I am Mathilde Louis, project manager at Wikimédia France, also
coordinator of the "Wikeys" project, the pedagogical game I introduced
during the EduWiki Conf in Belgrade in may (see the caption of the
workshop here <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQmddSHKvQg>).
I am contacting you because you left your email address (which I hope I
wrote correctly ...) on a note concerning the game Wikeys during the
EduWiki conference. I would like to thank you for your interest first,
and also ask for some little help for the *translation of the game*.
Last week, with Vjola and Guillermo (in CC), we started working on the
of the game, from french to *english*. We are meeting again next tuesday
to work on a draft, and we *need some native english speakers to
proofread our draft*. Is there anyone interested in proofreading our
translation or more globally help us out with the translation in general?
The idea is to have an english version ready for the Wikimania in
Sinapore: who's in?
Have a great end of week (for Wikimédia France, this Weekend is Wikicamp

Dear Mathilde Louis,
Thank you for reaching out and providing an update on the Wikeys project.
I'm glad to hear that progress is being made, and I appreciate the
opportunity to contribute to the translation efforts.
As a native English speaker, I would be happy to assist with proofreading
the draft translation from French to English. I understand the importance
of accurate and well-crafted translations, particularly for a pedagogical
game like Wikeys.
Please let me know how I can access the draft and contribute to the
proofreading process. I am committed to ensuring the English version is
ready in time for Wikimania in Singapore. If there are any specific
deadlines or milestones, please inform me, and I'll do my best to meet them.
Once again, thank you for considering me for this task. I'm excited to be a
part of the Wikeys project and contribute to its success. If there are any
additional ways I can assist, please don't hesitate to let me know.
Wishing you and the team a productive meeting on Tuesday and a fantastic
weekend at Wikicamp!

Wikimedia & Education enthusiasts,
The Wikipedia & Education User Group Board (Filip, Susanna, João, Ziko,
Bukola, and myself) along with our co-hosts Wikimedia Serbia and
co-organizer Sailesh from the WMF education team, want to extend another
thank you to all of you who attended the EduWiki Conference, either
virtually or in person, in late May! We've been busy recovering from all
the organizing and then creating our next steps. We have a few important
updates for you:
==Future of Wikimedia & Education research==
Thanks to those of you who participated in the "Future of Wikimedia &
Education" track discussions in Belgrade, as well as those of you who did
Zoom-based interviews with Cornelius, in an effort to create a shared
definition of our corner of the Wikimedia & Education movement and identify
the needs we as program leaders have. Cornelius is putting the finishing
touches on his research report, which we'll be adding to Meta in the
coming weeks. We invite everyone to attend the next Open Meeting of the
Wikipedia & Education User Group, where he will present his findings.
When: Monday, July 24, at 16:00 UTC (see in your time here:
Please join us!
==Videos from the EduWiki Conference==
We've uploaded videos from all sessions that agreed to be recorded on our
YouTube channel here:
Unfortunately, the Video2Commons tool is broken, but once it's fixed, we'll
port them all over to Commons so they're available there as well!
==Next EduWiki Conference==
Many people are eagerly awaiting our next EduWiki Conference! If your group
is serious about wanting to host a future one (Wikimedia Serbia, our
excellent hosts this year, dedicated *significant* staff time to hosting
this event, so keep that in mind), please reply to this email offlist to
let me know. We're aiming to have it in October 2024 and will need to
submit our conference grant application within the next two months. We have
a strong preference for a non-European location, since our last two events
have been in Europe, to ensure regional diversity, but we welcome interest
from other European countries for future events.
==User Group updates==
A few other quick notes:
* We had a lot of membership applications for our user group -- very
exciting! We'll be updating the Meta page soon to include all our new
* We're working on a re-launch of our Mentorship Program; stay tuned for
