Looking for Wikipedians/Wikimedians in Cairo[عدل]

hello! I am a user of Italian Wikipedia and Commons. I am travelling to Cairo next month and I would like to get in touch with the local wikipedian/wikimedian community. I especially would like to ask some support about the rules of taking pictures in Egypt to upload to Commons. I am one of the most active commoneers (+200.000 files uploades, mostly about art and architecture, many photos of mine are used here in arabic wikipedia too!) and would like to ask if you think there is a chance to get an authorization to make pictures for Commons in the Cairo Museum. It's a bit difficult for me to ask as I don't understand arabic. I'll give you more details and longer presentation later. Thanks for your help!

Wikimania 2016 scholarships ambassadors needed[عدل]

Hello! Wikimania 2016 scholarships will soon be open; by the end of the week we'll form the committee and we need your help, see Scholarship committee for details.

If you want to carefully review nearly a thousand applications in January, you might be a perfect committee member. Otherwise, you can volunteer as "ambassador": you will observe all the committee activities, ensure that people from your language or project manage to apply for a scholarship, translate scholarship applications written in your language to English and so on. Ambassadors are allowed to ask for a scholarship, unlike committee members.

Wikiproject Erasmus Prize Winners[عدل]

Dear fellow wikipedians,

My apologies for using English here, please help translate if you are able.
Wikipedia has been awarded the Erasmus Prize 2015. This prize is awarded annually to a person or institution that has made an exceptional contribution to culture, society or social science. The King of the Netherlands will present the award on 25 November. This will create media attention which will hopefully result in plenty of new volunteers. Prior to the award ceremony we would like to write and improve articles on former Erasmus Prize winners. All 80 former laureates should be notable enough to merit an article.

Please join the project and help us provide our fellow laureates with articles.

Your input requested on the proposed #FreeBassel banner campaign[عدل]

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!

Get involved in Wikipedia 15![عدل]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

International-Space-Station wordmark blue.svg

As many of you know, January 15 is Wikipedia’s 15th Birthday!

People around the world are getting involved in the celebration and have started adding their events on Meta Page. While we are celebrating Wikipedia's birthday, we hope that all projects and affiliates will be able to utilize this celebration to raise awareness of our community's efforts.

Haven’t started planning? Don’t worry, there’s lots of ways to get involved. Here are some ideas:

Everything is linked on the Wikipedia 15 Meta page. You’ll find a set of ten data visualization works that you can show at your events, and a list of all the Wikipedia 15 logos that community members have already designed.

If you have any questions, please contact Zachary McCune or Joe Sutherland.

Thanks and Happy nearly Wikipedia 15!

2016 WMF Strategy consultation[عدل]

Please help translate to your language

Hello, all.

The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) has launched a consultation to help create and prioritize WMF strategy beginning July 2016 and for the 12 to 24 months thereafter. This consultation will be open, on Meta, from 18 January to 26 February, after which the Foundation will also use these ideas to help inform its Annual Plan. (More on our timeline can be found on that Meta page.)

Your input is welcome (and greatly desired) at the Meta discussion, 2016 Strategy/Community consultation.

Apologies for English, where this is posted on a non-English project. We thought it was more important to get the consultation translated as much as possible, and good headway has been made there in some languages. There is still much to do, however! We created m:2016 Strategy/Translations to try to help coordinate what needs translation and what progress is being made. :)

If you have questions, please reach out to me on my talk page or on the strategy consultation's talk page or by email to mdennis@wikimedia.org.

I hope you'll join us! Maggie Dennis via MediaWiki message delivery (نقاش) 19:06، 18 يناير 2016 (ت ع م)

The visual editor is coming to this wiki[عدل]

Norwegian-road-sign-110.0 (fluorescent).svg

Hello. Please excuse the English. Please help translate to your language. شكرا لك!

Hi everybody,

My name is Erica, and I am a Community Liaison at the Wikimedia Foundation. I'm here to let you know that the visual editor is coming to editors at this Wikipedia soon. It allows people to edit Wikipedia articles as if they were using word processing software.

You don't have to wait until the deployment to test it; you can test the visual editor right now. To turn it on, select "تجريبي" in your preferences. Choose "المحرر المرئي" and click save. When it is enabled, you will press the "عدل" button to edit an article in the new software. To use the wikitext editor, you can press "عدل المصدر".

After the deployment, everyone will automatically have the option to use either the visual editor or the current wikitext editor. For more information about how to use the visual editor, see mw:Help:VisualEditor/User guide.

More information about preparing for the visual editor is posted here.

Thank you, and happy editing! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 18:29، 5 فبراير 2016 (ت ع م)

Twemoji 23f0.svg

Hello again. Please excuse the English. Please help translate to your language. شكرا لك!

This is a reminder that the visual editor is coming to all editors at this Wikipedia soon. As of this writing, the team is not aware of any issues specific to this language that should prevent the new software to be deployed here; therefore, please do let us know if you find any problems instead. You can report issues in Phabricator, the new bug tracking system or on the central feedback page on MediaWiki.org. There is a short guide at mediawiki.org that you can follow (as if it was a "checklist") to learn about the community work necessary to adapt the visual editor, and its referencing system in particular, to your community's needs.

If you can translate from English into this wiki's language, or know anyone who can, please follow the links below; just a little effort is required to make this language progress toward translations' completion! You'll help your community get the best possible experience when it comes to interface messages and documentation related to the visual editor. After you click on any links, your language should be available from the drop-down menu on the right. Once you've selected it, you'll see the document in English side by side with any translation work already done in your language. You can add new translations or modify existing ones. The interface is hosted at https://translatewiki.net; you'll need an account if you never translated there before. The other pages are at Mediawiki.org, for which you can use your regular Wikipedia account. You're welcome to contact me personally whenever you need help.

Thank you for your cooperation, and happy editing! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 16:35، 26 فبراير 2016 (ت ع م)

ستختبر مؤسسة ويكيميديا أحدث مراكز معلوماتها في مدينة دالاس. وذلك للتأكد من أن ويكيبيديا ومشاريع ويكيميديا الأخرى ستظل متصلة بالإنترنت حتى بعد وقوع كارثة. للتأكد من أن كل شيء على ما يرام، تحتاج إدارة ويكيميديا التقنية لإجراء اختبار مدروس. وهذا الاختبار سيظهر إذا ما كان يمكنهم التبديل بين مراكز البيانات. ويتطلب ذلك من العديد من الفرق الاستعداد للاختبار وأن يكونوا جاهزين لإصلاح أي مشكلات غير متوقعة.

سوف تحول كل حركات الاتصال إلى مركز البيانات الجديد يوم الثلاثاء 19 أبريل/نيسان.
أما في يوم الخميس 21 أبريل/نيسان، ستحول حركة الاتصالات مرة أخرى إلى مركز البيانات الرئيسي.

وللأسف، وبسبب بعض القيود على ميدياويكي، سيتعين وقف كافة أعمال التحرير خلال هذين الانتقالين. ونحن نعتذر عن هذا الانقطاع، وسنعمل على تقليل حدوثه في المستقبل.

سيمكنكم القراءة، ولكن لا يمكنكم التعديل، على كل مواقع الويكي لفترة قصيرة من الزمن.

  • لن يمكنكم التعديل لفترة تتراوح بين 15 و30 دقيقة يومي الثلاثاء 19 أبريل/نيسان والخميس 21 أبريل/نيسان، بدءا من الساعة 14:00 بالتوقيت العالمي (15:00 بالتوقيت البريطاني الصيفي، 16:00 بتوقيت وسط أوربا الصيفي، 10:00 بتوقيت شرق الولايات المتحدة، 07:00 بتوقيت المحيط الهادي النهاري).
  • إذا حاولتم تعديل أو حفظ أي شيء في تلك الأوقات، فسوف ترون رسالة خطأ. نأمل أن لا تضيع أية تعديلات خلال تلك الدقائق، ولكن لا يسعنا أن نضمن ذلك. إذا رأيتم رسالة الخطأ، يرجى الانتظار حتى يعود كل شيء إلى سابق عهده. وبالتالي ستقدرون على حفظ التعديلات. ولكن، من المستحسن أن تنسخوا تعديلاتكم قبل إرسالها، على سبيل الاحتياط.

الآثار الأخرى:

  • الأعمال في الخلفية ستكون بطيئة وبعضها قد يتوقف. قد لا تحدث الروابط الشبكية الحمراء بالسرعة المعتادة. لو أنشأتم مقالة مربوطة بالفعل بمكان آخر، سيظل الرابط الشبكي أحمر اللون لفترة أطول من المعتاد. كما سنضطر لوقف بعض النصوص البرمجية طويلة الأجل.
  • كما سيكون هناك فترة وقف للتكويد خلال الأسبوع الذي يبدأ بتاريخ 18 أبريل/نيسان. لن تستخدم أية أكواد غير ضرورية في تلك المدة.

كان الموعد الأصلي لهذا الاختبار هو 22 مارس/آذار. أما التواريخ الجديدة فهي كلا من 19 و21 أبريل/نيسان. يمكنكم الاطلاع على الجدول الزمني المحدد على wikitech.wikimedia.org وسينشروا أية تعديلات على هذا الجدول الزمني. سيكون هناك المزيد من الإشعارات حول هذا الموضوع. يرجى مشاركة هذه المعلومات مع مجتمعكم. /User:Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 20:55، 17 أبريل 2016 (ت ع م)

Additional machine translation support enabled today for Content Translation[عدل]

Hello, machine translation support for Content Translation (beta feature) has now been extended for users of Arabic Wikipedia and in addition to Apertium, Yandex has also been enabled. It can be used when translating Wikipedia articles into Arabic with Content Translation. To start using this service, please choose ‘’Yandex.Translate’’ from the ‘’Automatic Translation’’ dropdown menu that you see on the sidebar after you start translating an article. Please note, machine translation is available from all the languages that are supported by Yandex.Translate, but Content Translation can still be used in the usual manner for translating from all languages, with or without machine translation support.

Wikimedia Foundation’s Legal team and Yandex had collaborated earlier to work out an agreement that allows the use of Yandex.Translate without compromising Wikipedia’s policy of attribution of rights, privacy of our users and brand representation. Since November 2015, Yandex machine translation has been used for articles translated for Wikipedias in many languages. Details about Yandex translation services, including a summary of the contract are available on this page. More information about the machine translation services in Content Translation is available on this page. We request you to kindly take a look at these pages.

We have tested the service for use on the Arabic Wikipedia, but there could be unknown problems that we are not aware of yet. Please do let us know on our Project Talk page or phabricator if you face any problems using Content Translation. This message is only in English and we will be very grateful if it could be translated into Arabic for other users of this Wikipedia. Thank you. On behalf of WMF Language team: --KartikMistry (نقاش) 10:57، 27 أبريل 2016 (ت ع م)

KartikMistry،‏K thank you for spreading the news, I think we'll have to do some tests before we urge users to use it, because we really are suffering from the automatic translation, that some users use google translate and leave the text as is. Hopefully with this new tool, things will be better. -- Mervat Salman راسلني 19:18، 1 مايو 2016 (ت ع م)

The importance of translating topics for Arab diasporas[عدل]

The Metro Times ran an article about problems at a charter school (a type of independent public school) in Detroit, Michigan, a city with a large Arab immigrant population. The article talks about the language difficulties faced by a Yemeni girl.

""Miss?" she turned to her teacher Asil Yassine whose classroom she was working in. "What's a GED?"

Yassine, a second-year teacher at Universal, says she was surprised by the question and explained that a GED was a high school equivalency diploma, a way for people who didn't finish high school to still get credit. "You don't need to think about that, though," she laughed.

Sitting on a plastic-covered couch in her family’s living room, Etab is shaking as she recalls what happened next; how she started crying as she told her teacher about the statement she had written out and signed hours earlier.

"I am Etab Ahmed want to finish the high school through GED. And do not want to continue at Universal Academy - Etab Ahmed 11/10/15""


She was tricked into signing a statement which said that she was to leave the school.

We want to make sure Arab immigrants and expatriates are well-educated about their new countries of settlement, so it's important to translate articles about institutions and concepts important to Arab immigrants, no matter their religion or nationality.

JavaScript[عدل]

Hi. I can see that this project has old JavaScript that needs to be updated. I would happily make the required updates myself, but I would have to – at least temporarily – become an admin here to do that (because the relevant pages are in the MediaWiki namespace). I have already made these updates on a number of other projects, so it would be very easy for me to do this. If no one does anything, some JavaScript-related tools will break later this year. If you want me to make these updates, you can grant me admin rights and I will make the updates as soon as I can. Nirmos (نقاش) 02:17، 2 يونيو 2016 (ت ع م)

Content Translation - Community consultation[عدل]

Content Translation is an article creation tool that has been in use since January 2015. Content translation helps users translate existing articles from one Wikipedia into languages on other Wikipedias where the article does not exist. It is used by editors to write many new articles, increasing participation by new users and also renewing active editing in many Wikipedias. Translated from existing articles, 88000 new articles with considerably rich content have been written using this tool. Content Translation is an opt-in beta feature. We are now preparing to take Content Translation to a bigger group of users by taking the tool out of beta feature on a few Wikipedias. We prepared a preliminary list with the following wikis: Arabic, Catalan, Chinese, Hebrew, Indonesian, Japanese, Norwegian (Bokmal), Persian, Portuguese, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, and Ukrainian. This set of wikis were selected to create variations in size, language groups, and usage patterns of Content Translation.

Based on an earlier consultation with the editors of the Catalan Wikipedia, the earliest adopter of this tool, the Content Translation team have prepared a preliminary set of requirements that we consider should be fulfilled before the tool is ready for use outside of beta. To focus on the features and concerns that are most important for users of Content Translation, we would like to get more feedback. We are hosting a consultation from June 8, 2016 to June 22, 2016 on this village pump.

As we work on the tool it is being improved every day, but we are particularly looking to better understand the issues in Content Translation that make the tool unusable or add extra workload for our editors. Please let us know on this topic thread. During the conversations, we may point you to Phabricator tickets for ongoing work, so that you can track the status of work. For new issues we will create new Phabricator tickets to help the development team keep the details documented.

Wikipedia to the Moon: voting has begun[عدل]

Hello, after six weeks of community discussion about Wikipedia to the Moon, there are now 10 different proposals for content for the mission. Starting today, you can vote for them on Meta-Wiki, and decide what we will work on: a Wikipedia canon, different lists, the Moon in 300 languages, an astronomy editathon, featured articles, articles about technology, endangered things, or DNA-related topics. You can even vote against community involvement. Voting is open until 24 June. Sorry that this message is again in English only, but we are using village pumps to reach as many communities as possible, so that everyone knows they can vote.

Wikipedia to the Moon: invitation to edit[عدل]

Three weeks ago, you were invited to vote on how to take Wikipedia articles to the Moon. Community voting is over and the winning idea is to send all ‘’featured articles and lists’’ to the Moon. This decision means that, starting today, Wikipedians from all language communities are warmly invited to intensively work on their best articles and lists, and submit them to Wikipedia to the Moon. The central site to coordinate between communities will be Meta-Wiki. You will find an overview and more information there. Hopefully, we will be able to represent as many languages as possible, to show Wikipedia’s diversity. Please feel kindly invited to edit on behalf of your community and tell us about your work on featured content!

Compact Links coming soon to this wiki[عدل]

Please help translate to your language

Screenshot of Compact Language Links interlanguage list

Hello, I wanted to give a heads up about an upcoming feature for this wiki which you may seen already in the Tech News. Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since 2014. With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article (see image). This will be enabled as a feature in the coming week for all users, which can be turned on or off using a preference setting. We look forward to your feedback and please do let us know if you have any questions. Details about Compact Language Links can be read in the project documentation.

Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this announcement and as a result it is only written in English. We will really appreciate if this message can be translated for other users of this wiki. The main announcement can also be translated on this page. Thank you.

Compact Language Links enabled in this wiki today[عدل]

Please help translate to your language

Screenshot of Compact Language Links interlanguage list

Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since 2014. With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article (see image). Based on several factors, this shorter list of languages is expected to be more relevant for them and valuable for finding similar content in a language known to them. More information about compact language links can be found in the documentation.

From today onwards, compact language links has been enabled as the default listing of interlanguage links on this wiki. However, using the button at the bottom, you will be able to see a longer list of all the languages the article has been written in. The setting for this compact list can be changed by using the checkbox under User Preferences -> Appearance -> Languages

The compact language links feature has been tested extensively by the Wikimedia Language team, which developed it. However, in case there are any problems or other feedback please let us know on the project talk page. It is to be noted that on some wikis the presence of an existing older gadget that was used for a similar purpose may cause an interference for compact language list. We would like to bring this to the attention of the admins of this wiki. Full details are on this phabricator ticket (in English).

Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this announcement and as a result it is only written in English. We will really appreciate if this message can be translated for other users of this wiki. Thank you.
