This is the text of a just published blog post summarizing the actions taken to protect users of Wikimedia sites against the recently discovered "Heartbleed" security vulnerability. (The post explains that users will need to re-login the next time they use their accounts and suggests to change passwords as a standard precautionary measure, but it is currently not intended to enforce a password change for all users.) Completed translations will be added to the blog post.

Création WikiDZ User group[edit]

Voila, je viens de rajouter la TODO list pour suivre les étapes à réaliser pour la reconnaissance du groupe et barrer ou cocher les choses au fur et à mesure qu'elles sont faites. --Oldstoneage (talk) 20:03, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Africa[edit]

Bonsoir

J'ai laissé quelques notes ici relativement au concours. Super que tu ais envie que l'Algérie s'implique !

Bon, dans l'immédiat... on se concentre sur lancer le concours (donc toute aide pour relayer l'information, auprès de la communauté, des bloggeurs, de la presse... n'hésite pas).

Aide pour la traduction des pages aussi... si tu peux/veux... sera bienvenu. Un mot de toi et je te fais une liste :)

Ensuite... même si l'Algérie ne fait pas partie des "focus countries", ça n'empêche pas de faire des choses. Dans tous les cas, le site notice sera visible par tous les algériens. Tu as envie de faire quelque chose de particulier ? Anthere (talk) 01:21, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

bjr

Bjr

je voie que vous avez bien avancés dans le projet et il ne reste que j-1 pour le lancement

On lance aujourd'hui ! Mais que cela ne te trouble pas pour la suite. On a pas fini la traduction en langue arabe et le communiqué de presse n'a été envoyé qu'en anglais à certains médias anglophones. On va dérouler dans la semaine à venir.

pour mon aide je suis toujours dispo a aider a traduire vers l'arabe

super ! Il reste à traduire des textes. Les messages du site notice ont visiblement été fait aujourd'hui ([4]). Il reste des pages wiki sur commons, à traduire ou à relire (voir ici: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Africa/ar). Et puis les pages du site http://www.wikilovesafrica.org (mais qui sont en large partie les mêmes que sur le wiki. Donc autant terminer le wiki et transférer ensuite sur le site)

si un communiqué de presse du concours existe -- je pourrais l'adapter a l'algérie et l'envoyer au différents relais de presse ici puisque le User group wikimédiens d'Algérie aka WikiDZ est en cours d'aprobation

Oui. C'est une très bonne idée. Il existe un communiqué de presse, en anglais et en français. Je vais t'ajouter le lien vers une page pour une version à traduire en arabe.

vous avez bien fait d'unifier le tout sous une seule interface j'aime bien

Merci :) (ce ne fut pas simple...)

que voulez vous dire par "focus coutries" ? l'Algérie participe et pour ce mois d'octobre je vais m'occuper ici de la promotion --Bachounda (talk) 15:13, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

C'est un peu artificiel. Nous savions que nous avions 4-5 personnes sur place dans divers pays pour organiser des évènements autour du concours. Nous avons ensuite fait un appel pour connaitre qui d'autres seraient intéressés. Nous avons eu un certain nombre de réponses. Nous avons fait une demande de financement à la WMF et nous avions choisi une liste de pays (assez ouverte). La WMF nous a demandé d'être plus "restrictifs" sur cette liste. Soit... Nous avons donc établi une liste précise, dite "focus countries". L'aide que nous proposons aux organisateurs dans ces pays est listée ici. Maintenant.... soyons clairs... la plupart des éléments listés ici... à partir du moment où ils existent (comme par exemple un dépliant promotionnel ou un communiqué de presse), s'ils existent pour les focus countries... ils existent pour les autres pays :) Pour ma part, j'habite en France, donc je ne suis pas dans un focus country, ce qui ne m'empêchera nullement de faire la promotion du concours ici. La seule chose réellement sur laquelle on ne pourra pas aider est le petit soutient financier pour l'organisation d'évènements puisque cela n'a pas été budgété. Mais tout le reste je crois... est fondamentalement public et ouvert à tous. Et pour ma part, je ne vois pas d'inconvénient du tout (bien au contraire !) à ce que l'on mentionne sur le site ce qui se fait dans les autres pays. J'espère bien que beaucoup de pays vont participer.
Je reviens te mettre quelques liens dès que j'ai créé les pages de communiqué de presse. Anthere (talk) 15:48, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Voili ! Press release en Arabe. A traduire de façon générique. Puis à adapter à vos besoins en Algérie (avec vos contacts presse etc. ). Merci !!! Anthere (talk)
J'oubliais... on a créé trois files sur otrs pour le cas où nous ayions des courriels; Une file en anglais, une en français et une en arabe. Pour l'instant, nous n'avons personne pour la file en arabe. Si répondre aux sollicitations/questions sur OTRS est quelque chose que tu accepterais de faire... signale le moi pour qu'on t'ouvre un compte. Tout le monde n'aime pas forcément faire cela, donc sens toi libre d'être volontaire ou pas. Anthere (talk)
Bonsoir; je vais faire 3 choses
Primo : finir la lecture du texte traduit et traduire le reste
Secondo : WikiDZ va soutenir le concour par contre le Nom Algérie a visibiliser même si elle n'est pas "Focus countries"
Tersio : otrs arabe ou français je peut le faire ; je suis partant
s'il est en français je peut le traduire plus facilement

--Bachounda (talk) 21:48, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Bon. Prenons les choses dans l'ordre.

  • le press release à traduire: Press release en Arabe. Je t'ai mis la version en français
  • le site web. J'en ai parlé avec Isla. Pas de souci. Peux-tu m'écrire un topo pour faire une page pays ? Genre [5]. L'essentiel est qu'il y ait des infos sur l'association et où vous contacter (lien vers page Facebook, twitter, site web etc.).
  • Par ailleurs, donne mes les coordonnées d'une personne à qui je puisse donner des droits d'édition sur le site (email).
  • Ensuite, ajoute des infos de contact presse ici: [6]. Ne te précipite pas... on a un souci avec le système de traduction automatique de la page. Le tableau passe mal... j'essaye de trouver quelqu'un qui puisse m'aider à résoudre le problème :(

Merci et à plus ! Anthere (talk)

bonjour

  • la presse release est en cours de traduction
  • le topo un texte en français / arabe /anglais (a relire) sera fait dans les 24h a suivre
  • des que je reçoit la réponse de Vikoula5 je vous met en contact il est capable de faire la mission d'edition et plus
  • les infos contact ajouté avec succes

merci a toi pour le soutien et bonne journée :) --Bachounda Med. (talk) 09:37, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Merci. Bé... pour l'ajout à la liste des contacts presse... nope; pas avec succès. Ca marche pour la version en anglais mais ça ne parvient pas à traduire en français (regarde la page en version française). Ce système de traduction me rend chèvre... C'est l'usage des tableaux qui met tout le bazar et je ne m'y connais pas assez pour corriger les boulettes. C'est agaçant. Anthere (talk)

C'est bon ! Anthere (talk)

Bon. J'ai déjà remanié le site pour qu'il clarifie l'aspect pays. Votre slot est prêt: http://wikilovesafrica.org/fr/pays/ Anthere (talk)

  • la presse release est deja traduite a 100%

Hello

Nous avons ajouté la Fondation Orange à la liste des financeurs du projet (car ils payent une partie du salaire d'Isla en particulier). Pourras tu le mettre à jour sur le communiqué de presse s'il n'a pas encore été envoyé ? Merci [9] Anthere (talk)

c'est le bon lien oui. Pour ma part... j'avais une grosse flemme et je ne comptais pas ajouter le traditionnel petit encart sur la Fondation Orange. Je pense qu'il est bon d'ajouter leur nom mais le financement est assez indirect. Donc... je pensais plutôt zapper le topo. Anthere (talk)

donc je retire le developpement des dit topo --Bachounda Med. (talk) 18:53, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Ready for translation: VisualEditor News #2—2015[edit]

VisualEditor-logo-pacifico.svg

Hi! This is an invitation to join translators working on the April's issue of the VisualEditor monthly newsletter, which will be widely delivered towards the end of next week. The previous bulletin was published in 26 languages—the translation was completed only for ten of them. Will we do better this month? We'd like to reach many more communities in their own language this time, as VE recently became the main editor at other 50+ Wikipedias, and we're announcing interesting developments (auto-fill features for citations, improved special character inserter, drag and drop for categories, invisible templates now marked by a puzzle piece icon, and more). Thanks a lot for your help! Elitre (WMF) 22:38, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

PS: Here are some instructions. Please go to the translation page: your language should be available from the drop-down menu on the right. Once you've selected it, you'll see the document in English side by side with any translation work already done in your language. You can add new translations or modify existing ones. If you need further help or would like to change the page where you're notified of future translations, please contact me directly.

Early invitation: join VisualEditor's 2015 Translathon[edit]

VisualEditor-logo-pacifico.svg

Hello!

You are invited to join the 2nd edition of the VisualEditor Translathon! It is a translation rally, focused on interface messages and help pages related to VisualEditor.

In order to participate, you need to sign up on the Translathon page. The top 3 contributors will each win a Wikipedia t-shirt of their choice from the Wikipedia store.[1] Translations made between July 15th and July 19th (CDT time zone) qualify.[2]

If you are attending Wikimania Mexico this year, you are also welcome to join a related sprint during the Hackathon in Workplace 1 - Don Américo, Thursday 16 July at 4:00 p.m (CDT) at the conference venue, so you can meet other fellow translators and get support if you need some.

Interface messages have the priority. You will need to create an account at translatewiki.net in order to work on them, if you don't have one. It is recommended to create the account ASAP, so that it can be manually confirmed in time.

You can also help translate documentation pages about VisualEditor on mediawiki.org. You can use your Wikipedia account there. You will find instructions, links and other details on the Translathon page.

Thanks for your attention, and happy translating! Elitre (WMF) 02:59, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

  1. You can choose between any short-sleeve shirt, or other items for the same value.
  2. This means both new translations, and updates for messages in the "Outdated" tab of the translation interface.

Translation notification: Community Capacity Development[edit]

Hello Bachounda,

You are receiving this notification because you signed up as a translator to العربية on Meta. The page Community Capacity Development is available for translation. You can translate it here:



The Wikimedia Foundation is beginning a new initiative called Community Capacity Development. In it, we have conducted some research about community capacities, and documented what we've learned in these pages we are now inviting you to consider translating.

We hope these pages can serve as a basis for very concrete conversation between WMF and specific communities about possible projects to build specific capacities in interested communities. The work is to be based on interest and mutual agreement, not on top-down dictates from WMF. That's why it's important these documents -- this page and the six sub-pages mentioned in the navigation bar at its top -- reach the different communities in their own language.

Thank you very much for your consideration, and please let me know if anything is unclear.

A message re: your subscription to the VisualEditor multilingual newsletter[edit]

Hello there! I noticed your name appears twice on VisualEditor/Newsletter. If you're OK with receiving the newsletter twice, that's fine by me :) However, should you want to change this, please notice:

  • en.wiki gets the newsletter earlier, because that's not translated into other languages. If you want to receive the newsletter on en.wiki, please suscribe to Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Newsletter instead;
  • if you want to get the newsletter in your own language (assuming a translation has been provided for that month), then please update your subscription to your talk page on your home wiki.

Hi everyone,

thank you for your work on translations for the Wikimedia movement.

Today I'm requesting translation of the page Free Bassel, which is to be the landing page linked from a CentralNotice banner campaign informing our readers about the dire situation of Bassel Khartabil, a fellow Wikipedia volunteer and open source software developer who might be facing death penalty imposed by the Syrian government.

Please kindly take some time to translate the page; I set 30 November as the deadline for the translation, but really do hope the page might be translated earlier than that, as Bassel's situation really is of the utmost urgency.

There is also the text of the banner waiting to be translated at <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Banner:Free_Bassel> -- and again, Arabic, French, Spanish, Portuguese and German are languages of top priority for us at the moment given their usage by the United Nations and their popularity in the world.

Comments, questions and suggestions are welcome at Talk:Banner:Free Bassel.

Thank you so much in advance for your work on this,

2015 Affiliations Committee call for candidates[edit]

This is an update from the Wikimedia Affiliations Committee. Translations are available.

Affiliations Committee logo.svg

The Affiliations Committee – the committee responsible for guiding volunteers in establishing Wikimedia chapters, thematic organizations, and user groups – is looking for new members!

The main role of the Affiliations Committee is to guide groups of volunteers that are interested in forming Wikimedia affiliates. We review applications from new groups, answer questions and provide advice about the different Wikimedia affiliation models and processes, review affiliate bylaws for compliance with requirements and best practices, and advise the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees on issues connected to chapters, thematic organizations and Wikimedia user groups.

The committee consists of twelve members, six of whom are selected every twelve months for staggered two-year terms.

Key skills

Being a part of the Affiliations Committee requires communication with volunteers all over the world, negotiating skills, cultural sensitivity, and the ability to understand legal texts. We try to get a healthy mix of different skill sets in our members. The key skills and experience that we look for in candidates are:

  • Excitement by the challenge of helping to empower groups of volunteers worldwide.
  • Willingness to process applications through a set, perhaps bureaucratic process.
  • Readiness to participate in political discussions on the role and future of affiliates, models of affiliations, and similar questions.
  • Availability of up to 5 hours per week, and the time to participate in a monthly ~2 hour voice/video meeting.
  • International orientation.
  • Very good communication skills in English.
  • Ability to work and communicate with other languages and cultures.
  • Strong understanding of the structure and work of affiliates and the WMF.
  • Knowledge of different legal systems and experience in community building and organising are a plus.
  • Effective communication skills in other languages are a major plus.
  • Experience with or in an active affiliate is a major plus.
  • Willingness to use one's real name in committee activities (including contacts with current and potential affiliates) when appropriate.

We are looking for people who are not afraid of the workload and are motivated by helping other volunteers to get organized and form communities that further our mission around the world.

Selection process

As a reflection of our commitment to openness, transparency, and bilateral engagement with the Wikimedia community, the 2015 member selection process will include a public review and comment period. All applications received by the committee will be posted on Meta (at Affiliations Committee/Candidates/2015), and the community will be invited to provide comments and feedback about each candidate.

At the end of the public comment period, the applications will be voted on by the members of the committee who are not seeking re-election, taking into account comments put forward by the committee's members, advisors, WMF staff and board liaisons, and the community. A final decision will be made by mid-January 2016, with new members expected to join later that month.

How to apply

If you are interested in joining the committee, please send an application to affcom@lists.wikimedia.org by 31 December 2015. You will get a confirmation that your application was received.

Your application should include the following:

  • Your full name
  • Your contact information (including e-mail address and username)

Hey translators, please see review and translate what you are able for this important consultation regarding Wikimania. Because part of the consultation is aimed at fundamentally changing how Wikimania is planned (even considering the possibility of making multiple events regional throughout the year rather than one global event), it's important that folks understand the options on the table. I've tried to prioritize only the most important parts of the consultation for translation, but if you want to translate more, please feel free to add translation tags and get in touch with me if you need me to reconfirm the page for translation. Please also see the discussion page, as we are requesting translations of the small number of survey questions. With thanks, User:I JethroBT (WMF).

Despite being a bit shorter than usual, it does feature important announcements, like the one about the single edit tab system, which people can already test and give feedback about.

- This is the part of a series of community consultation pages. The WMF Community Advocacy team has put together a list at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/2016_Strategy/Translations. We're hoping to launch the consultation on January 18th. Realizing getting all translations in place before the launch of the consultation may not be possible (and that people will likely help with translations after the launch), I'd be really grateful for any assistance especially that you can give in translating the templates at that Meta page link, like this one. It'll probably be harder for casual translators to help out with those!

- Text should be stable at this point. I've just made what I hope will be the last modification to those pages!

- Thank you for all you do, and I hope you will not only assist in translation (if you are able) but also take part in the consultation. Your input will be very welcome.

- Questions or concerns? Please let me know at mdennis@wikimedia.org. Thanks! Maggie

Hi translators, this is Jethro. The page here describes the outcomes of a recent consultation on Wikimania and movement conferences, for which the WMF will be publicizing on 8 Feburary. There are many very important changes coming for Wikimania beginning in 2018, and it's important that contributors from as many language backgrounds as possible are aware of them. In my judgment, it will be most important to translate the sections labeled "Summary," and "Next steps" be prioritized, but any translation you can provide for the more specific details on the page will be appreciated. Please contact me if you have any questions about the translation material. With thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 21:24, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Inspire Campaign on content curation & review[edit]

I've recently launched an Inspire Campaign to encourage new ideas focusing on content review and curation in Wikimedia projects. Wikimedia volunteers collaboratively manage vast repositories of knowledge, and we’re looking for your ideas about how to manage that knowledge to make it more meaningful and accessible. We invite you to participate and submit ideas, so please get involved today! The campaign runs until March 28th.

All proposals are welcome - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is welcome - your skills and experience can help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign to improve review and curation tasks so that we can make our content more meaningful and accessible! I JethroBT (WMF) 05:39, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Participate in the Inspire Campaign and help address harassment![edit]

NounProject Leaves.png

Through June, we’re organizing an Inspire Campaign to encourage and support new ideas focusing on addressing harassment toward Wikimedia contributors. The 2015 Harassment Survey has shown evidence that harassment in various forms - name calling, threats, discrimination, stalking, and impersonation, among others - is pervasive. Available methods and systems to deal with harassment are also considered to be ineffective. These behaviors are clearly harmful, and in addition, many individuals who experience or witness harassment participate less in Wikimedia projects or stop contributing entirely.

Proposals in any language are welcome during the campaign - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is appreciated, and collaboration is encouraged - your skills and experience may help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign so that we can work together to develop ideas around this important and difficult issue. With thanks,

Hello !

Dans le cadre du projet de Translate-a-thon, pourrais tu chercher de l'aide pour améliorer les versions anglophones des deux articles ci-dessus ?

BMJ account redistribution (The Wikipedia Library)[edit]

Hi - according to our records you received a free account for BMJ through The Wikipedia Library. Because we’ve used up all of our allocated accounts, and it’s been some time since they were distributed, we want to redistribute any accounts that aren’t being used to users on our waitlist.

If you’re still using, or plan to use, your BMJ access, no problem! Simply head over to the Library Card platform, log in, and request a renewal of your account. You should be able to do this from your user page, or the BMJ signup page. If you can’t find the renewal button, or have any other issues or questions about this, please feel free to leave a message on my talk page. We’ll begin redistributing inactive accounts in a few weeks; if you request renewal after then we should still be able to reactivate your account if we have spots remaining. Thanks, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 12:16, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

[Wikipedia & Education User Group] Updates: November 2018[edit]

Greetings,

Integrating Wikimedia with education is a powerful strategy for the outreach of Wikimedia projects. Realising this concept, a group of leaders promoted this and formed the Wikipedia Education Collaborative. After some time, this evolved to become a user group, officially recognised by the Affiliations Committee in June 2018. The user group had its first board elections earlier in September. In the process to formalise activities and give a shape the user group for long-term sustainability, we are now revamping our processes. Thanks for supporting us during incubation stages, we are now inviting you to formally join the user group by following the instructions on the members' page. Being a member will allow you to be a part of this wonderful collaboration and also do interesting stuff.

Kind regards

The candidate for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is asking you to support his candidacy![edit]

Hi Bachounda,
I ask you and your local organization to consider my candidacy for the candidates for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. I myself put forward my candidacy for this election. I ask you to support my candidacy, as I have a strategic vision of the next. Each of the foreign language sections of the Wikimedia Foundation project must receive the widest support. This will ensure an increase in the content of your linguistic local of the Wikimedia Foundation projects. Other linguistic local communities of the World can count on the same support. Also, I believe that all foreign language sections of the Wikimedia Foundation projects that are less powerful than English speakers should have the same chance for the rapid growth of their local projects.
In case you and your local organization support my candidacy. Then, I ask you to write this in my profile of the candidate for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. You can write this in the "Endorsements" section of my candidate profile.
Thank you for your attention!
Kind regards,Yithello (talk) 10:09, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for your message and your interest in our user group.
