#Wikidata - the #beta label lister


At the hackathon of #Wikimania2014, work was done on a new version of the label lister. It is a gadget that allows you to edit labels and aliases in other languages. It proved to be an indispensable tool to me. Today I learned that the new label lister is now available.

The most wonderful thing is that it became much more compact, you do not need to click as much anymore and it "just works". In the screenshot you see Mrs Bundschuh, she is a former member of the Landtag of Bavaria, and as you can see it is trivially easy to add a label in your language.

I hope that functionality like the label lister will make it into a core feature of Wikidata.
Thanks,
