Project idea[edit]

What Wikimedia project(s) and specific areas will you be evaluating?[edit]

Is this project measuring a specific space on a project (e.g. deletion discussions), or the project as a whole?
I'm from Spain, and could observe that there are not proper tutorials about translating from english to spanish,

Describe your idea. How might it be implemented?[edit]

It could be done by chapters, from basic to difficult in an official wikipedia channel on youtube, allowing more people who have the knowledge and the aim to edit or translate, but not the technical skills, to contribute.

Are there experienced Wikimedians who can help implement this project?[edit]

If applicable, please list groups or usernames of individuals who you can work with on this project, and what kind of work they will do.
Not to my knowledge.

How will you know if this project is successful? What are some outcomes that you can share after the project is completed?[edit]

More people hampered to contribute due to technical limitations will be able to do it.

How would your measurement idea help your community make better decisions?[edit]

After you are finished measuring or evaluating your Wikimedia project, how do you expect that information to be used to benefit the project?
I don't know.

Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need?[edit]

Do you need people with specific skills to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? If you can’t implement this project, can you scale down your project so it is doable?
