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.
Punjabi Wikisource is growing gradually, i.e. increasing in content and new users as well. Whenever a reader or new editor comes to Punjabi Wikisource, they are not able to get a clear idea without a virtual or on-site training on how they can start editing on Wikisource. With proper Guide in Punjabi language, new people will be able to self learn how to proofread, validate the works in a simple fashion.
To overcome the lack of on-wiki resources for Punjabi Wikisource, we are going to make written documents and video documentation(If possible) for:
- How to proofread
- How to validate
- How to transclude
- How to create Author pages
- How to connect Wikisource pages with Wikidata
The documentation for Punjabi Wikisource is needed to facilitate the newcomers to proofread, validate works and these documents will help them to learn the basic and advanced steps of Wikisource, which will help them gain clear perspective about Wikisource. This will save the time, energy and efforts during the offline/online events.
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?
