#Wikimedia #Incubator in more languages

On the Incubator, a lot of thought goes into providing the best functionality to the people who want a project in a new language. Often these people do not speak English. Providing information to these fledgling projects has so far been done in English; we did not really have an easy way of providing translations.

Today at Incubator, the Translate extension has been enabled. People who do know English are now able to translate essential information in their language. This will make it easier for people to find their way and work on the initial documents for a language.

With this functionality in place, it is also a great moment to update these documents. Spending time now saves time later. SPQRobin made the request, Niklas did the configuration and once Robin is ready it will be for the Incubator community to prepare the way for those people who do not know English.
Thanks,
