OE > NE translations of terms[adiht fruman]

For translating or learning, use this, as Wikipedia itself is not a language-learning tool. HOWEVER, I have started creating redirects leading from modern English terms, pointing to their Old English pages. For instance, in the sēcan box, go ahead and type in "steam car" — ᚹᚩᛞᛖᚾᚻᛖᛚᛗ 01:45, 9 Solmōnaþ 2009 (UTC)

Imma move the discussion to here. The special characters can be entered with the sandbox at the bottom of any edit page. Currently yogh and wynn have not yet been added. As far as the search box, some pages have non-special-character redirects that I've made, but that's alot to do, so I havent been able to do many. The Wiktionary link template does not yet exist, I'll put in a request for that. In the mean time, we could simply use this coding:
[[:ang:wiktionary:word|word]] (with "word" being whatever term you need)

Also, consider using this page. — ᚹᚩᛞᛖᚾᚻᛖᛚᛗ 02:36, 9 Solmōnaþ 2009 (UTC)
You'll have to forgive me, I'm kind of new to the whole wiki thing. I don't see a "sandbox" at the bottom of any edit page. Is these something I need to turn on for that to happen? The Wiktionary bit is a good idea, at least to link things over to the AS one. The other things is for the AS Wiktionary, I have some things I would like to discuss, like maybe making a "how to make an entry" page with Examples and a translation explaining how to do it. It might help to organise it. --Timoði Pætricus Snīðer 02:38, 9 Solmōnaþ 2009 (UTC)
Yeah the ANG wiktionary does need some TLC... (as in, more than one primary participant) but the special characters are small and blue, next to "Sundortācnu." Simply click them once, and wikipedia will insert the character you click to wherever you have your text cursor. Or you can do like I did, and simply create your own custom keyboard layout (which each major language has/uses anyway, so we should do the same!). I've got one I made with easy access to macrons, dotted-C and dotted-G, and yogh and wynn. Then I can switch to my Runic keyboard layout :) Just google "custom keyboard layout" to see if you can find any good free/easy tools to do so. Otherwise if you're not confident in doing so, there's always the Character Map (Mac: Character Palette) — ᚹᚩᛞᛖᚾᚻᛖᛚᛗ 02:45, 9 Solmōnaþ 2009 (UTC)
I got it, I had switched the Top Lang to English and the special characters only show up if you're set to Anglo-Saxon. I was gonna work my way up to that ;-). I was more or less using my Icelandic set up, which doesn't have the macrons. I'm not gonna try the keyboard thing just yet, but that'd open up whole different can of worms, but ne'ertheless. I'd really like to help the Wiktionary for AS, and maybe add some uniformity too it, because now I am constantly getting confused looking at it, and ironically cannot look up words I'd need to correct the problem. Keep me informed on what I can do.--Timoði Pætricus Snīðer 02:50, 9 Solmōnaþ 2009 (UTC)
I can personally design the entry example, if you want. Just set up a page and I'll do it.--Timoði Pætricus Snīðer 03:24, 9 Solmōnaþ 2009 (UTC)
