Thank you for your help!

Our biggest challenges are:

  • being sure the community is informed about this deployment
  • getting translations done
  • gathering a group of users approximately 20 users who would act as mentors, to welcome newcomers.

I finished the pt translation and it seems pt-br is also complete.

Cool! Translations will be available on test.wikipedia.org on Thursday. So then you will be able to check if they are good.

I checked on this community discussion. is there anything we can do to see more people participating? Or is it considered as enough information and we can move to the next steps?

To have the features being deployed, we need to have a list of people volunteering to be mentors. Has your wiki a list of people interested by this?

Once we can test the inteface on translatewiki, I think we can ask for people to sign up somewhere. We can probably reach out to people who have mentored newcomers before: https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Categoria:!Tutores
Some are perhaps not active anymore.

Sorry for not replying earlier!

Have you made your tests they way you wanted? I noticed that some people have made some suggested edits, and contacted their "mentors" on test.Wikipedia.org.

Contacting these users is a good idea (and also a good way to clean the category). You can also make a call on your local village pump to encourage people to become mentors. As myself a mentor on my wiki on my volunteer capacity, it is an interesting experience to have!

I am on holidays now, but will get back to this next month.
