as every month, translations are wanted for the new edition of the
"Wikimedia Highlights", consisting of the most relevant information
from the Foundation's general and technical monthly reports for April,
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

For Danish, German, Finnish, French, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian
(Bokmål), Dutch, Polish, Vietnamese, Finnish, Russian, Hungarian and
Macedonian, it is useful to compare the earlier translations
), as the "Data and Trends" and "Financials" sections contain a lot of
recurring vocabulary.

As usual, 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, May
16. (On the suggestion of some, trying out a longer timespan of seven
days this time - it's of course always a balance between giving
translators enough time and getting the translated versions to readers
not too long after the end of the month.)

We are also posting them as language- and country-targeted updates of
the official Wikipedia Facebook account, which reaches a large
audience, and will experiment with promoting them on other social
media channels as well.

Many thanks!
