Wikimedia Diversity Conference: We need your help![edit]

Dear User:Jetam2,

Thank you for signing up to be an ambassador for Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2017! Some of the conference pages are now marked for translation. Please consider translating these pages to the languages you know so that people around the world can read about Wikimedia Diversity Conference in the languages they are familiar with. Please click on the 'Translate this page ' link on top of the main page of the conference to start translating! We are grateful that ambassadors like you are striving to make the Diversity Conference truly global and multi-linguistic. --Netha Hussain (talk) 15:07, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

Wikimedia diversity - What happened at the conference and how to follow up[edit]

Hello Jetam2,
We are messaging you now because you signed up as an ambassador for Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2017. We are sharing this message far and wide, so apologies in advance if you are receiving this message twice.

During the conference, we dedicated a full afternoon to discussing the strategic direction and what it means for the work on diversity in the Wikimedia movement. Compiling the outcomes of those conversations, we summarized the key problems and solutions identified, and we created a summary statement. But the conversation is far from over! We still need to hear from diversity ambassadors: (1) what does working for diversity mean at your local context?; (2) what are the needs that should be addressed; (3) what resources are relevant for these identified needs?

We know that diversity gains meaning in context, and this is why we need to hear every voice. Please take a few minutes to go over to the diversity conversation page and add your comments.

If you’d like to stay in touch, and share your experience working for diversity with others, add your profile on our group here.

Thank you and see you on the wiki,
Sara (talk)

Translation request[edit]

Hello, I understand you speak the Slovak language. I was wondering if you can translate "Village in China", "Commune in Morocco", and "village in Indonesia". It is for updating Wikidata. Thanks in advance. --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 02:28, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

Hello. I do, yes. "Village" as in something that has autonomy (municipality) or something that is just a settlement?--Jetam2 (talk) 07:33, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
oh, in english, village is usually a municipality that has autonomy, but smaller than city. I was looking around to see if Slovak has a corresponding word and I think it would be best to compare sk:Modra and sk:Most pri Bratislave as sk:Mesto (Slovensko) and sk:Obec (slovenská správna jednotka). However, I understand other languages don't really have a distinction so, up to you. Thanks. --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 22:57, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
Well, "Obec" means a municipality. In Slovak law it could be either a city or a village. Municipalities ("obec") can be granted a city charter, thus going from (just) an "obec" (informally "dedina") to a "mesto". In informal language "obec" is used to talk about a village-style settlement as opposed to a "mesto" which is used for a city/town-style settlement. Or in other words: rural settlements are informally called a "dedina", all municipalities are "obec" and some of them (the urban ones) are "mesto". Since village as a style of settlement is called "dedina" then "village in China" would be "Dedina v Číne". "Commune", I think is a synonym for "municipality" so it should be "Obec v Maroku" and "Village in Indonesia" should then be "Dedina v Indonézii" if it is a village-style settlement. I hope it made things clearer rather than less clear.--Jetam2 (talk) 19:19, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
