I am not entirely sure how this connects to the topic of the thread.
However, I feel I should note that we are indeed interested in translating
into other languages, and have been seeking people to help with translation
of the website and other organization materials:
Please note that Foundation website is translated in French, but not in many
other languages (including Italian, mine)...
I don’t know why they don’t give the chance to translate.

I think Florence resumed quite well what I was trying to express.
It’s not a criticism - its a fact : I would have been happy to chat with her to
understand the ligic behind the recent rapid grant changes.

The issue Natachat was raising is related to funding our local

I participated in the pre-conference in Brussels this year, to which I was
invited to give a workshop about grants. I decided not to stay the whole 4
days because of personal commitments too.

Thanks for your clarification! Yes of course it is difficult to keep up
with changing WMF rules regarding funding (or reporting). I know in the
past we have run into problems trying to stay aware of all the ins-and-outs
of these things in the Netherlands chapter and for chapters with
Thank you Katherine,
We will be happy to see you in Tunis!
Along with other reps of the WMF I hope, with the possibility of booking
appointments with :
- grant rep
- tech rep

On the francophone wiki there is not “local WIR”. There are a few sister

me for questions) or
Just a quick note that I was invited to Wikiconvention on Friday 9 August
by Wikimedia France. On Monday 12 August (delayed by travel to Wikimania!)
I sent a note expressing my regrets, as I had a family wedding to attend
during that same weekend as the Convention. I also asked at the

Gereon, you clearly forget the whole Mediaviewer saga and attendance of WMF

Since 2010 we have the WikiCon for the German language communities with
more than 300 attendants. I don't remember that the WMF has sent anyone
to these conventions. And why should they? It's all in German, the
communities are established and have strong chapters. I suppose the same
