Thursday Council Spotlight – TechNet Wiki: Language Progress

Carsten and I have been working on a TechNet Wiki article that maps out how TechNet Wiki languages have progressed, starting in August 2012. It uses Tomoaki's monthly updates/charts.

Here's the article:

Recently, Durval also added some helpful Return to top links in it as well!

You can click in the TOC to go to that part of the article...

As a teaser, we'll include Tomoaki's very first chart, from August 2012:


August 2012


In the first chart, we should point out that English was far greater, maybe about 5-6K (it just wasn't tagged much yet). Portuguese had already made a huge push (led by Yuri and MVPs) to break the 1K articles barrier. They broke it quickly in 2011.

  6. Thanks, Durval, Saeid, Richard, and Pituach. Yes, I think the TOC really makes navigation a lot easier!

    I believe that’s Carsten’s original work, so thanks to Carsten for setting it up!
