In [[ https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_Annual_Plan/2017-2018/Final/Programs/Community_Engagement | Program 11 - Community Collaboration in product development ]], Community Liaisons have identified "//Top 25 wiki projects in terms of active contributors have at least one active tech ambassadors and one translator identified//" as one of their KPIs for the next fiscal year.
There are several details that would really better be discussed with interested volunteers, so the plan is:
# share a draft description of the role of "translator"/"tech ambassadors" with the community and request their feedback (July);
# refine and discuss the related KPI definitions with the community at and after Wikimania (August).
== Results ==
Working with the community, we defined [[ https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Technical_Collaboration/Community_collaboration_in_product_development/Tech_ambassadors_and_translators#Tech_Ambassadors | the role of the tech ambassadors ]] and convened about the [[ https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Technical_Collaboration/Metrics#Tech_ambassadors_and_translators | related KPI ]] to track. We got initial, spontaneous sign-ups to [[ https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/Ambassadors/List | a new list ]] of tech ambassadors.
