Wikisource:Esplanada/Community Tech Launches Wikisource Improvement Initiative
Apologies for the broken links in the previous message. This message is in English, but we encourage translation into other languages. Thank you!
We hope you are all healthy and safe in these difficult times.
The Community Tech team has just launched a new initiative to improve Wikisource. We will be addressing five separate wishes, which came out of the 2020 Community Wishlist Survey, and we want you to be a part of the process! The projects include the following:
- Improve ebook export
- Improve OCR tools
- Migrate Wikisource specific edit tools from gadgets to Wikisource extension
- Inter-language link support via Wikidata
- Insert attestation on Wiktionary using Wikisource as a corpus
For the first project, the team will focus on the #1 wish: improve ebook exports. We have created a project page, which includes an analysis of the ebook export process. We now invite everyone to visit the page and share their feedback on the project talk page. Please let us know what you think of our analysis; we want to hear from all of you! Furthermore, we hope that you will participate in the other Wikisource improvement projects, which we’ll address in the future. Thank you in advance and we look forward to reading your feedback on the ebook export improvement talk page!
