Problem: Writing for non-native english readers[edit]

Sometimes it is hard to know what level of complexity written documentation is and you need to know whether someone with a basic reading ability will understand (User:JAnstee (WMF)).

Solution: In Argentina, we've found that working with local communities outside of major cities is a great way. We usually do interviews with the local communities first to see what they need, and follow up with events tailored to their work --EGalvez (WMF) (talk) 18:27, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

About this initiative[edit]

For many years, the Wikimedia movement has acknowledged language, culture and gender diversity as important for its goal to share the sum of all human knowledge.

The Wikimedia movement faces many diversity challenges.

Several initiatives have tried to understand the problem and work towards increasing diversity in participation and content coverage to address these gaps (e.g., Writing Diversity back in Wikipedia toolkit and Charting diversity). We want to add one more!
