Hello! Sorry for cross posting.
Translators needed to translate the May 2012 Wikimedia highlights. It is also a nice chance to know the status and progress of the foundation plus how the media wiki translation extension<http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Translate>works. In case you encounter any difficulties feel free to contact me. //Stephen ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Tilman Bayer <tba...@wikimedia.org> Date: Sat, Jun 16, 2012 at 5:12 AM Subject: [Translators-l] Translations wanted for May 2012 Wikimedia Highlights To: Wikimedia Translators <translator...@lists.wikimedia.org> Hi, as every month, translations are wanted for the new edition of the "Wikimedia Highlights", consisting of the most relevant information from the Foundation's general and technical monthly reports for April, with a short selection of other important news from the Wikimedia movement. Please consider helping non-English-language Wikimedia communities to stay updated on the most important WMF activities, MediaWiki development work and other international news from the past month, by providing a translation at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Highlights,_May_2012 For Danish, German, Finnish, French, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian (Bokmål), Dutch, Polish, Vietnamese, Finnish, Russian, Hungarian, Macedonian, Tamil and Turkish, it is useful to compare the earlier translations ( https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Highlights#Previous_issues ), as the "Data and Trends" and "Financials" sections contain a lot of recurring vocabulary. As usual, it is planned to announce the translations - i.e.those which have been completed at that point - on the general Wikimedia announcements list Wikimediaannounce-l, on Wednesday, June 20. Of course translations will still be welcome after that announcement. We are also posting the translated versions as language- and country-targeted updates of the official Wikipedia Facebook account, which reaches a large audience, and recently started promoting them on other social media channels as well (e.g. https://twitter.com/Wikimedia/status/201975842472067072 ). Many thanks! Regards, Stephen. Wikimedia Kenya Board Member & Treasurer
