If you can translate articles into Italian - great!
Did you see here a thread about translating articles into French?:
forum.susana.org/component/kunena/198-wi...n-19th-21th-of-march

That group of students from Cranfield has made a selection of some articles to start with. If that list appeals to you, perhaps you could take the same list and do some Italian translations?

Also, like I just wrote in the French thread:
This page 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 Italian Wikipedia:
it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Traduzioni

I hope this helps a little bit.

Have you registered yet at the Outreach Dashboard for this event so that we can track outcomes?

Great to have you on board! Like I just mentioned in my reply to Abby above, please register for the edit-a-thon with your Wikipedia user name at the so-called "Outreach Dashboard" which helps us to track who's in the group and who's doing what.
Click here to register:
outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org/courses/Su...2017?enroll=xjwmpagf

Then you asked the good question where to list your interest to work on that page: "Water supply and women in developing countries".

I would say:
  1. you can assign that page to yourself in Outreach Dashboard
  2. You could write on the talk page of the article to indicate to other Wikipedians what you have in mind to change there: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_supply_and_w...developing_countries
  3. You could also start a new forum thread about it if you want to get more inputs from other SuSanA members.
  4. Another option (although I don't know if this will turn out to be practical) is to add your interest and user name here on the Wikpedia Meetup page where the articles are listed: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/S...#Articles_to_work_on

This is the first edit-a-thon that we (SuSanA members) run, so we are learning what works best as we go along.

We need your expertise!

Please sign up to join on the SuSanA Wikipedia Edit-a-thon page here. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/S...A_Platform_Worldwide

The committee has made some how-to-videos that I find very helpful. This is a good page to bookmark and refer to while editing. www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0gMdVBup...-hIwDT1oeZd4mn-syMLm I find it quite hard to remember everything and am happy we don't have to.

It's evidence-based sustainable sanitation that works that we need. Working Group 9 is also interested in awareness materials, advocacy case studies, translation, videos in local languages and all the ways the info can reach the public.
