Week 145: The Ambassadors

Welcome, Ambassador, to the Local Embassy. Wikipedia is quick to inform you that its Local Embassy project is not an actual embassy. Rather, this is the place to go to connect with Wikipedia editors from many of Wikipedia's 295 different language editions.

Local Embassy contains a list of editors from other language Wikipedias whom you can reach out to for help on international issues, translations, or any other collaborations. The list is ordered alphabetically by language code.

Feel free to drop editors a line on their Talk pages or via email, when applicable. Check out editors' user pages before contacting them. Many add Babel boxes noting their various language proficiencies, which is very helpful.

Toward the top of the Local Embassy page, you'll see links to leave messages for editors on other embassies, rather than try to connect with individual editors. Plus, the Wikimedia Foundation also runs its own embassy.
