Hi everyone,
//
Bonjour !

We are a team of Cranfield University MSc students working with SuSanA in the support Wikipédia Edit-a-thon event. Within the team, we are one Ghanaian, one Malawian and two French. SuSanA wants to improve cooperation with francophone. Therefore, the team defined a list of 13 top articles to create or edit in French during the Edit-a-thon ! Be aware that for most of them the French page is inexistant and need to be created.
//
Nous sommes un groupe d'étudiants de l'université de Cranfield assistant l'équipe de SuSanA pour le marathon d'édition sur Wikipédia du 19 au 21 Mars.
L'équipe est constituée d'un Ghanéen, d'un Malawien et de deux Français.
SuSana cherche à améliorer la coopération entre des différentes communautés linguistiques et en particulier entre les communautés francophone et anglophone. Notre équipe a donc défini une liste de 13 articles à créer ou éditer en Français durant cet événement.
Gardez à l'esprit que la majorité des articles retenus sont inexistants en Français et nécessitent donc d'être créés.

Here is the List :
//
Voici la liste :

Behavior Changes (Public Health)
Open defecation
Ecological Sanitation
Fecal sludge management
Sustainable sanitation
WASH
World toilet day
Organic fertilizer
Reuse of excreta
Helminthiasis
Urine-diverting dry toilet
Global Handwashing Day
Menstrual hygiene day

We are still open for feedbacks and eventual changes.
//
Nous restons ouverts aux retours et à vos éventuelles critiques.
Merci d'avance pour votre future contribution.

The Cranfield Team.

Dear July and Cranfield student team!

Thanks for your bilingual post - great!

I agree with your selection of articles to focus on. Furthermore, only two of the articles in your list already exist in French:
  • Ecosan
  • WASH

Actually both of them don't really exist: The one on ecosan is only one sentence long.
And the one on WASH has a "see also" link which points to Watsan, which has a bit of information. WASH, Watsan - same thing. Therefore, I think you should have a redirect from Watsan to WASH, like we did in English:

WASH
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Watsan)


A redirect is super easy to do in Wikipedia, you just need to add this command in source editor at the top of the empty page:
#REDIRECT [WASH]]


If anyone needs help with such redirects, just let me know.

So much work to be done on the French Wikipedia on WASH topics... Great if you and others could make a start! Do use the translation tool that Wikipedia has created so that the links and references remain intact if you translate from an English article.

Elisabeth

  • I support sanitation projects that result in sustainable toilets for households and schools. Currently, my largest project is a grant funded by the Dutch government titled, "Private and Social Toilets" (PRISTO).

What a great project--- getting more pages translated into French is an important effort.

I was looking something else up in Wikipedia and came across this page which looks helpful for new people wishing to translate articles (perhaps you have already seen it):
meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Meta:Babylon/Tra...translators/Articles

Many Wikipedias have their own guidelines for how to handle translations.
See here the guidelines from the French Wikipedia:

fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aide:Traduction

I hope this helps a little bit.
