Explain your planEdit

I'm an active contributor to Punjabi Wikipedia, also to other projects. I have been an editor on Wikipedia for the last 20 months and I'm also an Administrator on Punjabi Wikipedia. At Present, all activities done by me with my mobile phone. With the help of the laptop, I will be able to use many tools which I couldn't use earlier on my mobile like AutoWikiBrowser etc. With this equipment, the main focus will be to improve content on TranslateWiki because their are less translations in Punjabi language and i cannot translate these messages with my mobile phone. And i'm interested to contribute in Punjabi Wikisource and to improve the current templates on Punjabi Wikipedia. With this equipment, my contribution to WikiProjects will jump exponentially.

  • Punjabi Wikipedia (pa.wikipedia.org)
  • WikiSource (wikisource.org)
  • WIKIDATA (wikidata.org)
  • TranstaleWiki (translatewiki.net)

  • The laptop I received by Hardware Donation Program helped me a lot. I am very thankful. As I mentioned in the application I was a mobile editor and this is the first laptop that I am using. With the help of this laptop, I participated into:
  1. Local community meetups
  2. Wiki Women for Women Wellbeing 2018
  3. Wikipedia Workshop MM Modi College, Patiala
  4. Punjabi Wikisource Training Workshop, Patiala
  5. Project Tiger Training 2018
  6. Bathinda Literary Festival

Now, I am using this laptop and this is working well. Thank you very much. - Satpal Dandiwal (talk) 10:51, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
