Hi, I'm Anna! I'm a Brazilian wikimedian who started contributing with a project called Translation outreach: User guides on MediawWiki.org thanks to a three-month internship in the community provided by Outreachy, and currently works with a cultural preservation project called Tainacan, which is developed in a partnership with the Brazilian government; a diversity and inclusion consultant, proudly involved with the internship program that started my professional career; and an Information Systems undergraduate.
Notable contributions as a wikimedianEdit
Internship with Wikimedia (2017-2018)Edit
In an unprecedented initiative with two Community Liaisons, Johan Jönsson and Benoît Evellin, I dedicated three months to studying the internationalization and localization culture and practices on Wikimedia projects, in particular user guides on MediaWiki.org. In my analysis, I investigated aspects related to the writing of technical documentation, internationalization and localization of the software and its documentation, English fluency of the speakers of the 25 most used languages on Wikimedia projects, easiness to new contributors to join the project as technical translators (and how we welcome them), and the usability of the translation tool (Extension:Translate). My findings were published on my page dedicated to the project on MediaWiki.org, an article on the official Wikimedia Foundation blog, and on a final report.
