The Mighty Translation Initiative

May 1st, 2023. You are almost asleep, buried deep into the safety of your weighted blanket. After spending all the evening behind your computer, working on a particularly difficult translation, it is pleasant to get some well-deserved rest. The INT wiki is an enticing mistress, but you need your hours of sleep nonetheless.

Suddenly, you are awakened by a smell both unknown and unknowable. It is sweet, rich, fascinating… somehow wordy as well? You open your eyes and turn around, only to see that the center of your bedroom is now occupied by some kind of supernatural rift. Besides your bed sits a gigantic cauldron, filled with a bubbling mixture which seems to be the source of the smell. Though it is a concrete substance, it appears to be a mix of… words, stories? You can both hear and feel cries, songs, atmospheres and characters throughout time and space. You lean over the pot to get a better look, and… Is that right? You recognize the very SCP stories you have been reading or translating all these years. Lore from your branch. Lore from other branches. Even your own works are in there!

The cauldron begins to speak. Though it does not have a mouth, you can hear its words very clearly. It says that it is far from being full. It wants you to fill it up. But… with what?

"Lore. Lore from you. Lore from everywhere. I want more lore. I need more lore. I know it is out there, but in a language I cannot comprehend, for I only understand English. Therefore, I want you to translate it for me."

"Whatever for?"

"That, I cannot yet say. The recipe shall remain a secret for now. But if you contribute enough, if you fill me up to the brim with delicious stories from every language on this Earth, then I will reveal to you my secret."

"Your secret?"

"Yes. My my secret. I promise that if you prove yourself worthy, you will not be disappointed. For now, go, translator! Do your best, show me your talent!"

The Rules

For the entire duration of this Initiative, every translation you post on the INT wiki will earn you points, depending on the type of the translated page:

  • SCPs, tales and other regular articles are worth 1 point each;
  • seminars, pages with the orientation tag and tales that introduce a reusable and recurrent element of lore are worth 2 points;
  • MTF, GoI or Canon hubs, as well as facility dossiers, are worth 3 points.

In the case of collaborative translations, all translators receive points.

You can register by adding yourself in the table below (the Mighty Chef Register) as soon as you qualify for at least one point.

  • 1st column: your Wikidot username.
  • 2nd column: the links to all your translations that are worth at least one point.
  • 3rd: your total score.

Please do not edit other users' scores. If you spot any errors, either in the links or scores, please contact the organizers on Wikidot (Dr LekterDr Lekter, CauchynambourCauchynambour, ReyasReyas) or Discord (Lekter#1551, Sanxws#8146, Reyas#8692).

Looking for feedback on translations? Feel free to join the INT Discord!

ONLY TRANSLATIONS THAT ARE RANKED o, oo OR ooo WILL COUNT TOWARDS THE SCORES! If any of your translations posted for this initiative get re-evaluated as oooo, the organizers reserve the right to remove the translation from the mighty chef register and update your score accordingly. Likewise, if you correct one of your oooo translations so that it gets re-evaluated as ooo, you may add them back to the register and update your score.

The purpose of this initiative is to increase the amount of international documents and information available on INT so that the upcoming Kitchen Nightmares can occur in the best conditions.

The initiative is over! Congratulations to the winners!
