From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a community page that has emerged from the project Minority Translate. However, its main aim is to focus our common interests, and perhaps allow us to build a knowledge base on the topics of language vitality and revitalization in the digital domain. If you know of a similar wiki existing elsewhere please refer it here too. Meanwhile, we have tried to gather the links on some sources.

Due to time-constraints, this Wiki is initially not very well developed, but hopefully we can gather the information and sources we are aware of in time, and collectively. You are very welcome to contribute, and we hope that this wiki provides the necessary opportunities for it. On gathering the knowledge, the connection with the tool itself is only tentative, and we believe that gathering knowledge on our common interest can generally help in creating these and other tools and solution to help with digital language vitality and revitalization.

Minority Translate is a tool for helping smaller sized Wikipedias grow (actually any sized) by helping to show existing articles from any other languages. The user can translate or adapt the material and quickly increase the size and useability of their Wikipedia language edition.
