Google-translated Telugu articles prioritisation exercise: January iteration

Posted by Pavan Santhosh at Jan 10, 2017 12:00 AM |
The January iteration of the Google-translated Telugu articles prioritisation exercise took place online.


The Google-translated Telugu articles prioritization is an online exercise intended to prioritize and improve over 1,900 machine-translated articles on Telugu Wikipedia. This project began from 2009- 2011 when Google translation project took place on Telugu Wikipedia in several rounds. Jointly organised by the Telugu Wikipedia community and CIS-A2K, this exercise saw the participation of 1 female Wikipedian and 4 male Wikipedians. 


12 machine translated articles were improved and 39 have been deleted due to their poor quality. In addition to this, 42 articles have been prioritised for further improvement. Says Telugu Wikipedian User:Meena gayathri.s, "people who wanted to improve Google-translated article waited [for a] long time to get a priority list of articles to be improved and in that aspect, this exercise is very useful."


Several such iterations are planned for the coming months. The meta page for the event can be found here.
