CEE Spring 2022 in Albania and Kosovo
Wikimedians of Albanian Language User Group participated in the CEE Spring Campaign 2022. For two months in a row, we guided our audience and contributors to translate and improve articles from the suggested articles on a weekly basis.
A number of articles were translated by the students from wikiclubs in Albania and they also followed up their articles by improving them. Their impression is that they learned so much information from the Central and Eastern European countries' articles.
At the CEE Spring Campaign, we had 12 editors who translated 34 articles. We thanked them for their great work by posting their articles on the landing page of Wikipedia in the Albanian Language.
WoALUG welcomes cooperation with all GLAM institutions.
- We have a public Telegram channel (language used mostly Albanian) if you want to join and discuss Wikimedia projects. You don't need to be a member to be part of this channel.
