Today we’re excited to launch the Wikimedia Foundation’s latest Annual Report. This year marks the fifth edition of our Annual Report, which focuses on the achievements and core work of the preceding fiscal year (2011-12), and gives us a chance to recognize the amazing contributions of our volunteers and the generous support of our donors. You can read both the PDF and wiki versions. We welcome your comments on the discussion page.
This year’s report is quite different from our previous efforts. Instead of a multi-page book format, this year we created a folding, vertical brochure (when it’s printed). It’s considerably shorter in terms of text and we hope it will help make for a quicker and more impactful read.
We’re currently in the midst of a translation effort that will result in another 12 language editions to be released in the coming weeks. If you have an account on Meta-Wiki and you’re interested in helping with the review of these translations and other community translation efforts, please sign up. We will be posting this new project for translation shortly.
Our thanks to the many folks who contributed to this annual effort. A particular thank you to David Peters (Exbrook) for his work on the report’s design, and to those photographers and illustrators whose work we featured.
We’re looking forward to another amazing year in the Wikimedia movement!
Jay Walsh, Senior Director, Communications
