This is a plugin for German DokuWiki installations. You can apply one of various dialects.

The plugin will of course work with non-German wikis (you can't break anything) but its quite useless (except for Leet-Speak, but that's useless, too).

Included dialects are:

As this plugin is a render plugin, the source code of the page will not be touched. Only the presentation of the page will be changed.

The plugin is inspired by the Talk like a Pirate Plugin and uses the plugin as a template, so that not everything has to be written from scratch.

Download and Installation

  • Extract to lib/plugins/.
  • Log-in as administrator.
  • Change the option render_xhtml to mundart (alternativly you can edit conf/local.php)
  • Change the options according to your needs.

Options & Settings

You can edit some stuff via the backend.

  • mundart_type You can select your desired dialect here.
  • mundart_alwayson Check if you want to turn the plugin On.
  • mundart_headeron Check if you want to have a message on Top of every page, so that your customers are not confused.
  • mundart_timer You can activate the plugin for special days, and disable it for the rest of the time. Format is MM-DD (multiple values with ;).

So if you want to have the plugin activated on Christmas and New Year, but disabled for the rest of the time:

  • mundart_alwayson Off
  • mundart_timer 12-24;01-01
  • mundart_alwayson Off


The translation is far from perfect and need some improvements. Nevertheless, it's working and it's really funny to read the wiki pages with a dialect.

Maybe someone wants to do some dialects for English wikis?
