"Help us with translations!"[edit]

Hey Baba Tabita, thanks for translating the notices for Wikimania into Kiswahili! However, we don't have a translation for "Help us with translations!" (other languages already had it, yours did not :-(). Would you mind translating it here? Thanks! Cbrown1023 talk 20:32, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Kenyan Wiipedian Stories[edit]


My name is Victor Grigas and I'm a storyteller with the Wikimedia Foundation in San Francisco. I'm chronicling the inspiring stories of the Wikipedia community from around the world. Stories are critical to inform and inspire the general public to support the Wikipedia movement by donating their money or to become volunteers themselves.

After seeing this inspiring story about Kenya's very own Gabriel Nderitu -

and hearing about the 'Project for Kenyan Schools', I thought that it might be fruitful to plan a trip to Kenya to interview Kenyan Wikipedians face-to-face.

I would need to confirm that I have at least 15 people to speak with who may have interesting stories about Wikipedia to make the trip worth the money. If needed, I could hire a translator. My understanding is that iHub in Nairobi hosts Wiki-meetups once a month. It may be feasible to attend a meetup there and interview people individually after that?

Please let me know what you think, I would very much like the opportunity to represent Wikimedia Kenya in the fundraiser this year.

I am sending this message to everyone I can reach at Wikimedia Kenya. Please let me know if there is a more formalized process to reach people.

Thank you for your time,

Victor Grigas

Superprotect status[edit]

Dear Baba Tabita, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.

Feedback needed from LangCom[edit]

Dear member of the Language Committee, can you please try to answer some of the messages on Talk:Language committee (and its archive)? Many people are asking for updates and indications about their requests, but they are almost never getting an answer of any kind. Candalua (talk) 12:29, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Dear, Oliver, a member of the Language Committee, I would like to encourage the Language Committee to provide any response for the requests on Talk:Language committee. --FuksuFuksas (talk) 20:58, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Tunisian Arabic[edit]

As shown in the new edition of Ethnologue, Tunisian Arabizi (One of the Latin Scripts used for Tunisian) has been recognized as a common script for Tunisian Arabic. As it is the most used script in Internet, we will use it in Wp/aeb. I have slightly modified this method so that it can be converted to Arabic Script. I have created a script converter for Tunisian Arabizi and I will implement it with explanations very soon. However, I need to test it before. So, you are invited to change the name of Tunisian Arabic in Latin Script into Tounsi and change the editing software of Tunisian Arabic Wikipedia into Left to Right format. Thank you in advance. --Csisc (talk) 16:21, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
