Hi Translators!

There has been a big push recently on work within Wikimedia to create
& distribute offline projects relating to Wikipedia to extend reach
into those areas of the world which lack consistent access to
Internet.  Much work has been done in this arena in English: resulting
in lots of pages about the project almost exclusively in English.

Recently, progress has been made in creating a selection of offline
articles for use in schools from the Spanish Wikipedia, and an Offline
Portuguese version is also in discussion.  As such, it would be great
to help facilitate these language projects through the expansion of
the Offline Projects page on meta:


Casey went through and added the navigation template to the pages, and
it would be incredibly useful and helpful to expand upon the languages
in which the information regarding this project are offered.  All
languages are eagerly welcome, but *Spanish & Portuguese* specifically
are requested.

Like almost all our wiki-pages, the timeline is open-ended, but it
would be ideal to get the Spanish & Portuguese versions done by the
*end of June*: prior to the Ibero-American Summit.

Thanks so much for your help - please do reach out to me with your
questions (and/or if you are interested in broader involvement with
the offline work!) -
