I have three brief requests for translations during this month related to
the Inspire Campaign, where we are inviting ideas on how to measure aspects
of community health in Wikimedia projects (for example, related to editor
retention or the ability to learn how to successfully write a new article).
The two pages that need translation are the following:
- The *most important document *is the *text for the CentralNotice
If you would like to translate something, I would prefer you devote your
time to these two sentences if possible, as this is quite brief and will
reach many, many editors.
- The next thing to translate is the landing page for the Inspire
Campaign <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Inspire>. Some
of this already done from past campaigns, but some prose is new for this
campaign specifically. Please note that the term "community health" does
not translate well in all languages. For instance, in German, the
Arbeitsatmosphäre* (trans. "good working atmosphere") is preferred. If
you feel a direct translation in your language is awkward or carries
negative connotations, please let me know.
- The last page to translate is this page on developing an idea for
This does not need to be completed during the month-long campaign, but any
translation work on the page is appreciated. It is much longer, and I do
not expect this to be fully translated any time soon.
If translations could be provided for the first two items by Friday, July
27th, I would be very grateful.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding
translation. You can contact me via e-mail or my talk page on Meta. Thank
you for your work-- any amount of help you can provide is appreciated.
