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.
