This is the language committee report for August 2012.


Requests and approvals[edit]


  • Langcom suggests to create a mobile phone application that allows easy uploading of audio or video recording to Commons, and putting them on a Wikipedia or Wiktionary page of the recorded word or concept; as such recordings are a good way to help (endangered) languages on WMF projects. The current app that was developed for uploading Wiki Loves Monuments entries could probably be easily adapted, if there is a developer who would like to attend to do this.
  • An appreciable Outreach project has lead to a high number of contributions in the Yucatec Wikipedia test project on Incubator this month.
