Wikimedia Foundation’s Language team is currently working on the second
version of Content Translation - the popular tool that helps you create new
Wikipedia articles by translating from another article. More than 300000
articles have been translated
using this tool already. To give a preview of what to expect in the
improved version of the tool, we would like to invite you for an online
office hour session scheduled for Wednesday, July 4th, 2018 at 13:00 UTC.
