as last month, translations are wanted for the new edition of the
monthly "Wikimedia Highlights", consisting of
the most relevant information from the Foundation's general and
technical monthly reports for October, with a short selection of other
important news from the Wikimedia movement. Please consider helping
non-English-language Wikimedia communities to stay updated on the most
important WMF activities, MediaWiki development work and other
international news from the past month, by providing a translation at


With the help of Siebrand, we are trying out the new Translation
extension on Meta for this issue; see

useful to compare the translations done last month
), as the "Data and Trends" and "Financials" sections contain a lot of
recurring vocabulary.

As last month, it is planned to announce the translations (i.e. those
which have been completed at that point) on the general Wikimedia
announcements list Wikimediaannounce-l, on Wednesday November 16.

Many thanks!
