Wikipedia Translation assignment - Published articles with a permanent link
From Ewan McAndrew on May 9th, 2017
This video demonstrates how students will always have a permanent link to their version of the published translated article page. No matter how many subsequent edits take place, the students can always link to their version, download it as a pdf and print it out. So the published article can be included on their CV as being their work. They can also use the permanent link to assess the article on Wikipedia's article quality scale and add a template to the article's Talk page to mark that the translation was carried out by them.
