(Apologies for crossposting.)
We're pleased to announce the 2nd edition of the *VisualEditor Translathon*.

It is a translation rally, focused on interface messages and help pages
related to VisualEditor [0].
In order to participate, you need to *sign up on the Translathon page* [1].
The top 3 contributors will each win a Wikipedia t-shirt of their choice
from the Wikipedia store [2].
Translations made between *July 15th and July 19th* (CDT time zone [3])
qualify [4].
If you are at Wikimania Mexico this year [5],  you are also welcome to join
a related sprint during the hackathon in *Workplace 1 - Don Américo,
Thursday 16 July at 4pm (CDT)* at the conference venue, so you can meet
other fellow translators and get support if you need some [6].

Interface messages have the priority. You will need to create an account at
translatewiki.net in order to work on them, if you don't have one. *It is
recommended to create the account ASAP*, so that it can be confirmed in

You can also help translate documentation pages about VisualEditor on
mediawiki.org. You can use your Wikipedia account to work there.
You will find instructions, links and other details on the Translathon page

Thanks for your attention, and happy translating!
Elitre (WMF) and Trizek (WMF)
