Hello everyone,

We are PhD researchers at the University of Southampton working on
supporting underserved language communities in Wikipedia with the help of
Wikidata information.
We need your help! We work on generating text and want to understand how to
support editors when creating new articles. We are currently conducting a
series of interviews to understand the needs of the community better.
We are looking for editors of Wikipedia, that would be available to do said
interviews remotely (via google hangout or skype) in English. (The editing
will still be in your native language of course.) We focus on
under-resourced languages, meaning any but the top 5 Wikipedias in terms of
article and editor count.
It should take about 30 minutes of your time and would get us a better
insight into how to support small-language communities better.
The interviews will take place in the next two weeks. All of the data will
be anonymized.

Please find more information in the Participant Information Sheet:
https://github.com/luciekaffee/Announcements/blob/master/Interviews-Participant-Information-Sheet.md

If you want to participate and help us improving access to Wikipedia for
under-resourced language communities, just send me an E-Mail at
***@soton.ac.uk or sign up to be contacted here:

beside Wikipedia editing.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
Thanks,

Thanks, Lucy, and University of Southhampton researchers,

What a great study focus - "generating text and want to understand how to
support editors when creating new articles" in some 295 under-served
language communities.

Cheers, Scott
