Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

  • Russian users don't understand or can't benefit from freely licensed dictionaries, even though the Russian Wiktionary is one of the most successful.
  • Female editors seem more likely to contribute on collaborative dictionaries other than Wiktionary, in particular Multitran.

What is your solution?[edit]

Investigate what made Multitran successful (probably the same things which worked in some Wiktionaries: mass imports and easy editing). Implement some missing things in the Russian Wiktionary. Attract more users and/or make Multitran users import their contributions on Wiktionary.


Get Involved[edit]



  • I think it is a good idea to look at success stories outside of WMF space. Libcub (talk) 01:32, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
