Grants:IdeaLab/Better coordination between Wikipedia in different languages
What is the problem you're trying to solve?
The most complete information that is available in the world, without needing to navigate between languages, or even knowing these languages.
What is your solution?
Just as Wikipedia used volunteers to provide content, volunteers can consult sites in different languages and translate content from one language to the other to ensure consistency.
Who will you be doing outreach with?
About the idea creator
I have a professional architectural degree from the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, France, and an MBA from the Zicklin School of Business, Baruch College, NY. I lived and worked in the United States, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. I am married to a Cameroonian architect, Epee Ellong, with whom I published De La Case A La Villa (2014), on the evolution of African housing. I am active in social media with two blogs - Padoukdesign.com and AwayFromAfrica.com, as well as on Twitter and Instagram.
