The Design Research
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Research/Design_Research> team at
the Wikimedia Foundation is seeking volunteers to participate in a series
of interviews
content translation on Wikipedia. The goal of the study is to understand
how experienced translators find and select articles to translate from one
Wikipedia to another. The results of this study will help improve automated
article recommendation tools for content translators.

We would like to speak to editors who have experience translating articles
across Wikipedia languages. The only requirements for participating in this
study are:

a) the editor must have previously translated at least one Wikipedia
article to or from English and one of the following languages: Catalan,
Farsi, French, Italian, Spanish, or Swahili.

b) the editor must be available to speak with a WMF researcher over Google
Hangout; if you haven't used Google Hangouts before, don't worry, we will
walk you through it. Your participation will take no preparation, and all
you have to do is show up at the Google Hangout with your laptop/desktop
ready to go.

Each study session will be approximately 50 minutes in length, and can be
scheduled at a time that works for all participants. If you're interested
in participating, please reply to this message with your availability (be
sure to note your time zone). Thank you for helping us improve content
