Content projects[edit]

Content Projects

During February we focused in the Intercultur challenge, a project co-organised with Wikimedia Spain. The cultural aspects of a language are fundamental because the cultural heritage that a large part of societies receive from the past is vertebrate through their language. This is the main motivation for Intercultur, a public writing contest that seeks to make visible the cultural heritage through the lingüistic variety existing in Spain. It consists of translating existing articles into the languages ​​spoken in Spain, so at the end of the contest all articles provided in a single language are translated into nine. The suggested articles should be provided by the community of Wikipedians existing in those languages, as a way of translating into them the cultural heritage of their linguistic domain.
