Hi all,

Last week Arabic Wikipedians organized Arabic Wikipedia Convening (WMF Blog Report [1]) hosted by Qatar Computing Research Institute at Doha. Since the Qatar Institute was looking at options on machine / manual translation to increase articles on Arabic Wikipedia, they had invited a Tamil Wikipedia - Google translation coordinator to learn from the experiences of other communities which did a large scale project. User:Sodabottle presented on the community experiences and learnings[2].
