Yes – which one.” • EN.WP-centrism – ContentTranslation doesn’t support “campaigns” • Engagement (chapters, individuals, GLAMs)
  14. 14. National stereotypes!
  15. 15. Metadata inconsistency / Notability
  16. 16. En.wp centrism • Everything goes into EN before being translated back out. – Support ContentTranslation when source, but not destination, is known (example)
