback is escalated back to the user experience team before and after the release. These advocates will be "user experience ambassadors" who will help coordinate the translation of support materials in the local language, help communicate information about "the switch", and help escalate feedback back to the Usability team. If you're interested in volunteering, see the talk page!
