As a subject of one/more hackathons I would like to recommend CoSyne . CoSyne is translation and multilingual synchronisation tool. The project was set up by Wikimedia Netherlands together with several universities and other partners, including the EU. The tool makes it possible to translate much more easier from one Wikipedia (etc) to another with much better quality translations than existing translating tools. It does not matter if an article is already written, it is possible with this tool to expand existing articles and to update articles with a new section when on one Wikipedia this was added. It makes it possible to exchange information in more languages and helps users to keep the articles up-to-date.
I have tested the Bèta version of this tool and these tests were very successful.  https://nl.wikimedia.org/wiki/CoSyne Romaine 2014-07-09 13:55 GMT+02:00 Quim Gil <q...@wikimedia.org>: > So far there are no candidates to organize the next Wikimedia Hackathon in > Europe.
