Subject: [Wikimedia-l] Looking for Wikipedians to add already translated
articles
To: wikimedi...@lists.wikimedia.org, Kul Wadhwa <ktwad...@gmail.com>


We at WikiProject Medicine are working on a collaborative effort with
Translators Without Borders (TWB), a group which includes 2,000 or so
volunteer translators. We are working to translate key medical articles
into as many other languages as possible. Currently we have translated
content into 50 or so languages amounting to 2.3 million words of text.

The process involves first bringing articles to either GA or FA status in
English. They are then delivered, with MediaWiki markup in place, to the
TWB website where the text is sent out to the translators. Once translated
we at Wikipedia are notified via orange links on this page here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:MED/Progress

This issue currently is that we are missing Wikipedians in some languages
to add / combine the translated content into the respective Wikipedia. Some
of the article created through this process have reached feature article
status including translations into Hungarian of anaphylaxis and
hypertension. We currently have translated content in the following
languages waiting to be integrated:

Hindi

Chinese

Persian

Tagalog

Indonesian

Macedonian

Greek

Bulgarian

Danish

Polish

Swedish

Arabic

Ukrainian

Dutch

Czech

Serbian

Slovenian

Spanish

Telugu

Tamil

Punjabi

Turkish

Kurdish

Thai

Swahili

Yoruba

Kinyarwanda

An overview of the efforts can be found here:

If you are interested in getting involved in adding translated articles
instructions are here:

If you have further question or comments I would welcome the feedback.
