Details of team members (optional)

Tell us about your proposed project. What will you get achieved with this time?
Describe why you think this project is important, and how the project is different from your normal volunteer contributions. I've noticed that most of Wikicite projects are only available in English. As a meetup and hackathon organizer, I really know the importance of having well-written documentation for developers. Being from a french-speaking country, I know how difficult it is for friends to join OSS. In this project, I want to help them get started without any language difficulty with Wikicite code. I want to provide complete french documentation for **Scholia** and **Citation.js**, Wikicite tools I know and I use.
Describe how you (and, if applicable, your team)are able to achieve this project. What skills, expertise, and motivation do you have which will enable you to succeed? I'm a software engineer and a community influencer. I run meetups, hackathon, and most OSS related activities.
