WikiProjects are collaborative efforts to improve Wikipedia articles and content in general. There are over 2,000 active WikiProjects in the English-language Wikipedia (and in other languages, too).

Curiously enough, till some days ago there was no WikiProject devoted to translation as a topic area (all translation-related articles were dealt with inside the scope of WikiProject Applied Linguistics). So I formally proposed and got enough endorsement for a WikiProject Translation Studies. There it is possible to improve content related to translation theory, translation criticism, translation education, computer-assisted translation, interpreting and other related topics.

Anybody willing to volunteer or spread the word?

I also recommend that we participate in this project, partly to enhance our translation expertise. There are so few contributors now.
