Update links from Incubator to local[edit source]

Some links on the FA blurb are still external to the incubator project. (Also, if we could get some more templates and modules imported from enwiki, like en:Template:Documentation, that would be great. Maybe we can raise it on Meta so someone with more experience can import/recreate them with dependencies?). MSG17 (talk) 19:32, 23 August 2023 (GMT)Reply[reply]

Also, the page is using a Portuguese map, instead of the English file: File:Ghana Regions map.png MSG17 (talk) 19:35, 23 August 2023 (GMT)Reply[reply]

Ghana Month Edit-a-thon[edit source]

Dear Ghanaian Pidgin Wikipedia Community,

We are excited to announce a month-long initiative aimed at enhancing gender representation on the Ghanaian Pidgin Wikipedia. This project, organized by the Ghanaian Pidgin Wikimedians Community, seeks to address the underrepresentation of notable female personalities on our platform.

Project Objectives:

1. To increase the visibility and representation of Ghanaian women on the Ghanaian Pidgin Wikipedia.

2. To create a more inclusive and diverse portrayal of Ghanaian history and culture.

3. To engage the community in actively contributing to articles related to notable female personalities.

Planned Activities:

1. Editing Workshops: Hands-on workshops to teach participants how to contribute and edit articles on the Ghanaian Pidgin Wikipedia. Guidance on creating and improving articles related to notable female personalities in Ghana.

2. Panel Discussions: Featuring gender activists, notable female personalities, and Wikimedians. Discussing the importance of gender representation and its impact on knowledge diversity.

3. Content Creation Competition: A friendly competition encouraging participants to create or improve Wikipedia articles. Incentives such as awards, certificates, or recognition for outstanding contributions.

4. Outreach Events: Awareness campaigns at media stations with urban reach using Ghanaian Pidgin. Emphasizing that Ghanaian Pidgin is a written language, encouraging public participation.

5. Closing Ceremony: An in-person event at the end of the month to celebrate achievements. Showcasing edited articles, sharing success stories, and expressing gratitude to participants.

Significance of the Project: Gender representation is a crucial aspect of creating a comprehensive and diverse narrative. By actively participating in this initiative, you contribute to breaking gender stereotypes and fostering a more inclusive portrayal of Ghanaian history and achievements. Your involvement is instrumental in making a positive impact on the Ghanaian Pidgin Wikipedia community.

Enabling Section Translation: a new mobile translation experience[edit source]

Hello Ghanaian Pidgin Wikipedians!

Apologies as this message is not in your language, Please help translate to your language.

The WMF Language team is pleased to let you know about our plans to enable the Section translation tool in Ghanaian Pidgin Wikipedia. For this, our team would want you to read about the tool and test it so you can:

  • Give us your feedback
  • Ask us questions
  • Tell us how to improve it.

Below is background information about Section translation, why we have chosen your community, and how to test it.

Background information

Content Translation has been a successful tool for editors to create content in their language. More than one million articles have been created across all languages since the tool was released in 2015. The Wikimedia Foundation Language team has improved the translation experience further with the Section Translation. The WMF Language team enabled the early version of the tool in February 2021 in Bengali Wikipedia. Through their feedback, the tool was improved and ready for your community to test and provide feedback to make it better.

Section Translation extends the capabilities of Content Translation to support mobile devices. On mobile, the tool will:

  • Guide you to translate one section at a time in order to expand existing articles or create new ones.
  • Make it easy to transfer knowledge across languages anytime from your mobile device.

Ghanaian Pidgin Wikipedia seems an ideal candidate to enjoy this new tool since it has a Content Translation tool enabled by default.

We plan to enable the tool by 15th of February 2024, if there are no objections from your community. After it is enabled, we’ll monitor the content created with the tool and process all the feedback. In any case, feel free to raise any concerns or questions you may already have in any of the following formats:

  • As a reply to this message

Try the tool

Before the enablement, you can try the current implementation of the tool in our testing instance. Once it is enabled on Ghanaian Pidgin Wikipedia, you’ll have access to https://gpe.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ContentTranslation with your mobile device. You can select an article to translate, and machine translation will be provided as a starting point for editors to improve.

Provide feedback

Please provide feedback about Section translation in any of the formats you are most comfortable with. We want to hear about your impressions on:

  • The tool
  • What you think about our plans to enable it
  • Your ideas for improving the tool.

Thanks, and we look forward to your feedback.
