I just sent this to wikimedia-l, but would like to include translators-l as
well. This isn't a standard translation job at all, but this is still a
very diverse mailing list with members from many different communities, and
I'd like to invite you all to join us. Please also extend this invitation
to your community.

Hi, all!

The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize will be announced this Friday, and in
cooperation with Wikimedia Norge, the Nobel Peace Center
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Peace_Center> has invited Wikipedians
from the Norwegian Wikipedia community to an editathon to improve the
article about the winner(s?) as soon as possible. We'll be sitting
practically in the next room from where the announcement is made, updating
relevant articles as fast as we can.

For this to be a global event, I'd like to invite anyone who's interested
to join us in the IRC channel #wikipedia-nobel, where we'll be talking and
coordinating. We'll also try to livetweet the event using the hashtag
#wikinobel <https://twitter.com/hashtag/wikinobel>, probably mainly from
the account @WikimediaNorge <https://twitter.com/WikimediaNorge>.

The press conference will be start around 10:30 Norwegian time, which is *08:30
UTC*, like I said on *Friday, 10th of October*. Please join us, and help
spread this invitation to your community.
