Facilitators : Amir E. Aharoni (User:Amire80) Time block : Start :
Location : Duration : 1 hour or more
Description :

Massive multilingualism is one of the most notable characteristics of Wikipedia, Wikidata, and all other Wikimedia projects. But it's not just the content that is massively—it's the software, too. Wikimedia projects have convenient tools, in which anyone who can read in English and write in another language can help make the software work fully in that language. The central tool for this is translatewiki. Everyone who can write in Arabic or in any language other than English, and who wants to help improve the MediaWiki software support in that language, is welcome to do it.

Theme : Localization
Key words : language, translation, user experience
Notes :
Intended outcomes :

Participants will gain advanced knowledge about localizing Wikimedia's software features into Arabic (and other languages), and during the workshop they will practice it.
