Wikimedians from Malaysia, Japan and Indonesia met at Zoom. From 21:00-21:15 JST, we introduced ourselves and then focused on editing. Sometimes Taufik Rosman, a veteran Wiktionary editor and Wikimedian of the Year 2023, gave a talk for beginners.Wikimedians edited the entries of their friends’ language in their Wiktionary. For example, I edited the Malay and Central Dusun entries in the Japanese Wiktionary using dictionaries and asking our friends.

This editathon resulted in the creation of 84 new entries and the improvement of 25 entries. You can see the result on MetaWiki [[Wikimedia Japan-Malaysia Friendship/Wiktionary Editathon 2023]].


I would like to thank all the participants, especially Taufik. It was a good opportunity for me to learn Malay and Central Dusun, and I am very happy to see the entries of Japanese words in the Wiktionary of other languages. I would like to do more collaborative projects in the future.
