Collaborative translations: documentation, software, content[edit]

  • Input for the conference programme:
    • Valuable learnings:
      1. Which different areas are there where contributing to translations is possible.
      2. How to choose the right tool for the job.
      3. Ways of getting CEE users to work together.
      4. Interest in a CEE meeting regarding everything about translations, be it documentation relevant to CEE, software localisation in languages relevant to CEE, or content translations to and from projects in languages relevant to CEE.
    • Tools:
      • Translate extension: Software localisation (MediaWiki, MediaWiki extension used by Wikimedia wikis)
      • Translate extension: Page translation (meta, Wikimedia Commons, mediawiki.org, Wikidata, ...)
      • Content Translation: Translation of Wikipedia pages
    • Low-cost project:
      • Translation related events are easy to organise, and both on-line and off-line event types are possible. Prizes may increase participation and volume, with the warning that heavy gamification can also lead to unwanted side-effects, most likely a shift from quality to quantity.
  • Strengths (or what you are doing well): We have the right tools for the job.
  • Weaknesses (or what you could use help with): We need to keep communicating the possibilities and make sure that each community, be it language related to topic related, has champions that spread the knowledge in their own communities.
