Background and history[edit]

</translate> <translate> The Associació Amical Viquipèdia was founded in 2008. Several attempts were subsequently made to gain WMF recognition as an affiliated organization. The first proposal of Wikimedia CAT aimed to establish a Wikimedia local chapter in the Catalan-speaking territories. This proposal did not receive a favorable recommendation from ChapCom because these territories fell over several sovereign states and overlapped with existing chapters. The second proposal aimed to frame Wikimedia CAT as a local national sub-chapter, reducing the territory to Spain's Catalan-speaking regions alone. This alternative invited comments from members of the Board of WMF but received clear support from only Jimmy Wales.</translate>[1] <translate> The third and last proposal, in 2013, was consistent with the new model approved by [[<tvar|2>Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia Board of Trustees</>|WMF Board]], called [[<tvar|3>Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia Thematic Organizations</>|Thematic Organizations]]. Amical Wikimedia [[<tvar|4>Special:MyLanguage/WMF Resolutions/Recognition of Amical Wikimedia</>|was recognized by the WMF]] on June 7, 2013.</translate>

<translate> During those five years of existence without the explicit recognition of the WMF, the people supporting the organization worked hard to promote and support the Wikimedia projects in Catalan. Links to monthly reports can be found below.

The organization was legally incorporated as a non-profit in Catalonia (2009). Amical Wikimedia (former Amical Viquipèdia) and the Catalan Wikipedia editing community took a [[<tvar|5>:w:ca:Viquip%C3%A8dia:Presa_de_decisions/Enlla%C3%A7os_a_l%27associaci%C3%B3_Amical_Viquip%C3%A8dia</>|formal decision establishing links with Amical]] in April 2010.

  • Amical Wikimedia's focus is on the Catalan language and culture.
  • Amical Wikimedia's primary mission and goal is that the sum of all human knowledge will be also available in Catalan and that all knowledge about Catalan culture will be also available in every language.

The Catalan language is spoken in Catalunya (Catalonia), País Valencià (Valencian Country), Illes Balears (Balearic Islands), Catalunya Nord (Northern Catalonia), Aragó (La Franja), Andorra and Italy (L'Alguer). It has around 10 millions speakers, however, it is not recognized by the European Union as an official language[2] despite the fact that it has more speakers than, for example, Slovak (7M), Lithuanian (3.2M) or Maltese (0.5M), amongst others.

Territorial overlap with national chapters[edit]

The territory of activity of the organization is everywhere in the world where there are volunteers willing to work to achieve Amical's mission. Amical will keep other Wikimedia organizations that are active in those territories informed about the projects and activities to be done in these areas, seeking collaboration with them.

Notes[edit]

</translate>

  1. <translate> I strongly support the creation of Wikimedia CAT, for the same reasons and in the same way that I support the creation of sub-national chapters in a variety of contexts where local conditions make it sensible to do so. I say this as a personal opinion of one board member. --Jimbo Wales 14:32, 14 November 2010 (UTC)</translate>
