Swahili is absolutely on the list! We will have translation requests coming out for a few new editor banners shortly that we need help translating. Please visit here --Deniz (WMF) 23:24, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Barua ya Jimmy Wales
Salaam, Limoke! Hivi barua hiyo ulitafsiri mwenyewe au ulitumia mashine?
Silipwi hata senti kwa kazi yangu kwenye Wikipedia, pamoja na maelfu ya watu wengine wanaojitolea kuhariri na kuandika.Nilipoanzisha Wikipedia, ningeifanya kuwa kampuni ya faida kwa mabana ya matangazo ya biashara.Lakini niliamua kufanya kitu tofauti.
Biashara ni nzuri.Matangazo ya biashara si uovu .Lakini haina mahala hapa.Haina makao hapa.Sio katika Wikipedia.
Wikipedia ni kitu spesheli. Ni kama maktaba au hifadhi ya umma.Ni kama hekalu kwa akili. Ni mahala sisi wote huenda kutafakari,kusoma,kushiriki maarifa na wengine. Ni mradi wa binadamu wa kipekee,wa kwanaza kwenye historia.Ni mradi wa kibinadamu wa kuleta kamusi elezo huru kwa kila binadamu duniani.
Iwapo kila mtumizi wa zaidi ya watumizi Milioni 400 wa Wikipedia 400 angechangia $5, tungepiku kiwango cha hela tunazoitaji mara 100. Sisi ni shirika dogo, na nimejizatiti kwa miaka kuhakiksha and I've worked hard over the years to keep us lean and tight. Sisis hutimiza ujumbe wetu na kubakisha taka kwa wengine.
Kuafikia hapa bila matangazo ya biashara twakuitaji.Ni wewe unayekimu ndoto hii.Ni wewe umetengeza Wikipedia.Ni wewe unayeamini mahala pa kutafakari na kusoma ni thamani pawepo.
Mwaka huu,tafadhali tafakari kufanya mchango wa $5, $20, $50 au chochote unachoweza kulinda na kukimu Wikipedia.
Ninayo ambayo bado mistari kama minne hivi. Labda tungetumia ukurasa wa majadiliano wa barua ile tupate kuchambua kwa pamoja na wale watu wa Wikipedia ya Kiswahili (hasa dada Eleri kutoka Welisi) ambaye anacheza nafasi kubwa katika tafsiri hizi za meta-translatewiki. Ni mawazo tu! Ili kufanya kitu cha maana zaidi... Wako Muddyb au,--Wikipedian (Activist) 13:31, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
- Samahani MuddyB kwa kutotumia ukurasa wa majadialiano.Sikudhani ingetokea vibaya hivyo.Ni sawa twawe kutumia makala ya majadilaiano.Kutafsiri kidogo kumenipiga chenga.Nmetumia staili ya Kingerea moja ka moja...:-) Mpmayenge 13:40, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
- Mayenge: tafadhali tazama http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Fundraising_2011/Jimmy_Letter_001/sw ambapo utaweza kuona ile barua niliyokwamba. Tafadhali tujadiliane!--Wikipedian (Activist) 04:12, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
- I think we may have misunderstood each other.because i too had finished the translation and I thought you asked me to reconsider my translation because it was poor or something.Anyway glad the letter is ready.Cheerr Mpmayenge 14:30, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!
Hi! I just want to thank you and give you this barnstar for your help with the translation of the 2011 fundraiser! The fundraiser was the best we ever had, both in terms of the amount we collected and in terms of number of translations. We couldn't have done either one without the help we got from you and other translators. If you are interested, we made a report, which has some statistics about the translations.
And: I have one more request, and that is that you take this survey. You may have got an e-mail about it, and if you did, please ignore this. But if you didn't it would be great if you would take this survey too, so we can learn to improve the translation experience.
Again, thanks for your help with translations – you're awesome! Jon Harald Søby (WMF) 14:27, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
Kenyan Wikipedian Stories
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,
