The 2023 LinguaLibre Editathon and Translations is an mini IRL / online gathering organized by Wikimedia France in order to create a dedicated time to push Lingualibre outreach, public relations and communication. The event is organized in support to 2022–2023 Service Civique. This is in line with and a very helpful step for our 2023 draft program.
- Objectives: Lingualibre:Mailing currently gathers a dozen of use-cases relative to specific publics or partners to outreach to. We aim to
- rapidly draft a dozen of outreach email templates, adapted to those identified typical use cases.
- flag those templates for translation into major macro-languages such as EN, FR, AR, ES, CN, IN, HI, RU, CN. Minority languages would also be encouraged. Possible rapid translation can be initiated via a duo of Google Translate + requesting rapid review from native speakers. This method has proven efficient in the past.
- the result will be an outreach toolkit of a dozen of typical emails, available in multiple languages, ready to tinker and email to interested linguistic communities.
- Dates: 2023.02.01 (Wednesday 1st, February). 10h-13h et 14h-18h.
- Place: mostly online, maybe also at Wikimedia France office, Paris.
- Format: 1 days (Wednesday), but you can join on earlier or later days.
- Mailling: Melody & Yug.
