Community organization[edit]

The WP:Village pump is often an excellent place to look for help, but not always. Sometimes Facebook groups or other talk pages are the best source for help.

As a community organizer your role is to a build a bridge between the main translation project, and the local language branch. Examples of how to work with community organization would be:

  • Looking for new integrators
  • Informing the community about the project
  • Looking for barriers and trying to find out what stops people from helping out
  • Informing integrators when there is a new article ready
  • Looking for translators
  • Assessing content - does it need to be translated? Marking on the progress pages
  • Updating the progress pages, making sure that live translations are marked as such.

Resources[edit]

  • Progress pages
  • WP:Village pump – From the English village pump you can find your way to various other Village pumps by looking in the left hand corner for inter-wiki links!
  • WP:MTNEWS – The Medical Translation Newsletter
  • WP:PULSE – WikiProject Medicine's Newsletter

There is no clear path for community organization, and you can pick multiple roles.
