Nataliia, You asked the WMF to fund and commission translations for the election.
I am not the WMF and do not know what they might think, but I wanted to carry on the conversation. One part of your concern that I would like to address is pricing. You suggested that for a small amount of money, translation could be done of election writings. You say, "If WMF refuses, I am going to use my own money , it costs 150 UAH (around 6 USD) to have a page translated". The active Wikipedia community needs perhaps 10-25 languages, and maybe we could select 15. If we hired a translation service for this amount of text and that many languages, the cost I would expect is not less than USD $75,000. I think that if we discuss your request, we should begin by imagining it as a request for $75,000 to go to a translation company. I am not sure why you mentioned a $6 price. This would not be inexpensive. Can you please clarify how much money you are proposing be spent on translation? yours, -- Lane Rasberry user:bluerasberry on Wikipedia 206.801.0814 l...@bluerasberry.com _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
