Participants / GalleryEdit
Participants from Nepali and Doteli community has participated in this one day workshop. Initially, participants were not aware about the SVG translation. The workshop was started with the basics of SVG translation following the translation of SVGs and contribution to the commons. During the one day workshop 46 images in total have been translated (35 images were translated in Nepali and 11 images in Doteli). Thus I can say that this workshop is able to spread the awareness of SVG translation among the Wikimedians of Nepal.
Besides the good number of translations, few things did not work well. The first thing that did not work well is the the participation from Maithili community, there was no participation, which was not expected. Again, because of the parallel events of Wiki Women Editathon and Wiki Loves Birds held in the month of March the participation was little less as I expected in the plan. Besides all these things, the workshop goes very well and was able to need the goals set.
