Aneat VisualEditor

VisualEditor is ae "veesual" waa o eeditin Wikipædia. Histericlie, eeditin Wikipædia haes needed fawk tae learn wiki maurkup, ae fairlie complex maurkup leid, even tae mak fair wee chynges til ae page. In 2001, this wis acceptable; in 2013, it is drivin contreebuters awa. We hope that VisualEditor will be uissefu til exeestin contreebuters n mair weelcomin til new contreebuters.

VisualEditor haes been available aes an opt-in "alpha" release oan the Ingils-leid Wikipædia sin Dizember 2012, in 14 mair leids sin April 2013, n awmaist aw ither leids sin the beginnin o Juin. We expect tae mak it available til awmaist aw Wikimedia Foundation wikis bi the end o 2014. We expect to make it available by default to most of the remaining languages in late 2015. Since late November 2014, it is also available as an opt-in Beta Feature at all WMF wikis except Wiktionary and Wikisource.
