Some of you may already be aware that the fight against harassment is one
of the Wikimedia Foundation’s priorities. As part of our coordinated
efforts on this front, the Foundation's Support & Safety team
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Support_and_Safety> has been working
collaboratively with the Wikimedia communities for several months now on
better training materials for contributors who work on harassment issues.
To this end, the team has created training modules
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Training_modules>. These contain
training materials aimed at helping contributors deal with online
harassment situations, and with problems at real life events.
In order for those training modules to be easily accessible to as many
editors as possible in the entire Wikimedia movement we need your help in
translating them into as many languages as we can.
We have finished the final English content of the first two modules and it
is now ready for translation. We are targeting a minimum of ten languages
for these modules, including the English original. So, we need some
translation help from English into at least nine languages.
For a faster and more collaborative effort on this, all the of translation
work will be taking place on Meta
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Training_modules/Translation>. If you
have enough time for this, we'd love help.
There is a lot of work to do here (something like 600 messages) - so you
absolutely don’t have to carry all the burden of the translation alone. Any
little bit you can do will help immensely. The content is split into a
bunch of Aggregate Groups so you can focus on whichever interests you. Feel
free to invite your fellow Wikimedians to this effort!
We look forward to seeing you on those meta pages and helping keep our
Thank you all in advance :) Please email me if you have any concerns or
Thank you to everyone who helped out with translations of this message so
far. We'd like to reach out to a few more communities this week and could
use some help with some specific languages.
If you can help us with translations to Catalan, Farsi, and German in
particular it would be most helpful.
