Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

Let’s translate together 100 articles in an hour. Content Translation makes it easy to translate articles and with people from around the World in Wikimania it is a great opportunity to make Wikipedia content available in more languages. Those interested in learning about the tool can join us and learn how to translate missing articles into as many languages as possible.

This is a hands-on session, so you’ll need to bring your laptop.

Come and ask your questions about Content Translation too. Here you can ask the team how to use the tool for your language, and report any issues you may find. If you are an experience translator, we are also interested to hear your feedback about the tool so far. That helps us to make the tool even better
