International Community Update – TechNet Wiki Language Based

Hello community, Yuri Diogenes here and on this International Update I would like to talk about the new TechNet Wiki Portal Language Based. Last week we launched three new TechNet Wiki portals:

While I will let the Wiki Ninjas from China and Russia express their feedback about their portal, I would like to take a minute to echo how the Brazilian community reacted with the TNWIKI PT-BR (which has the short URL


Now that’s it. The Wiki is ours!


Congratulations to all Wiki Ninjas for the new Portal!


It’s getting pretty cool with all the links in PT. If you need help let me know.

The Brazilian community is pretty excited with the new portal and they are already fully engaged with the system. The community is actively using the Forum to ask questions about the new platform. They are also contributing in a very fast pace and the new platform is very well populated now.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks not only to the Brazilian community for embracing the new portal but also to Luciano Lima, Jordano Mazzoni and Jorge Barata for working with me last Thursday (04/12) until late in the night to finish populating the main pages. You guys rock!

That’s it folks, the International phase of the TechNet Wiki started, let’s keep it growing and populating those portals!

    Is there any plan to create other TechNet Wiki language based portals?

  3. Luigi,

    Russian and Chinese (Simplified) are also being worked on. It's obvious from our translation challenges that we also have passionate communities around the German, Norwegian, Italian, Japanese, and French languages.

    Things we can do… Keep working on building out the Italian community (we had three contributors in round 2 of the Translation Challenge). Let's also see if we can find any Italian speakers at Microsoft who want to help. Then we'll check back in later to see how the other launches went.


  4. For now I think the Norwegian portal can wait, focus on the others while i push the norwegian Microsoft community to use the TechNet Wiki more!

  5. Tord,

    Awesome! I think we all need to do that for just about every language other than Portuguese. =^)
