在刚刚过去的11月,来自全世界的维基人在维基百科亚洲月编辑马拉松中创造了惊人的成就。来自41个语言版本维基百科的1286名编者创建或大幅扩充了4310个条目(3600万字节)。西班牙文维基人Rauletemunoz以103个条目成为亚洲月贡献最多的用户。作为主要的组织者之一,东亚及东南亚(ESEA)社群中的9个维基百科参与了本次活动。我们将帮助规模较小的维基百科社群成长作为亚洲月的目标之一,所以我们计划在2016年的亚洲月活动中帮助更多的少数民族语言或原住民语言维基百科。如果您有兴趣在2016年11月加入我们,或有什么创意与我们分享,请在Meta的讨论页参与讨论。

In November 2015, Wikimedia Community around world collaborated in Wikipedia Asian Month edit-a-thon to write articles about Asian countries. Nine Wikipedia communities from ESEA organized the event, which achieved an amazing accomplishment in the span of 30 days. As the result, 1,286 editors created or largely expanded 4,310 articles in 41 language versions of Wikipedia, or 36 million bytes. Spanish Wikipedian named Rauletemunoz edited 103 articles, the highest number of contribution during the event. Small token of appreciation in the form of postcards are sent from ESEA countries for those who successfully write at least 5 articles. Since one of our major goals of Wikipedia Asian Month is helping smaller communities to grow therefore we are planning to get more languages involved, especially the minority or indigenous languages. Wikipedia Asian Month is planned to be held annually every November. Any ideas or suggestion are warmly welcome on our talk page, or for more information please contact Addis Wang (WMCN).

Pada bulan Mei hingga Juli 2015, Wikimedia Indonesia dan Museum Tamansiswa Dewantara Kirti Griya di Yogyakarta serta didukung Ford Foundation Indonesia, bekerja sama untuk mendigitalisai koleksi naskah kuno Jawa. Proyek ini digagas oleh Christopher Allen Woodrich yang merupakan anggota WMID, Wikipediawan berpengalaman, dan kontributor Wikimedia Commons. Museum Tamansiswa bertanggung jawab untuk memindai koleksi berharga ini, yang banyak di antaranya berasal dari tahun 1800an. Setelah itu, Chris mengedit gambar-gambar yang telah dipindai dan menggunggahnya ke Wikimedia Commons (untuk koleksi yang telah bebas hak cipta dan masuk domain publik), Wikipedia Bahasa Inggris (domain publik di Amerika Serikat), dan perpustakaan digital khusus anggota WMID "Bebaskan Pengetahuan" (masih berhak cipta). Sebanyak 100 buku telah didigitalisasi dan dapat diakses oleh akademisi, peneliti, dan masyarakat umum. Pada bulan Desember 2015, WMID dan Museum Tamansiswa mengadakan syukuran untuk kesuksesan proyek ini. Kedua pihak juga mendiskusikan keberlanjutan proyek ini di masa depan terutama untuk ribuan koleksi museum lainnya, termasuk surat-surat Ki Hadjar Dewantara yang merupakan perintis pendidikan Indonesia di masa penjajahan.

Malugod na inihahayag ng Wikimedia Pilipinas ang paglulunsad ng isang bagong proyekto: ang Ensiklopedya ng Pamanang Pilipino! Ito ang ikalawang yugto ng matagumpay na Cultural Heritage Mapping Project (CHMP) ng organisasyon na ginanap noong 2014 at 2015, na nakatuon sa paglikha at pagpapanatili ng makabagong impormasyon at nilalaman ukol sa pamanang pangkultura ng Pilipinas sa Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons at Wikidata, kasama na ang samu’t-saring pamanang pook sa bansa, likas man o gawa ng tao. Sa halos 800 artikulong pinabuti sa loob ng huling dalawang taon, inaasahan ng proyekto na itutuloy nito ang pagtatala ng kasaysayan ng Pilipinas bago ito mawala sa daloy ng panahon. Inilunsad ito noong Araw ng Wikipedia, 15 Enero, sa Press Café sa Lungsod ng San Juan, Kalakhang Maynila, at sasali ang 14 kusang-loob mula sa CHMP sa proyektong ito upang tumulong sa nakapahalagang misyon na ito, sa pamumuno ng Tagapangulo ng WMPH (at pinuno ng CHMP) na si Eugene Villar. Kinakailangan pa rin ng Ensiklopedya ng Pamanang Pilipino ang lahat ng tulong na makakamit nito upang mailunsad ito nang matagumpay! Manatiling nakatutok sa kung paano ka makakasali sa proyekto at makakatulong sa pagsasawalang-hanggan ng kayamanan ng kasaysayan ng Pilipinas sa Wikipedia at ibang mga proyektong Wikimedia.

Wikimedia Philippines is proud to announce the launch of a new project: the Encyclopedia of Philippine Heritage (EPH)! It will be the second phase of the chapter’s successful Cultural Heritage Mapping Project in 2014 and 2015 which will focus on the creation and curation of new information and content pertaining to Philippine cultural heritage on Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata, including the country’s rich variety of heritage sites both natural and man-made. With nearly 800 articles improved over the last two years, the project hopes to continue the very important job of documenting the Philippines’ history before it is lost to time. Launched during Wikipedia Day, January 15th, at the Press Café in San Juan City, Metro Manila, fourteen volunteers from the CHMP will be joining the EPH to help us on this important mission, led by WMPH Chairman (and CHMP project lead) Eugene Villar. The Encyclopedia of Philippine Heritage though can use all the help it can get to get it off the ground! Stay tuned for how you can join the project and help immortalize the richness of Philippine history on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects.

新竹是臺灣以科技聞名的城市,知名的3C品牌如蘋果公司、宏碁電腦,都使用新竹科學園區設計的元件。為了培育人才,新竹有數所如交通大學清華大學等頂尖教育機構,其中包括有聲維基計劃的新夥伴——國立交通大學外文系。在這個計畫中,外文系的一年級學生朗讀特優條目並上傳維基共享資源,讓視障者也能使用維基百科。過去十五年來,中文維基百科只有44篇有聲條目,而這次專案的參與者在三個月內已完成了46篇。現在,發起有聲百科的外文系賴郁雯教授團隊中,來自印尼的研究生將沿用中文維基百科的錄製程序,進行印尼文維基的有聲條目的錄音。

Hsinchu is a city known for its high-tech industry. World-leading computer brands such as Apple Inc. and Acer all use components designed in Hsinchu Science Park located in the city. To nurture tech and engineering talents, there are several prestigious universities around the area, including National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) among others. The Department of Foreign Languages and Literature at NCTU is the latest educational partner of Spoken Wikipedia project. In this project, 10 freshmen from the department recorded Featured Articles of Wikipedia, and uploaded the sound files onto Wiki Commons to benefit visually impaired readers of Wikipedia. In the past fifteen years, Chinese Wikipedia has only 44 spoken articles, but within the last 3 months, the students had completed the recording and uploading of 46 articles. Right now, the team led by Dr. Yuwen Lai, the professor who initiated this collaborative project, is also advising a graduate student from Indonesia to follow the same recording protocol for Spoken Wikipedia project in Bahasa Indonesia.
