Votre message non traduit me semble faire preuve d'un certain manque de respect envers les contributeurs francophones de Wikipédia qui ne parlent pas l'anglais. Sachez que le Bistro des non-francophones est prévu pour les non francophones et attend vos messages dans la langue que vous voudrez ! 126.96.36.199 23:23, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
Merci pour votre réponse. Because my French is very poor, I must answer here in English. The Wikipedia 15 materials are available for any and all translation. We welcome your additions!

Wikipedia promotion in India
This is an extremely important initiative which I fully support. I have today commented on it in connection with the EN Wikipedia's Women in Red talk page as follows:
- "I found the recently updated version of Wikipedia awareness interesting and pertinent to our own WiR interests. In particular, efforts to increase awareness of Wikipedia in India by means of a video in Hindi are likely to increase interest substantially (cf. progress in Nigeria). Recent figures show that over three quarters of people in India have never even heard of Wikipedia. (Surprsingly Wikipedia is best known in Spain (91%), better than in the United States (87%) and Britain (83%.) I think we should actively try to follow up on this initiative, possibly by including India as a priority in our future editathons and keeping abreast of any physical editathons in India itself. Maybe Rosie or others involved in Wikimedia planning could liaise with those involved to emphasize the need to include women in the Hindi-based initiatives to promote Wikipedia. We could also try specifically to involve Indian women students in propagating information about our activities and the support we offer."
