ନମସ୍କାର, Wikimedia Oriya! My name is Daniel Bogre Udell and I'm a co-founder at Wikitongues, a non-profit organization and international volunteer community dedicated to defending linguistic diversity. We're building the world's first public archive of every language in the world, and counting some very enthusiastic Wikimedians among our ranks, we're excited to announce that we've submitted a proposal <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Project/Wikitongues_Poly_Feature_Set_1> for this upcoming round of Wikimedia Project Grants to support Poly, an open source platform for sharing and learning languages.
Poly stands to improve the language content for both Wiktionary and Wikivoyages by creating a broader network of language content aggregation. Through it, the breadth of these projects will be expanded and their language accuracy improved. Furthermore, in gaining access to new language communities working with Wikitongues, Wikipedia stands to benefit from the incubation of new language editions. We're eager for community feedback, so if you think there are points of alignment between Poly and other Wikimedia projects, especially related to Oriya language and culture, please let us know in the project's discussion section <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants_talk:Project/Wikitongues_Poly_Feature_Set_1> . Finally, if you believe this project to be worthwhile, we would be honored to have your endorsement, which you can enter in the project's Endorsements section <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Project/Wikitongues_Poly_Feature_Set_1#Endorsements>. We would also greatly appreciate it if you can spread the word among your fellow Wikimedians. Thank you very much! Warmly, Daniel Bogre Udell Director *Wikitongues* www.wikitongues.org Every language in the world +1 (917) 975 1410 @dbudell _______________________________________________ Wikipedia-OR mailing list Wikipedia-OR@lists.wikimedia.org https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikipedia-or
