Step 1:

Start by going to the country's page your translating the language for. Here you press the edit button at the top. (It might be something else, according to the user language you have choosed for the wiki!)

Step 2:

Then you enter this: (Enter it at the bottom of the page!)

== Geni Translation ==
{{LANGUAGE translation}}

(Change LANGUAGE with the language you’re translating. It has to be what it's called in English! Do not write it in CAPITAL LETTERS. Just in normal case.)

Step 3:

Now, go to this webpage:
(Again, change LANGUAGE with the language you’re translating. )

Step 4:

Now you’ve arrived at the page, your translation will be. You always go to this page when you want to translate. Now enter this:

{{Translation|Template:LANGUAGE translation|
}}<noinclude>[[Category:Language-specific translation templates|LANGUAGE]]</noinclude>

(As always, change LANGUAGE with the language you’re translating.)

Step 5:

Then you copy this list: List of terms for translation template
This list is only a part of the translation. The list will not be updated when new terms get added to the translation template! You'll have to enter the new terms by yourself then!
Paste the list, between:

{{Translation|Template:LANGUAGE translation| 
}}<noinclude>[[Category:Language-specific translation templates|LANGUAGE]]</noinclude> 

Step 6:

Now you can start translating. You just add a = next to a term and then enter the translation. See here:

Step 7:

This you do all the way down. Now if you save and go out of edit mode, you’ll see something like this:

Step 8:

Everytime you’ve translated something, the box next to becomes green. When it’s orange, it’s not translated yet. When you have translated everything, everything box next to the terms, should become green. If that’s not the case, you’ve done something wrong. If you can’t figure it out, you can try to contact me or somebody else to help you. Or ask in the forum. To contact me, see at the bottom of this page.

Now, if you one day discover that a box has turned orange, but you go into edit mode and see that you’ve already translated everything, it’s because a new term has been added to the list. To translate the term, you do this:

Step 1b:

First you copy the text, the box has turned orange next to. Let’s say it’s: How to import a gedcom file

Step 2b:

Then you go into edit mode, at the bottom of the list or at the top of the list you add this:

|How to import a gedcom file=TRANSLATION

REMEMBER to start with | at the start of the line. Or else it’ll go wrong.
You decide yourself where you place the new translation, just as long as it’s in between the text you entered in step 5.
That’s it! It’s not more complicated than that!
