2021:Submissions/How can I help? Reviving a wiki of which I do not speak the language

From Wikimania


Speakers[edit | edit source]

Abstract[edit | edit source]

Keywords: Papiamentu Wikipedia - Wikidata - Mediawiki - underrepresented language

I consider myself an experienced Wikimedian, with 15 years of volunteer work under my belt. In November 2020 I was asked to help to bring the Papiamentu Wikipedia back to life: how did I go to work, how did I (soon 'we') prioritize, and after 9 months, what are the results?

I will be talking about how to get people new to the community involved, about Mediawiki, Translatewiki, Wikidata, and how the five pillars were a basis for designing wiki policies.

I'm planning to attend this session live![edit | edit source]
