  • As a part of this plan, We conducted research to know more about Movement Charter and its importance. The research helped to get a piece of detailed knowledge of the Movement Charter. We translated the pages related to the Movement Charter into the Kashmiri Language. The translated content was circulated to the Community members and Kashmiri language experts for the collection of suggestions. The suggestions were acted upon and reflected in the translations. Once the translations were improved, We started the Community feedback sessions. The meetings were open to all Wikimedians. Venues related to the Kashmiri Wikipedia were notified about the ongoing discussions. For maximum participation, A Main page notice was issued, Community portals and related venues were notified. One-to-one online sessions were also organized to get detailed feedback about Movement Charter content.

The following pages were translated during this project:
