Toolhub announcement ready for translation

James Hare-5
Hello everyone,

I have prepared an announcement for the new Toolhub project. My plan is to eventually send it out to every Village Pump and every project equivalent to "Project talk:Tools" according to Wikidata <https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q6584911>. Let me know if you think there are other discussion areas worth reaching out to.

The message of the announcement is <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Harej_(WMF)/Messages/Toolhub_announcement>. I will not be making any further changes, so I would like to invite you all to work on translating it.

Your help will ensure that we can reach as many people in their preferred languages as possible, allowing us to in turn build the most inclusive product possible. The content of the message is not terribly time sensitive, and I want to avoid sending English messages to non-English wikis if I can help it, so I am happy to delay sending out the message to a given wiki if more time will allow for that message to be translated.

Please let me know if any details should be clarified. I don't have a deadline for sending this out quite yet but I'll let you know once there is one.

Thank you so much!

Re: Toolhub announcement ready for translation

Thank you everyone for your translations  – we have seven translations from English so far. A great start!

I changed one of the words from plural ("questions") to singular ("question") and this seems to have had the effect of invalidating the translation of that whole paragraph. I am sorry for this – I hope it does not create too much extra work. The text of the message should otherwise be stable.

I would like to begin sending out the messages to the wikis on June 1. If a deadline extension will help get translations for certain languages, please do let me know; otherwise, I will be sending out the translations as of June 1.

To update everyone, I have now sent out messages to Wikipedia (English, Arabic, Catalan, French, Hindi, Swedish, Ukrainian); Wikisource (Catalan, English, French); and Wikivoyage (English, French). Thank you everyone for helping!

Japanese and Polish – I am waiting on a very minor change to the translation. Once it is made I can send the message to Japanese and Polish Wikipedias.

I would love to see the message translated into more languages, so it is not too late to translate. As always, I am available if you need me to clarify anything.


Cheers,
James Hare
