The Wikimedia Foundation is beginning a new initiative called Community
Capacity Development (CCD). In it, we have conducted some research
about community capacities, and documented what we've learned in these
pages we are now inviting you to consider translating.
We hope these pages can serve as a basis for very concrete conversation
between WMF and specific communities about possible projects to build
specific capacities in interested communities. The work is to be based on
interest and mutual agreement, not on top-down dictates from WMF. That's
why it's important these documents -- this page and the six sub-pages
mentioned in the navigation bar at its top -- reach the different
communities in their own language. It's quite a bit of text, so of course
you should take your time, if you do choose to translate it.
Thank you very much for your consideration, and please let me know if
anything is unclear.

Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the
sum of all knowledge. Help us make it a reality!
