A multi-lingual team of skilled persons from different user groups, adopting a private-public engagement model and contributing to systematized content commons and their publication as a web of open wiki-dictionaries.
The recommended minimal skill levels of a contributor or team member are in the table.
A Competence Self-Appraisal may be used to determine your skill levels prior to applying for membership.
If your command of the English language is insufficient to author even short texts, then this procedure is recommended: use Google Translate to translate a text in any of the supported languages (Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic,… to Yiddish) to English, and then contribute the resulting English text at the suitable place in the wikiworx platform. As the author, indicate that the text has been produced with the help of Google Translate, as a translation from the original language to English. A further quality and readability check can then be performed by other team members (e.g. with the help of comments).
Aim & Objectives
Providing content that supports development initiatives in the countries of the world as listed at Actor Atlas initiative books, catalyse the creation of other open content resources, for instance in Languages that lack a Wikipedia or online encyclopedia.
Claims & Core Values
- Fair access to content commons as a basis for improved communications and planning for poverty alleviation and sustainable development.
- Creation of content commons prior to their hand-over to and management by a commons trust, this is a fiduciary that would protect and maintain the shared asset on behalf of current and future generations.
Analyse reports and websites that are in the public domain, and bring key elements from their contents, often references, into the structured wiki pages that are called systematized content commons. By doing this the content becomes much more accessible and reusable for the wikiworx user, as part of a societal architecture, and communications can become more information-centric1.
Systematized wikis, as explained at wikiworx.info components.
