It’s time to make Wikipedia language selection smarter — to offer a user languages he/she actually wants to see in an article, and in an efficient way. In this talk we shall learn about :
1.The need for a compact language selector
2.How we achieved it in an Outreach Program for Women project.
3.What criteria we use to determine which languages might be most useful to a user, and why
4.How we implemented the feature
5.What concerns we heard from the Wikimedia community about this project
6.How everyone can help pitch in to make this project a success
