How Wikidata film items are linked in a hierarchy

In this data donation, the conference organization TED conferences (Q189021) has released metadata of their hosted TED talks on Wikidata, and this is their first collaboration with Wikimedia projects. TED is committed to enabling more people to learn from these educational talks and they have a wider community of volunteers that transcribe and subtitle these talks in various languages. Part of the data release includes translated titles and translated short descriptions. More about the collaboration can found at outreach:TED conferences.

Wikipedians in Residence[edit]

As of February 2016, TED has appointed two Wikipedians in Residence, Jane Darnell (User:Jane023) and Andy Mabbett (User:Pigsonthewing).


For a list of Wikidata-related activities conducted as part of these residencies, please see /Diary.

TED speakers and articles about them in Wikipedia projects[edit]

The column "Trans" indicates whether for that language translated titles were added to Wikidata from the TED data donation (Y=Yes). Note that for those languages for which the Listeria bot is available, I have created lists in my userspace for both the TED speakers and the TED talks. Don't see your language? Add a request for your language on the Talk page and I will make lists and update the table.
