Page translation[edit]

@Abdeaitali: @Reda benkhadra: @Touzrimounir: Thanks for making this page! Would you guys mind making or arranging to have made a French version? This would be crucial since Morocco has many French-speaking people. Thanks!

Also if the tabs now are Arabic / English, perhaps they could be made into Arabic / English / French WhisperToMe (talk) 05:10, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment, I have translated the page to French now. However, the tabs become messy for 3 different languages at a time, for now we use Arabic (conference language) + English (international speakers). Abdeaitali (talk) 09:49, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
Abdeaitali, I made the template translatable as well, so you can add French tabs there, too: [1] --Ата (talk) 14:09, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
Done, thanks :) Ата but there are some issues with the tabs now in other page like this one https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiArabia_2019/Scholarships -- Abdeaitali (talk) 15:30, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
Oh yes, thanks for reminding, I will make needed changes now. The point is that translatable templates should be inserted in {{TNT}}, when used on other pages, as this: {{TNT|WikiArabia/2019/header}}. --Ата (talk) 15:55, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
Perfect, thanks Ата once again :) -- Abdeaitali (talk) 13:32, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Tabs navigation in other languages[edit]

Hey User:Ата, I noticed that when navigating the tabs in other languages, clicking on a tab will lead to the page in English. Is there a way to keep the navigation in the same language? Thanks! -- Abdeaitali (talk) 13:59, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Translation system depends on the interface language of the user. E.g. if one has French as their interface language, they will see all tabs in French. --Ата (talk) 15:48, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
I see, thanks User:Ата -- Abdeaitali (talk) 19:31, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory: Phase 2 Monitoring the Culture Gap[edit]

I am writing to tell you that the project Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory (WCDO) has presented a plan for a second phase to extend the project and provide tools based on the data collected. This project might be useful for future interlanguage or geographical collaborations such as Wikiarabia. As a reminder, the WCDO aims at providing valuable strategic data in order to fight for more cultural diversity in each Wikipedia language edition. In the previous phase, we collected the Cultural Context Content (CCC) datasets for all 300 language editions and provided some top priority articles for different topics such as women-men, geolocated, among others (named Top CCC articles). The infrastructure for the project has been set (datasets and website). In this new phase, we plan to create many more tools and visualizations: Top CCC article lists based on community member suggestions, but most importantly, to create a tool to monitor the gaps on a monthly basis and serve it as a newsletter. This way editors are able to constantly see the efforts dedicated to create geolocated articles or cultural context content more in general related to other language editions. Also, we plan to research on marginalized languages in order to see which have more potential to become a new Wikipedia language edition, start creating content about their cultural context ("decolonizing the Internet"), and increase the overall cultural diversity of the project. Most of the project efforts are dedicated to data-compiling and analysis. However, there is a lot of work to do in disseminating the results and tools so they can create more impact in helping local events such as contests. If you think you can join the project, please write us at tools.wcdo@tools.wmflabs.org. If you consider this may be helpful, please help us, provide some feedback and endorse the project. You take a look at the project plan here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Project/WCDO/Culture_Gap_Monthly_Monitoring Thanks in advance for your time. All the feedback is welcome.
