Translators[edit]

One of the greatest strengths and challenges of Wikimedia is its multilingualism. Likewise for Wikimania. The event generates hundreds of pages of announcements, information, and materials, and attracts interest from media and community members speaking dozens of languages. If you are interested in looking after Wikimania materials in your language (not alone! with help :), please add yourself next to your language below.

Translation coordinators - we could use a number of coordinators; this is thirsty work.

Translators (by target language).

to get involved with translation, contact one of the active coordinators above, or see the current translation requests.
