Hi everyone,

On Saturday 28 January 2012 at 18.00 UTC there will be a workshop
Translation tools. It will take between 60 and 90 minutes, and consist
of an introduction of use cases and features, as well as a Q&A.

The workshop will focus on the use cases covered by the Translate
extension on Wikimedia Meta-Wiki for the following user roles:
* writers: those that write texts that need to be translated
* translation administrators: those that marks pages for translations
and post-process translations when they have been made

Please put the following page on your watchlist and write your name
down if you would like to attend:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Translation_tools_workshop,_2012. The
workshop is held online using WebEx. I would advise you to log in 15
minutes in advance to ensure you have ample time to set up your
computer if you have not used WebEx before. WebEx can be used in
desktop environments on Linux, OSX and Windows. Details are here:

If you would like to familiarise yourself with the technology before
the workshop, please take a look at the elaborate documentation, that
include some tutorials:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Extension:Translate. In the next
two weeks, the already present documentation for translators will also
be completed.

Credits go to Pete for proposing to have this workshop. Hope to see
you online Saturday!
