Salvete omnes, I'm looking for support to be able to tidy up Latin Wikibooks at the Porta communis; if anyone feels able to add a comment I would be very grateful! Multas gratias, JimKillock (disputatio) 10:33, 14 Aprilis 2024 (UTC)Reply

"Transkribus: Latin Incunabula" added; help with columns

recensere

Salvete. Wikimedia have added the "Latin Incunabula (Reichenau)" model to Transkribus OCR. I requested this for De proprietatibus rerum. So far, it's working impressively.

I have a question, though. When you have two columns on a page (here, for example), Transkribus interleaves the text of the two. I can make it take a column at a time by restricting the OCR to the area of that column on the page, but that feels like a workaround. Isn't there an option to tell it to look out for columns? Marnanel (disputatio) 14:08, 21 Aprilis 2024 (UTC)Reply

Just acknowledging this request. I have no idea tbh but will take a look to see what I can work out. JimKillock (disputatio) 19:18, 24 Aprilis 2024 (UTC)Reply
I think you will need to raise this with the Transkribus team or the Wikimedia implementers of it. It seems the different engines available are better or worse with recognising columns, but of course you are restricted to a particular engine. [EDIT] There may also be ways to tell the engines about where the columns are, but it is well beyond my ability to understand what those options are JimKillock (disputatio) 19:28, 24 Aprilis 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hello all,

The next language community meeting is scheduled in a few weeks - May 31st at 16:00 UTC. If you're interested, you can sign up on this wiki page.

This is a participant-driven meeting, where we share language-specific updates related to various projects, collectively discuss technical issues related to language wikis, and work together to find possible solutions. For example, in the last meeting, the topics included the machine translation service (MinT) and the languages and models it currently supports, localization efforts from the Kiwix team, and technical challenges with numerical sorting in files used on Bengali Wikisource.

Do you have any ideas for topics to share technical updates related to your project? Any problems that you would like to bring for discussion during the meeting? Do you need interpretation support from English to another language? Please reach out to me at ssethi(__AT__)wikimedia.org and add agenda items to the document here.

We look forward to your participation!

Dear community members,

The Community Affairs Committee (CAC) of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees invites you to give feedback on a draft Procedure for Sibling Project Lifecycle. This draft Procedure outlines proposed steps and requirements for opening and closing Wikimedia Sibling Projects, and aims to ensure any newly approved projects are set up for success. This is separate from the procedures for opening or closing language versions of projects, which is handled by the Language Committee or closing projects policy.

You can find the details on this page, as well as the ways to give your feedback from today until the end of the day on June 23, 2024, anywhere on Earth.

You can also share information about this with the interested project communities you work with or support, and you can also help us translate the procedure into more languages, so people can join the discussions in their own language.

On behalf of the CAC,

Hello everyone,

After carefully tallying both individual and affiliate votes, the Charter Electoral Commission is pleased to announce the final results of the Wikimedia Movement Charter voting.  

As communicated by the Charter Electoral Commission, we reached the quorum for both Affiliate and individual votes by the time the vote closed on July 9, 23:59 UTC. We thank all 2,451 individuals and 129 Affiliate representatives who voted in the ratification process. Your votes and comments are invaluable for the future steps in Movement Strategy.

The final results of the Wikimedia Movement Charter ratification voting held between 25 June and 9 July 2024 are as follows:

Individual vote:

Out of 2,451 individuals who voted as of July 9 23:59 (UTC), 2,446 have been accepted as valid votes. Among these, 1,710 voted “yes”; 623 voted “no”; and 113 selected “–” (neutral). Because the neutral votes don’t count towards the total number of votes cast, 73.30% voted to approve the Charter (1710/2333), while 26.70% voted to reject the Charter (623/2333).

Affiliates vote:

Out of 129 Affiliates designated voters who voted as of July 9 23:59 (UTC), 129 votes are confirmed as valid votes. Among these, 93 voted “yes”; 18 voted “no”; and 18 selected “–” (neutral). Because the neutral votes don’t count towards the total number of votes cast, 83.78% voted to approve the Charter (93/111), while 16.22% voted to reject the Charter (18/111).

Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation:

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees voted not to ratify the proposed Charter during their special Board meeting on July 8, 2024.
