On the page you want to translate, change the language prefix ( to your language's prefix. This will bring you to a blank page and Wikipedia will ask you if you want to edit it. If you don't know your language's prefix, find it by going to where all the languages are listed.

For example, if you want to translate the article to Japanese, go to and find the link to edit the page.
