Through various workshops, the lack of Citoid on GA has been flagged as a barrier to editing for new and existing editors. I have a number of Irish speakers who can assist in translation, but we would like to begin the process of implementing Citoid on Vicipéid.

We have some directions on how to do that here:
Are there any citation templates on ga wiki? I had a look and I couldn't find any.
I think your best bet to start with is to import https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Citation and then translate that template. Is there any one of you that has import rights that can do that?
At the moment there is no tool to insert citation in source editor, and a similar lack of a code generating tool in the visual editor. At the moment editors tend to generate the code in an EN page and then copy paste over. Anything that could help in generating the code to create citations on GA would be a huge improvement. There is also no way of reusing a citation.
It makes editing cumbersome as well as that bit more difficult for newer editors.
Mvolz, please check that my edit at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Citoid%2FEnabling_Citoid_on_your_wiki&action=historysubmit&type=revision&diff=2725762&oldid=2698403 makes sense. Thanks.
