Fante is spoken by at least 2 million people in Ghana. It is principally spoken in the central and southern regions of Ghana as well as in settlements in other regions in western Ghana. Notable speakers include Cardinal Peter Appiah Turkson, Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan, and former Ghanaian presidents Kwame Nkrumah and John Atta Mills. Maya Angelou learned Fante as an adult during her stay in Ghana.

The Fante Wikipedia incubator and Fante on translatewiki was revived after the Twi Translatewiki Project. This was because the event hosted participants who speak Fante and would like to contribute in Fante.

This project seeks to:

  • Build a full language support for the Fante Wikipedia incubator, create more articles and translate all the most commonly used messages on media as one of the requirements for a new language Wikipedia request
  • Build the foundation that the Fante community may leverage to start new projects in future.
  • Start translate most of the essential features from English to Fante on translatewiki.net
  • Engage existing editors
  • Recruit new editors
