I’m Johanna from Wikimedia Germany’s Technical Wishes team. We’re soon
releasing ReferencePreviews as a new beta feature to many wikis, and I plan
to announce this on village pumps beforehand. It would be great if you
could translate it into your language:
ReferencePreviews show previews of footnotes in the article text. This way,
you don’t have to jump down to the bottom of a page to look up a footnote. The
feature has been in the beta phase on German and Arabic Wikipedia for some
months, and it will now become a beta feature on all Wikipedias and a few
Wikivoyages. If you'd like to know more, please visit the project page:
Deadline for translations is October 21st, 7 am UTC. The announcement will
be sent out that same day around 11 am UTC.
Thanks a lot in advance for your help and your time! It is deeply
Johanna, for the Technical Wishes Project at Wikimedia Germany

We're planning wider announcements and requests for feedback about the new
Desktop Improvements project, and it would be greatly appreciated if you
could help out by translating these 2 pages, which are the massmessage and
the main docs:
It's about a project to make Wikimedia wikis more welcoming to new readers
and new editors while not disrupting the workflows of our most active
We're planning to send the message either later this week, or next week,
depending on how many translations are ready. I might also split it into
batches, in order to spread out the quantity of feedback coming in at once.
Thanks a lot for everything you do, as always!
