Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?
    • The number of created articles is much more than expected in each month (201% in total). Several expert translators joined and translated significant number of articles
  • What did not work so well?
    • The number of the participants is a bit under estimation number.
    • So many articles has to be marked, took so much time with Fountains.
    • COVID 19 pandemic came and it took me a while to finish this grant
  • What would you do differently next time?
    • We will promote the competition even earlier (1 month in advance) to attract more contestants
