Thank you for your translation of Newsletter note. Would you like to post it on Dutch projects? It you participate in any other projects than Wikipedia (Wiktionary, Wikiquote ...), please post it on them. Cheers. --Aphaia 19:52, 4 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Done. Fruggo 20:12, 4 Dec 2004 (UTC)
Hoi Fruggo. I read your mail on translators-l. I hope you have a help from Dutch community. Did you post it to wikinl-l too? I was afraid if you forgot it on my first glance to the To: header of your mail. Cheers, --Aphaia | WQ2翻訳中 | talk 13:15, 15 Mar 2005 (UTC)


Please see Board elections/2005/FAQ. ;-) --Aphaia | Translate Election | ++ 16:37, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I don't understand. What am I supposed to find or do on Board elections/2005/FAQ? Fruggo 16:49, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Ah, I found it. Seems the Dutch FAQ's are behind on schedule, I'll translate it. Thanks! Fruggo 17:00, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)


Thanks for the intense activity of the past few days :-) I really appreciate it. Cheers. Ant

You're welcome. Fruggo 11:20, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)
And likewise, again! +sj | Translate the Quarto |+ 21:47, 26 July 2005 (UTC)


Dear ! I didn't change the english to the esperanto but a monolingual us-english to a multilingual. I didn't make the dutch translation because I can't. So instead dutch you have found esperanto (why not ? do dutch-speakers prefer to talk with strangers in us-english , do they really? ). I put the nl version not yet translated. You only have to make dutch translation of these templates Template:Election candidates 2005/quickview ML/Nl and Template:QvEditMl/Nl --Arno Lagrange  04:46, 27 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Translation combination boxesEdit

The following text was copied from Meta:Babel#Translation_combination_boxes. As an active translator, it may be of any interest to you:

Hi, Sabine worked on new boxes for translators. They aim at giving information about translation combination: say, I can translate from English to French, from Italian to Spanish, and so on. It would help us to know who can translate what, in what, to streamline the translation process. The boxes do not provide information about your level (wether you are a professional translator or not, for example); you may write something about this point in your user page (very useful as well). A few boxes are available, be bold and create those you need :) Be aware we use ISO 639-3 codes for languages (fra and not fr, eng and not en, ...).

Please see "Translator in the following language combinations" and pick up templates for your user page!
This message was pasted on several User talk pages of active translators.

Thank you :)

Election notice translationEdit

Hi, Fruggo, it's you again ;) Thank you for your translation of Election notice. You might informed this page already to the Dutch community, Dutch language projects?

I hope your work involve many Dutch editors to this Election. Again, thank you!

P.S. Do you think the Dutch community is interested in updating Privacy policy/Nl? It was revised in June, and now the Dutch version is outdated ... --Aphaia 09:49, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

I posted in the Kroeg of nl.wikipedia (Village Pump) a link to the election notice with a short explanation. I'll work on the privacy policy asap. Thanks for the warning! Fruggo 18:35, 16 August 2006 (UTC)


En het is officieel... na de Engelstaligen en de freaks van Esperanto hebben we alle kandidaatsverklaringen vertaald! Juich! --Stevenfruitsmaak 18:56, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Applaus voor onszelf :) Fruggo 18:58, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

A belated thanks ..Edit

.. for helping to translate my Board election statement. The amount of multilingual activity in Wikimedia never ceases to amaze me, and I think we can do much more to support translation efforts throughout the Foundation. For example, on the technical level, I believe in interfacing with computer-aided translation tools such as the open source utility Omega-T (to make it easier to translate only the changes in the new version of a document), and to build multilingual discussion support into MediaWiki. (I've authored the specifications for LiquidThreads, which is being implemented as a Summer of Code project by David McCabe, and the Multilingual MediaWiki specs, which are going to be coded by Charles Pritchard with support from the University of Bamberg and Wikia.) It would also be neat to support open source machine translation efforts like Apertium, and to integrate those with MediaWiki.

I also believe that the next-generation dictionary, WiktionaryZ, will help with internationalization efforts. On the social level, we need to build organizational structures which take multilinguality into account, i.e. support local chapters, and bring translators into the Foundation-level processes. One final idea I have is to build a translation assignment management system, so we can easily manage and prioritize the translation tasks that need to be done, and notify translators when a document is ready for translation. If you have other ideas for improving and supporting multilinguality in our projects, please let me know at User talk:Eloquence. Again, thanks for your translation, and please keep up the great work!--Eloquence 21:26, 13 September 2006 (UTC)


Hoi Fruggo. Would you please give a look to TCPL? Effeistsanders and I wonder to know if you are interested in. If you are interested in, please list your name on its talk page. Thank you for your consideration. --Aphaia 08:06, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
