As of today, and up to and including next Monday, http://translatewiki.net
is having its second ever Translation Rally[1]. As an incentive to our
translators, we are dividing 1,000 Euro over all translators that contribute
500 or more new translations to MediaWiki or its extensions.

This Translation Rally has kindly been made possible by a grant from the
International Projects fund of the Dutch Wikimedia chapter Vereniging
Wikimedia Nederland[2] to Stichting Open Progress[3], that coordinates the
financial aspect of the Translation Rally.

We call on all non-English speakers to take part in this Translation Rally
and make it as big a success as possible, so that MediaWiki can stay one of
the best localised pieces of software in the known universe. The first
Translation Rally ended with 35 translators meeting the requirements[4], and
some 20,000 new messages were translated over the regular stream. A success
we could not have imagined. We dare you to do even better this time.
