Please join me in welcoming Srikanth Lakshmanan as outreach
coordinator/QA engineer (contractor) in WMF’s Internationalization
(i18n) / Localization (L10n) engineering team. As the team’s technical
liaison, Srikanth will be actively reaching out and working with our
language communities to get feedback on new i18n/L10n features being
planned or rolled out to Wikimedia sites.
Srikanth hails from Chennai, India. He has been a Wikipedian since
2006 and identifies himself as a wikignome (User:Logicwiki). Srikanth
has provided language support for Tamil Wiki projects and loves to
file bugs (and occasionally fix them) when he sees languages are not
properly supported. Srikanth has recently revived his blogging habit
. His other interests include cycling, travelling
in buses, playing table tennis (aka ping pong). Srikanth is excited to
be able to contribute his tiny bit in making a sum of all human
knowledge more accessible and helping build a more multilingual web!
Check out some of his work on Tamil scripts and consonants at
Srikanth can be reached on email at slakshmanan(a)wikimedia.org or as
@srikanthlogic on our irc channels including #mediawiki,
#wikimedia-dev and #mediawiki-i18n.
Welcome Srikanth! It is great to have you on the i18n engineering team!
Director of Engineering
