I think we should begin by the escope. What are the languages in each case? I know there are thousands, but maybe some examples could be more illustrative and useful. CasteloBrancomsg 03:41, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

(I break your comment)
I wrote the text with certain level of ambiguity on purpose. My idea is that everybody who feels that his language projects are not developed enough because of social, economic, politic or demographic reasons similar to those other languages suffer they can join and work together do perform better. But this is a wiki feel free to improve it by providing examples.--Gomà 18:11, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
Oh, ok, thanks for the explanation, Gomà. So, do you think Catalan itself it's a target? I'm wondering if Esperanto should be. CasteloBrancomsg 18:42, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
Yes I think both are targets. In both cases all their speakers are at least bilingual; they are not official languages in any country (except in Andorra for Catalan). People are obliged by the law to understand other languages (theoretically except in Andorra), many Catalans can’t write Catalan (for example in South Catalonia only 65% can write)…
I thing both are especially interesting cases. Catalan because although the difficulties has managed to grow relatively well its Wikipedia and Esperanto because it can be seen as a possible solution to the other language’s problems.--Gomà 13:51, 30 January 2011 (UTC)


Can we set another timeline? Maybe March 1st, before the international convention? CasteloBrancomsg 03:41, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

What do you mean for another timeline?--Gomà 18:11, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
As in "Activities schedule for 2010 – 2011", we should put 10 proposals in Incubator until January 10th. As it's in the past, and I don't know if you've already done this, I think we should extend this deadline. CasteloBrancomsg 18:42, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
When we wrote that we had contacted to Rosetta Stone project and they had told us they where enthusiastic to collaborate in the project. Bu from then I repeatedly asked for help in contacting activist from several languages without Wikipedia and I got no answer. So you are right we should change the timeline and perhaps also the objective.--Gomà 13:57, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

More than Wikipedia[edit]

I think we could not be limited to Wikipedia. Sure it's the most famous project, but for some languages, this could not be the priority now. Maybe for some endangerous languages, a Wiktionary could be more useful and urgent, and I think we can agree with that. Can we consider open the goal "10 new Wikipedias" to "10 new Wikimedia projects" or just "10 new languages" (in any project)? CasteloBrancomsg 03:41, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

I fully agree with you. I just said wikipedia because this is the most known project. --Gomà 18:11, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Wikimedia Indigenous Languages[edit]

I see there isn't much activity here since 2011, but I'd like to inform you of the creation of Wikimedia Indigenous Languages, an international body for the coordination for the development of Wikimedia projects in small languages. Everybody who is interested is welcome to join. Amqui (talk) 20:39, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
