localisation is an integral part to our success, I forward this to you.
Those who already contribute to our localisation I thank and those who are
capable of supporting MediaWiki by helping in the localisation effort I urge
to lend a hand.
In the end this is a rally intended to help us provide a better service to
our readers and editors.

Subject: Translatewiki newsletter - A new translation rally has begun
Hello, dear translatewiki.net
This is our e-mail newsletter for August 2009. It intends to keep you
updated on translatewiki.net's developments, and is also aimed at reminding
you to visit http://translatewiki.net
at least once every month to update
the language(s) you have been contributing to in the past, so that the
localisations will stay up to date. Because our shortage of staff time, it
has been 6 months since we have sent out our last newsletter. We hope to
make it worth your while :)
Translation Rally: Contribute 500 MediaWiki translations and share in 1,000
In the last week of 2008 we had our first translation
All translators that would contribute more than 500 translations to
MediaWiki would share the 1,000 Euro bounty. To our astonishment 35 users
managed to reach this milestone.
Sponsored by Stichting Open Progress <http://openprogress.org>, with a grant
from Vereniging Wikimedia Nederland <http://nl.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mainpage>'s
"International Projects" fund, we are able to have another translation
rally<http://wiki/Project:Rally-2009-08>with about the same
conditions. The Translation Rally has already started
and will run until 18 August 2009 24:00 UTC. See the project page for
Niklas Laxström <http://wiki/User:Nike> (aka Nikerabbit), founder of
, has entered into the Google Summer of Code
and has already been making
improvements <http://wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/2009/schedule> to the
MediaWiki Translate extension. We are very much looking forward to no longer
having to open new tabs to edit messages, for example. Translatewiki.net
staff remains being most committed to the site's translators.
We welcome feedback about this newsletter. Please let us know by sending a
reply to this mail. We will try to accommodate your wishes.
