Wikimedia Norge has started a project that aims to improve the Northern Sami Wikipedia and get more Sami content to the Wikimedia projects. The Northern Sami Wikipedia currently has around 7,000 articles, which is very good for a language its size, but the problem is that there are very few contributors. That’s something we want to change, but we can’t do it all by ourselves!

The ultimate goal is to make the Northern Sami Wikipedia a living, active and thriving project. In order to achieve that we need volunteer contributors who know Northern Sami.

Do you know Northern Sami, and think this sounds interesting, but don’t know where to begin? In that case we’d love to get in touch with you! You can input your e-mail address in the form below, and we’ll be in touch shortly. The same of course also applies if you don’t know Northern Sami, but are still interested in the project, e.g. if you represent a potential partner, or even if you’re just a regular person interested in this project.
