Invitation translationEdit

Γειά σας!

Αυτό το μήνα περίπου xxx εικόνες μεταφορτώθηκαν από το ίδρυμα GLAM στο Wikimedia Commons. Όλες απεικονίζουν το yyy (δείτε τις εικόνες εδώ), με σύντομη ερμηνεία. Θα ήταν θαυμάσιο αν μπορούσαν να χρησιμοποιηθούν στη Wikipedia zzz-γλώσσα, ή οπουδήποτε όπου αλλού υπάρχει σχετικό κείμενο ή λήμμα.

Παραδείγματα για το πώς θα μπορούσαν να χρησιμοποιηθούν:

Thank you so much, @Kalogeropoulos:. However, the text that needed translation was the Specific for Swedish Cyprus Expedition images. Do you have time to look at that one too?
BTW, I transferred your translation to Connected_Open_Heritage/Get_Involved/Volunteer_Tasks/Image_use_invitation/el. Thanks again! Eric Luth (WMSE) (talk) 13:04, 26 September 2017 (UTC)


Τον Φεβρουάριο του τρέχοντος έτους, περίπου 600 εικόνες από τα Σουηδικό Μεσογειακό Μουσείο μεταφορτώθηκαν στο Wikimedia Commons. Όλες απεικονίζουν την Σουηδική αποστολή στην Κύπρο από το 1927 έως το 1931 (δείτε τις εικόνες εδώ), όταν η Κύπρος ερευνήθηκε από Σουηδούς αρχαιολόγους. Θα ήταν θαυμάσιο αν μπορούσαν να χρησιμοποιηθούν στην ελληνική Βικιπαίδεια ή οπουδήποτε αλλού, όπου γράφεται η Κύπρος και η ιστορία της.

Μπορείτε να τις βρείτε σε αυτή την κατηγορία στα Commons.

Re:Wikimania AmbassadorEdit

Hi Eric, how are you? Of course, I ve already signed up. Thank you for the invitation.--Jalu (talk) 14:42, 13 February 2019 (UTC)


Dear Eric, thanks for the invitation to take part in WikiGap Challenge. We are running WikiGap in Ukraine and our local page informs about it as well. Still, there few moments on the challenge that do not cause excitement. Challenge is set up to consider only numbers, this makes the process of defining winners really easy. But what about the quality? There was a lack of information on the 2019 Number one winner contribution, so I made my own observations especially given that he was from my Wikipedia and language was not a problem. User:Андрій Гриценко produced only translations, many of them were translations of the translations. Thus we got a big batch of bad-quality translations that still ned to be fixed. Not much fun. So, It would be really nice to think about the mechanism of preventing participants from rushing with producing numbers to get the prize. One of the possible ways is to consider the number of created articles per day. Do you think it is possible to create 40 good articles (even if stubs) per day? That what we could witness last year. I don't know about the human intellectual potential with this, but number 30-40 seems beyond it to me. and one can reach this only producing automated translations. And another thing I would like to see at the challenge result is at least some information about what kind of women roles challenge winners were promoting and contributing. I was really curious about that and made my own research. 42% of articles out of 360 were about actresses- a profession that is far from being unpopular as for women, as for Wikipedia contributors (but this is only an opinion, and I understand that the challenge does not make difference between an article about actress and article about scientist). I hope you will bring more "behind the numbers" information this year. Today we have many tools for this. None the less thank you and Wikimedia Sweden for the opportunities and motivation you give to the Wikipedians all over the world!--Anntinomy (talk) 17:05, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

Anntinomy: Thanks so much for your input! We have been thinking a lot on how to make the barriers low while still maintaining decent quality, a balance which is quite hard to do – especially since our experience so far is that challenges are encouraging for newcomers, who may lack the experience on how to do long and deep articles. We will evaluate this closely after the challenge is over, and I would be happy to have your inputs and thoughts in that phase! Best Eric Luth (WMSE) (talk) 09:16, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
