Abstract
By trying to apply tools developed first for big Wikis into small Wikis, results are weak, and sometimes opposite to expectations. This presentation will offer tools especially conceived for medium and small Wikis. From Wikidata-based infoboxes to template translators, those tools will be described taking Arabic Wikipedia as an example. Tips to manage community reaction and involvement in those major enhancements will be mentioned. Also, resources will be provided to facilitate implementing those tools.

Presentation made during Wikimania 2018. A lot of new tools will be added and tips related to the North American context will be mentioned.
