A data center switch will happen on March 1. Please check https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/Server_switch to know more about it. 

We need translators' help to update and check the message we usually use. https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Translate&group=page-Tech%2FServer+switch&action=page&filter=&language= 

Translators, please have a careful look at the instructions we provided for some messages. For most cases, you won't have to update much, except for one sentence regarding the time, where you will have to adapt the message to the different places where the language is spoken. Again, no need to give timezones for Latin America for a language that is at 95% spoken in Asia!

Let me know if you have any questions, preferably on the page talk page, so that translators can coordinate there: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Tech/Server_switch

Thank you for your help with this important technical event.
