Read about the perspectives and issues of concern to others. Attempt to represent these in your editing. Invite others to edit. Be respectful of others. Work to understand your own biases and avoid reflecting them in your editing. Avoid topics or discussions where you expect that you are biased or where you don't wish to make the effort to overcome those biases. This is a large project, so work where you can best serve the central content and behavioral expectations, particularly those related to Wikipedia's policy relating to neutral point of view.

Read newspapers, magazines, reliable websites, and other versions of Wikipedia in whatever non-English language or languages you know. If you know only English, read articles from other countries where English is an official or primary language, like Australia, Canada, India, Kenya, New Zealand, Pakistan (where English is a co-official language, but not primary), South Africa, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Also, some countries (such as Brazil or Israel) in which English is not an official or primary language have important English-language press.

Where such English-language press is not available, automated translation, though still very imperfect, can enable you to instantly and freely access articles in many languages, and will thus often be a reasonably adequate substitute, especially when compared to learning another language, which is normally a slow and possibly expensive way to try to gain access to articles in a single language. But when possible, learning another language to the point of being able to read a newspaper fluently is much more effective. The learning process can be facilitated if you can take classes and spend time in a country where the language is spoken.
