Wikidata Tours - beyond "Items" and "Statements"
Hi Lavinia and Wikidatans,
Besides the Wikidata Items and Statements' Tutorials here -
when might the other tutorials mentioned on this Wikidata Tours' page - for References, Qualifiers, Ranks, Special Values, for example - be coming, and especially inter-lingually ?
Lavinia, Helena, and Wikidatans,
Thanks and great. These tours - https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Tours - and developments are a great help! ... My take on these tours is that CC Wikidata/Wikipedia's abundance - now in 288 languages - has been be informed by the ease of anyone creating articles, or editing them, and in any of 288 languages, thanks to wiki information technologies, and that future Wikipedia generativity will be facilitated by "ease of anyone creating articles," and in any language. As the amazing Wikidata (still in its infancy at around 2 years' old) and related wiki structured data develop, I hope these tours will focus on this generative ease.
As a further take, and in addition to "Items and Statements, as well as References, Qualifiers, Ranks and Special Values" I'd like to see two further more general (perhaps) tours ...
How to create an article now with Wikidata and the above tours (so that anyone can easily create one interlingually - e.g. an example), with, say, possibly four languages in mind, for example?
Hot to add a new language (7,106 languages minus 288 languages equals 6,818 further languages to add in Wikipedia) now with Wikidata and the above tours (so that anyone can easily create one inter-lingually - e.g. an example), with, say, possibly four languages in mind, for example? ...
focusing on the ease and openness of anyone simply adding them. (Does such tours or similar already exist?)
And is it possible even to anticipate a tour which might inform the development of an Universal Translator (e.g. http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/WUaS_Universal_Translator) for all 7,106+ languages (e.g. http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Languages).
This would indeed be a grand tour!
Thanks again for this great work.
Scott ; with such a giant idea of a universal translator App, world ventriloquism will join US in cyber-communalism.
What's the language to the good Starship Enterprise to say beam me up financially? :)
And how might one add ventriloquilijism to an universal translator App with 7,106 languages, - plus some living, some dead, some invented and some computer languages, sign languages, in addition to other species' communications and inter-species' communications ? :)
Yay for 'team' Harbin's funky alternative communalism vibe,
Thanks for your email as Language Engineer at the Wikimedia Foundation.
CC WUaS would like to begin to build inter-lingually in CC MediaWiki/qLabel/Wikidata/Wikibase/SemanticWiki based on this main WUaS SUBJECT TEMPLATE - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/SUBJECT_TEMPLATE - in many languages.
So, specific Subject pages' names (http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Subjects) would get translated into other languages - with their correspondent - entities, items, properties and queries, etc. - as well as the subsections of the SUBJECT TEMPLATE -
(e.g. ===Select Courses===, ===Select Books===, ===Select Video and Audio===, ===Select Navigation=== etc.).
This could first occur in a few languages, then into all 288 of Wikipedia's current languages, and then plan for some main WUaS subject pages eventually to be translated into 7,106 languages, for example, for open teaching and learning MIT OCW-centric wiki schools, as well as a Universal Translator, for example - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/WUaS_Universal_Translator - and much more.
Then people will be able to wiki-add CC MIT OCW and CC Yale OYC translated courses' to the appropriate WUaS subject in the appropriate language - http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/ - and people will also be able to openly teach, learn and create using the above open wiki Subject pages.
So people in many languages can wiki contribute translations, and they would be synchronized through CC MediaWiki/qLabel/Wikidata/Wikibase/SemanticWiki.
How might I further make clear "how to contribute translations and how are they synchronized"?
A few days later:
Hi sporadic Universitians,
In #wikidata-office hours in IRC just now, where many decision conversations emerge in Wikidata, I was able to share some WUaS resources/links about WUaS's beginning (not yet in Wikidata) wiki:
- "Sailing" subject / school planned for large languages,
and about WUaS's plans for
- "All Museums" and
- "All Libraries" -
e.g. planned to aggregate ALL open online libraries in each of ALL languages.
I'm particularly glad to have been welcomed to do so by Denny and Lydia, two key Wikidata folks.
The transcript is below. Scroll down to the links check out these links themselves, and add your ideas ...
In case you missed it here is the log:
A quick overview of past and future development work is at the end.
