International Mother Tongue Day

For me, the high point of the International Mother Tongue Day was the request for the fourth and final part for the localisation of MediaWiki in Telugu. I am really impressed with all the hard work that makes such a difference for the usability of our projects.

It is a well established fact that providing information in someone's mother tongue is most effective. With a Wikipedia where both the User Interface and the content are available in the same language we provide the best environment possible. When this is realised it is "just" a matter of maintaining and improving the quantity and quality of the project.
Thanks,
