We have a beautiful page What is "meta" with a good description about it. However, it might be useful to have it translated so its concept is understandable by everybody.

Could this happen?

  • Muy buena la traducción. Donde dice "hecha un vistazo", pienso que debería ser "echa un vistazo". Pero en todo caso, es mucho mejor de lo que esperaba. Commented May 9, 2016 at 13:04
  • @WalterMitty ¡ya tenemos la traducción! Está en What's meta.

Here's a website that introduces the concept of meta discussions, in Spanish. It's about Wikimedia rather than Wikipedia, but it's related.


If you scroll down to page 9, you'll see a brief paragraph about meta discussions. It's highly possible that some of the terms are geek speak rendered in Spanish, rather than "real Spanish".

  • Thanks for the answer and this interesting information. Note, however, I am asking if the current meta description could be translated to Spanish, so a mere translation is enough. But it is a good point your link may provide some words to be used during the translation.

    That was the idea. Someone intending to translate the page into Spanish might get some benefit by reading this article first. I guess I should have made that clear. Commented Oct 22, 2015 at 12:42

Tras comentarlo con los moderadores Jon Ericson y Tim Post, el primero ha tenido la amabilidad de añadir la sección ¿Qué es meta y cómo funciona? que se tradujo para el sitio Spanish Stack Overflow.

Así, ahora disponemos de las dos versiones: en castellano y en inglés. Podéis verlo en:

What is "meta"? How does it work?

Desde aquí, ¡gracias a ambos!
