Subtitling of The GLAM-Wiki Revolution
At Wikimania The GLAM-Wiki Revolution, a short documentary about the GLAM programme in the United Kingdom, was premiered. We contributed to the translation effort of the subtitles. Jean-Frédéric prepared the text with the Translate extension on Wikimedia Commons, and Symac, Seb35, Trizek and Anne-Laure translated the subtitles. We plan to use the documentary in our GLAM outreach work.

Aerial photography in Versailles
At the end of August, a small group of wikimedians took off near Paris for a flight which goal was to take aerial pictures of Versailles including the Château de Versailles. The first pictures taken are already online in a dedicated category.
Do you have a budget or summary of the costs for the aerial photography project to share? Did WMFR pay for the flight? What was the price per image for this project? We (WMSE) have payed for two helicopter tours in september and are reporting costs and such at this page, it would be interesting to see if we end up at the same price for an image. /Axel Pettersson (WMSE) (talk) 08:39, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
