Summary

Our User Group discovers wikidata a can and we have planned two (2) days for better exchanges.

Wikimedia Guinea (UG) would like to introduce Wikidata to wikimedians, students, teachers and librarians from Conakry and Kamsar (Guinea) as a structural change to the collection and safeguarding of free Wikipedia-related data, which will bring efficiency to the data management in the profession.

It will be the first of its kind in Guinea and could be duplicated.

After the French-speaking Wikiconvention in Brussels, the desire to multiply wikidata actions is great for us.

Discussion

@Aboubacarkhoraa: is it possible to have this application translated into English, or preferably get an English-speaking contact person involved? Unfortunately we will not be able to conduct the necessary communication throughout the process in French. --Alicia Fagerving (WMSE) (talk) 08:19, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
