    This is a feature we have planned.

    It will allow you to choose between a number of aliases for every event. These aliases can be edited or added by anyone.

    For example:

    Other aliases for the event “Presidency of Barrack Obama” could be:
    1. “Barrack Obama”
    2. “Obama presidency”
    3. “44th President”
    4. "44th President of the US

    Note: This feature will not let you create completely new events, it will just allow alternative names for the exisitng one’s.

    For creating distinct new events, see feature http://histropedia.uservoice.com/forums/246686-general/suggestions/6307522-create-global-events-linked-to-any-section-in-a-w

    This is an absolutely vital feature and is currently on our roadmap to be started just after we release the timeline directory.

    It will give you the ability to create any Custom event that you like, that will then be available to all users of the site (including the ability to edit the details you choose).

    This will finally allow the creation of the finer details of history, like individual events that happened in a person’s life.

    The planned feature will have the following following options for a custom event:

    1) Choose any desired name.

    2) Link the event to any section of a any Wikipedia article.

    3) If desired, the date for a custom event can be linked to a chosen date in Wikidata, so that it can be maintained by bots automatically in case of any future changes to the date.

    Note: We also plan to allow ‘aliases’…

    The the main site is still English only unfortunately, and development is currently focused on on our timeline engine (HistropediaJS). This is our first revenue stream, so we’re just building it up to the stage where we can sustain ongoing development of the main site as well.

    We do however have a separate tool that can display timelines in other languages using live data from Wikidata data:
    http://histropedia.com/showcase/wikidata-viewer.html

    Here’s an example timeline:
    Items within 3km of Rome city centre (in Italian) – https://tinyurl.com/y8j8sp6l

    Unfortunately this tool uses Wikidata queries so you would need to learn the syntax before being able to write your own.

    But it’s very easy to edit existing queries to change the language of the output. Let us know if you need help getting started!
