Hello translators!

Wikimedia Italia asks your help to translate the subtitles of our 
instructional videos (aka WikiGuide); you can find the translation 
requests pages from 
<http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Italia/WikiGuide> (Wikipedia, 
Commons, Wikisource). All languages are appreciated.
This is especially needed for our last video for Wikisource, 
(we need also English proofreading here).

We use Commons to translate subtitles, see the help page there: 

As you may know, WikiGuides are brief (~7 min) professional 
instructional videos designed to give readers and new editors a general 
overview (easy but precise) of how Wikimedia projects work. They're 
collaboratively written (and translated) and produced by Wikimedia 
Italia as part of the general Wikimedia movement outreach efforts 
(http://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Bookshelf_Project ).

Subtitles will be immediately available to users on Commons and will be 
published all together on YouTube on *June, 19* by Aubrey (but also 
after that, if he spots them/you notify him).

Contact Aubrey on Meta, whatever you need: 
Wikimedia Italia would also love to help you to further localize the 
videos (e.g. dubbing them, translating and re-using the script to 
completely remake them in another language), and to receive all sorts of 
feedback (e.g. how to make future videos more easily localizable): 
contact Aubrey!

Thank you very much for your help,
