Needs Assessment: Pilot Project Supporting Indian language Wikipedias
The Wikimedia Foundation, in partnership with Google and the Centre for Internet and Society, is launching a pilot project to address local online knowledge content gaps in India. The project is designed to engage and support active Wikipedia volunteers to produce valuable new content in local Indian languages. The pilot will run from November 2017 to May 2018 and will collaborate with Wikimedia India chapter, Wikimedia user groups, and may involve up to ten Indian language Wikimedia communities based on their interest and participation.

This questionnaire aims to understand the needs of the Indic Wikimedia community in ascertaining their infrastructure requirements that we can fulfil during the course of this project.

We will collect responses to assess whether and what type of conference programs would be most beneficial for the Wikimedia community in India. Individual responses or comments will not be made publicly available unless in anonymized or aggregated form.

Your privacy is important to us. As allowed by law, we will only share your responses with Wikimedia Foundation helping on this survey. We may, however, publicly share anonymous statistics about the responses in aggregate form. Wikimedia is a worldwide organization. By answering these questions, you permit us to record and transfer your responses to the United States and other places as may be necessary to carry out the objectives of this project. You also agree to refrain from incorporating your personal information in response to a question that doesn’t ask for it and to donate your responses to the public domain.
