  • How about including a plan to improve the google translated articles on hindi wikipedia using the institutional tie-ups? There are over 680 articles in w:hi:श्रेणी:गुगल परियोजना. Most of them contain a lot of content translated using google translate from the english wikipedia, and need collaborative editing to fix them.
  • Preparing a basic fact sheet about hindi wikipedia and sending it out to various media houses as a press release might help in generating some awareness.

Hi Siddhartha Ghai, thanks for engaging with the work plan and sharing very useful suggestions. We will certainly implement the first suggestion and try to improve these articles. Would it be nice to send the Hindi Wikipedia fact-sheet along with a write-up about it during some occasion like Hindi Diwas? In our experience, sending press release about Indic Wikipedias and Wiki events (like Language Day or Women's Day, etc), around an occasion got good responses.--Visdaviva (talk) 17:35, 1 April 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Visdaviva:: Yes, sending out the press release around Hindi Divas would be a good idea.--Siddhartha Ghai (talk) 11:19, 2 April 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
