First of all, let me thank everyone who has already helped to
translate the banner and the landing page.
The first phase of the deployment is going to happen in two days, and
we especially need to translate the banner into these two languages,
whose wikis will be affected first:
* Esperanto (eo):
* Hebrew (he): https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/CentralNotice/Generic_maintenance_notice#he
Although it's less urgent, we'll soon need the other languages as
well, so please take a look at
and help with the remaining translations. Most of the time, there's
only a sentence to translate to complete the translation.
Many thanks for your help,
