What makes more sense at this point is to start adding a paragraph about Wikidata to the Tech News as they are rather than having a whole separate translatable newsletter. In the Tech News there's a whole paragraph every week about the VisualEditor, and there are short updates about CirrusSearch and MediaViewer almost every week. A weekly update about Wikidata can be there, too. If a whole paragraph is too long, a couple of the most important points would be a good beginning.

It takes me less than ten minutes a week to translate each whole Tech News issue. Adding a few sentences about Wikidata should add no more than two minutes to the time that the translators already invest. I think that it's perfectly doable.

I want the subject's mailing list to be translatable and delivered the same way as it's with Tech news. I've asked about it on it's subscription page's talk page and faced there Lydia, who doesn't believe that there would be any volunteers (except for me in the current point) to translate it.

So if you would like to translate the newsletter when it would be set to be possible, could you leave a note in [[:m:Talk:Global_message_delivery/Targets/Wikidata#Multilingual distribution]] about your willing so we get Lydia convinced :) Poking friends who may do it is welcome as well ;)

Also it would be nice if Odder or/and Guillom leave a note about technical side of such delivery the same way as the latter was so kind to leave in Education newsletter's talk :)

Yours sincerely,
