Why live interpretation only in Hindi? Edit

Thank you for leaving a message on my Talk page re Board elections. May I know why only Hindi interpretation is provided? Will it be available in Tamil? I think Wikimedia should refrain from such language imposition to such a large and diverse community! --செல்வா (talk) 17:31, 23 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@செல்வா: Hi, thanks for your message. WMF or the facilitation doesn't mean to impose any language on the community, and we understand the diversity of the community. As Hindi is mostly understood by the majority of Northern India, we considered it, and Bangla because it is spoken both in West Bengal and also Bangladesh, considering the event is for South Asia. However, you are right about Tamil, and I am working on getting live interpretation for Tamil as well. I will confirm with you once I have an update.

@செல்வா: It is confirmed! We will provide live interpretation in Tamil as well. I just updated the event page. KCVelaga (WMF) (talk) 09:35, 24 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you very much! --செல்வா (talk) 18:26, 24 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Community insight Edit

I got an e-mail from Tanja Andic and you in Hindi but since the translation she/you used was poor and not understandable, I am typing my request here: I have to complain that the editors on Hindi Wikipedia are adding unsourced sentences (and the admins are not doing anything about it), please do something about it. Please also explain what that e-mail was about in English (like I said, the Hindi translation she/you used was poor).-BitaKarate1 (talk) 06:08, 16 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Me to! Got something, but not a mail or spams in my mailbox, only here a text from mail. Could you reply, send a same letter? THX Hitachi-Hu (talk) 22:08, 18 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
