Welcome to Meta! Edit

Hello McDutchie, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). If you would like, feel free to ask me questions on my talk page. Happy editing! --Mikhailov Kusserow (talk) 07:34, 7 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Translation of Template:Snippets/lang ia Edit

Nicely done on your translation of {{snippets/lang ia}}, thanks. :) —Pathoschild 11:10:29, 06 April 2009 (UTC)

You're welcome. :-) Mind you, I didn't have time or inclination to look up all of the less common languages (from my European perspective), so some of them might be blatant anglicisms... but most of them should be OK. – McDutchie 18:05, 6 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"Help us with translations!" Edit

Heya Martijn, we seem to be missing a translation for "Help us with translations!" (used on the CentralNotices). Would you be able to translate this into Interlingua? Thanks! Cbrown1023 talk 20:28, 3 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Paragraph Edit

Hey, since you said "lassa un message" if someone can succeed to read the paragraph, I thought I'd just post here. I know French, some Italian, and a tiny bit of Latin, and the whole thing (100% of the words) was readable to me. Cheers, πr2 (t • c) 15:18, 9 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fundraising translation feedback Edit

Hey McDutchie,

I wanted to ask for your help. As you may be aware we have been running banners on many language wikis. We have a lot of new content this year and I really want to conduct a thorough review of our translations. This is a combination of feedback from the community, readers, donors as well as those with professional translator experience. This will help us ensure the highest quality of translations used in our messaging.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to give us feedback for Dutch using This Link

Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.

Many Thanks

Please consider not translating fundraising pages in protest Edit

Hi McDutchie, I have just noticed that you've been working on the translation of a fundraising page today.

I wanted to ask you to consider refraining from translating such pages to avoid supporting the recent actions of the Wikimedia Foundation. On Sunday, they have implemented a change that gives them an unprecedented, unilateral and unlimited power to protect certain pages on Wikimedia wikis in a manner that makes it impossible for all volunteers — including locally elected administrators — to edit them.

The change was secretly forced through without any community consultation, and the Foundation have used this new feature to actively fight the volunteer community of the German Wikipedia.

Your volunteer translations directly sustain such actions of the Foundation. Your work helps them save time and effort that they would otherwise have to invest in recruiting, training and managing new employees, and saves them money they would otherwise have to spend on professional translations.

The recent actions of the Wikimedia Foundation make it very clear that they no longer respect the wishes of the volunteer community, and that they no longer consider us an equal partner. The least we can do to voice our dismay at those actions, and to support our colleagues on the German Wikipedia, is to stop investing our precious time as volunteers on directly helping the Wikimedia Foundation. We can instead translate pages which help all wiki users.

Please take a minute to consider withdrawing your help for the Foundation in protest against their disrespectful treatment of the volunteer community of the German Wikipedia.

Thank you for your time and your consideration! odder (talk) 15:34, 15 August 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Superprotect status Edit

Dear McDutchie, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.

Should FuzzyBot remove all potentially outdated translations? Edit

A Community Wishlist Survey update waiting for translation Edit


Hello! Would you be able to translate the newest update about the Community Wishlist Survey 2022? In short: instead of November 2021, the CWS will happen in January 2022. We would also like to make other improvements. We can't do that without having the volunteers' opinions. This is what we ask for in the message.

After the weekend, I'll send this to all Village Pumps, Cafes, Forums, etc. Our team would like as many people as possible not to ignore this message. Let's remove the language barrier.

Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) 01:29, 4 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
