[X-posted announcement]


The Language Engineering team of the Wikimedia Foundation has been working
on a tool for easy translation of Wikipedia articles from one language to
another. The Content Translation tool has been in development since early
2014 and in July it was deployed and opened for testing on beta labs. The
tool currently provides an editing interface, limited machine translation
capability, link and reference adaptation and dictionary support. The first
rollout included machine translation support from Spanish to Catalan. Since
then, the tool has been used to create more than 100 new articles for the
Catalan Wikipedia.

On 5 September 2014, the team will be hosting a round-table conversation
with some of the editors from the Catalan Wikipedia who have been using
Content Translation. The online event is scheduled from 1600 UTC to 1700
UTC. We would like to invite everyone to join us (please use the event url
below) and add your questions to know more about this project. The same url
can be used later to view an archived version of the event.

Thank you.
