Project idea edit

What is the problem you're trying to solve? edit

  • Russian users don't understand or can't benefit from freely licensed dictionaries, even though the Russian Wiktionary is one of the most successful.
  • Female editors seem more likely to contribute on collaborative dictionaries other than Wiktionary, in particular Multitran.

What is your solution? edit

Investigate what made Multitran successful (probably the same things which worked in some Wiktionaries: mass imports and easy editing). Implement some missing things in the Russian Wiktionary. Attract more users and/or make Multitran users import their contributions on Wiktionary.
