  1. Sign up in the Participants section below so that your contributions can be checked: you'll earn an "Interlingual Barnstar"! Top translators will also be mentioned in the next issue of the VisualEditor global newsletter, and the 3 most active ones may get a prize from the Wikimedia Store (a short-sleeve shirt, or other items for the same value). New translations (that is, those for messages available in the "Untranslated" tab of the translation program) and updated translations (those for messages available in the "Outdated" tab) will be counted.
  2. Click on any of the links above and start translating by clicking on the Translate to... dropdown link on the top right of the page. If you have created your account on recently, let us know: we may need to validate it.
  3. Please don't start early! Messages and pages are being updated and added and may change drastically before the translathon starts, and translations before then won't be counted towards the prize.  :)
