The dominant language of this usergroup will be English, but everyone should do their best to accommodate Spanish speakers who have a poor command in English. I have done my best to craft the page to accommodate Spanish speakers resident in Texas. There are other languages spoken by immigrant groups in Texas (Vietnamese, Chinese, Persian, Arabic, Korean, Urdu, Amharic, etc.) but the most numerous is Spanish. For other languages you can seek help case-by-case. WhisperToMe (talk) 11:26, 7 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Whilst I am glad that the Spanish-speaking community is taken into consideration, I feel this kind of translations reduce the readability of the page. I'd suggest having a translation administrator tag the page for translation using the translate extension, which would permit language selection. Savhñ 13:32, 7 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]
That will be totally fine. Do you want me to contact him/her? WhisperToMe (talk) 00:59, 8 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Wiki Loves Pride 2014: Houston[edit]

Here is a link to the Houston project page for Wiki Loves Pride 2014, in case the Texas Wikimedians would like to support this effort in any way. Of course, projects or meetups in other Texas cities would also be welcome! Austin? Dallas?--Another Believer (talk) 00:19, 12 May 2014 (UTC)[reply]

However it's possible most Hindustani (Hindi and Urdu) speakers in Texas also have a good command of English, while percentages of English fluency are lower for Spanish, Chinese, and Vietnamese speakers WhisperToMe (talk) 01:04, 24 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]
