The Language Office of the European Commission Representation in Malta and Wikimedia Community Malta are organising a 2019 European Parliament Election Edit-a-thon, in collaboration with the European Parliament Information Office in Malta and Spazju Kreattiv. This comprises three days of activities focusing on sharing knowledge about the European Parliament through Wikimedia projects, including Wikipedia and Wikidata.

The creation/editing of pages and information associated with the 2019 European Parliament election in Maltese will be the main focus of this three-day event, which is part of the EU-wide Translating Europe Workshops organised by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Translation.
