[[what-are-microformats|What are microformats]]? And [[what-can-you-do-with-microformats|what can you do with them]]? See the [http://microformats.org/about/ about page] for an overview, and the [[introduction]] page for more info.  Recent [[press]], [[presentations]], [[podcasts]], and [[screencasts]] are also a good place for some background reading/listening. Frequently asked questions are answered in the [[faq]].  Want something or want to contribute?  Help with things [[to-do]].  Want to learn more in person? Check out microformats [[events]].
 
 
 
One popular definition from our [http://microformats.org/discuss/ mailing list] (see also: [[mailing-lists]]) is "simple conventions for embedding semantics in HTML to enable decentralized development." More precisely, microformats can be defined as:
 
:simple conventions
 
:for embedding semantic markup
 
::for a specific problem domain
 
:in human-readable (X)HTML/XML documents, Atom/RSS feeds, and "plain" XML
 
::that normalize existing content usage patterns
 
::using brief, descriptive class names
 
::often based on existing interoperable standards
 
:to enable decentralized development
 
::of resources, tools, and services

The first place to look for examples, code, and test cases is in the pages for each individual microformat. There are only a few cross-cutting tools and services that need to process more than one microformat. This section is intended for editors, parsers, validators, test cases, and other information relevant across multiple microformats.

== microformats wiki in other languages ==
 
 
 
You may read and edit microformats articles in many other languages:
 
 
 
* languages with over 50 articles
 
** [[Main_Page-fr|Français (French)]] {{NewMarker-fr}}
 
* languages with over 2 articles
 
** [[Main_Page-ja|日本語 (Japanese)]]
 
** [[Main_Page-es|Español (Spanish)]]
 
* languages with 2 articles
 
** [[Main_Page-de|Deutsch (German)]]
 
 
 
==== microformats translations elsewhere ====
 
These are offsite pages/sites with translations about microformats.  If you are working on one of these, please consider translating the main microformats website!
 
* [http://mikroformate.pbwiki.com/ Deutsch (German) mikroformate.pbwiki.com] {{NewMarker}}
 
 
 
=== Start a microformats wiki in another language ===
 
 
 
Don't see the language you want?  Help translate the microformats wiki into another language!
 
 
 
We're still figuring this out. 
 
 
 
For now, see the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Multilingual_coordination Wikipedia page on Multilingual coordination], and [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/How_to_start_a_new_Wikipedia How to start a new Wikipedia] for some good general tips, advice, and community conventions.
 
 
 
You may want to start with the list of [[stable-pages]], which are pages that are relatively stable, and have only minimal/editorial changes, which makes them much easier to keep in sync with the English versions, by using the [[Special:Watchlist|my watchlist]] feature (use it to watch the pages you've translated for changes).
 
 
 
Page naming: for the translated version of a page, use the same name for the page, and simply add the RFC 3066 language identifier code as a dash suffix. E.g. for the French version, [[Main_Page]] becomes [[Main_Page-fr]], and [[how-to-play]] becomes [[how-to-play-fr]].
