Hello Offline fans,
In 2021, I plan to get a Spanish version of WikiFundi created with the
help of Antonio
Reminder : WikiFundi (1) is a software that provides off-line editing
environment that mimics the Wikipedia environment. WikiFundi allows for
training and contribution when technology, access and electricity
outages fail or are not available at all. It enables individuals, groups
and communities to learn how to edit Wikipedia, and to work on articles
collaboratively. It requires a local server (such as a raspberry
PI)which will provide a local wifi network to which editors may contact.
Once completed and connected to the internet, the articles produced can
be uploaded to Wikipedia.
WikiFundi is primarily disseminated at the moment through the Kiwix
environnement. It is for example used during the WikiChallenge Ecoles
d'Afrique, a writing contest that run in (mostly rural) schools of 8
francophone countries (2)
I am currently looking for interested people to provide any help they
think relevant, with the amount of time and energy they can afford. Any
little help welcome.
If you are interested, please answer me, publicly or privately, and drop
your username signature on the project page (3) so that I can contact you.
Help could be
a) help to develop the content pages of WikiFundi (I am in particular
looking for people super knowledgeable with the our pillars, NPOV and
such, to list and summarize those pages)
b) provide additional educational resources to be put on WikiFundi.
Currently all the resources are either in English or French. Looking for
fresh relevant resources in Spanish to be added
c) beta testing, fixing links, language, typoes, page review with good eyes
d) translate the userguide in Spanish !
e) when the software is ready, helping to relay the info, to communicate
about it (such as writing a blogpost in Spanish about it, or hosting a
post, or hosting a webinar to talk about the software etc.)
f) and using the software in disconnected areas, providing feedback and
telling the story
g) more ?
Please no one be shy.
