Welcome to Meta!Edit

Hello Orangemike!, 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). Happy editing! — Mikhailov Kusserow (talk) 03:56, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Your statementEdit

Hello, Orangemike.

I've read your statement and I am willing to translate that to Portuguese. However, I'm in doubt about a few terms and I ask you, please, to clarify them to me:

  • I've been a union steward for decades (...)
What would be a "union steward"? Are you referring to anything outside Wikimedia? Can you give me another word for "union" and "steward"?
  • (...) been on and eventually chaired my unit's bargaining team (...)
"Unit's bargaining team" seems to be something outside of Wikimedia. Can you give me a short description of that?
  • I've served on the board of my 26,000-member union (...)
"Board of my 26,000-member union" seems to be something outside of Wikimedia. Can you give me a short description of that?

You can answer on this page. Thank you.” Teles (T @ L C S) 12:42, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Intendente do meu sindicato?
equipe por echinchar em nome de (de parte de?) nossa unidade (parte de nossa sindicato)"?
"conselho diretor do meu sindicato com 26,000 membros" ?
  • Thanks, Orangemike. However, I think that if you answer in English it will be easier for both of us. I will read your statement again and see what I can do. By the way, good luck for you.” Teles (T @ L C S) 19:17, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
    • A steward is an minor official (often unpaid) who serves as a representative for a union member in various circumstances, speaking for the union and the member's interests to management and serving as a resource for the member.
    • A bargaining team is the team of union members who speak for their bargaining unit (clerical workers; law enforcement officers; pilots and navigators; etc.) at the bargaining table.
    • The executive board is the group of members who govern a union between union conventions; it consists of member officers such as President and Treasurer, plus additional member representatives from the constituent units of the union. --Orange Mike 20:59, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
Hi. I've translated to Portuguese; I hope I did it correctly. If "union" refers to "Labor union", it can be translated to "sindicato". I'm not sure what exactly is "steward", so I used a generic term. Thanks.” Teles (T @ L C S) 16:23, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
"Union" is definitely "labor union"/sindicato; dictionaries tell me that "steward" translates to "Intendente". --Orange Mike 01:02, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Please identify yourself to Wikimedia FoundationEdit

Hello, in order to be a qualified candidate of second steward election of 2011, you need to get identified to Wikimedia Foundation within September 15, 2011. Please take a look over the email template to know about how to get yourself identified. You have only 3 more days, so identify yourself in a hurry. You will be disqualified if you fail to identify yourself within the stated deadline. Regards, — Tanvir | Talk ] 15:25, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Steward elections 2011-2Edit

Hello Orangemike. I regret to inform you that the Wikimedia Foundation has not received a proof of your identity prior to the start of the election and therefore your candidature has been disqualified.
