Minor editsEdit

  Thank you for your contributions. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. --John (talk) 20:06, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Hallo John, thank you. Most of my work will be in the German wikipedia, in English wikipedia only small contributions, because i speak German better than English. Greetings--Buchbibliothek (talk) 20:10, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Englisches WikiEdit

Hermann Remmele ist Wiki-noetig. Wenn du weitere deutsche Artikeln auf englisch uebersetzt und Hilfe wuenschst, bitte schreibst am "Talk page": {{ping:Narky Blert}}, mit Rationale. Es mag sein, dass ich dir helfen kann; ins besondere, mit Kategorien und "WikiProjects".

Boßler TunnelEdit

Hello Buchbibliothek, thank you for your contributions and welcome to en-Wiki. In addition to Narky Blert's kind offer you could also try to ask at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Germany, if you need assistance with Germany-related articles (the talkpage has been relatively quiet recently, but it's still worth a try). It would be great, if you could tag translated Germany-related articles with {{WikiProject Germany}} and a translation tag, see Talk:Boßler Tunnel as example. Feel free to ping me aswell, if you are stuck with any en-Wiki specific problems (en-Wiki and de-Wiki are quite different in my opinion, atleast in some aspects). Best regards.

Hello GermanJoe, thank you. Kind regards --Buchbibliothek (talk) 18:23, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

QualitätsproblemeEdit

Hallo Buchbibliothek

Danke für die schnelle Rückmeldung. Ich sehe, dass wir am selben Seil in die selbe Richtung ziehen. In der Tat wird bei den bereits angelegten Übersetzungen noch eine Menge Arbeit investiert werden müssen. Ich selbst finde es beim Übersetzen am einfachsten, den fremdsprachigen Text mit allen Anmerkungen und Bildern in die Sandbox zu kopieren, und dann jeweils zwischen den Einzelnachweisen (oder sogar von Link zu Link) Satz für Satz zu übersetzen. Einige Passagen können oft auch ausgelassen werden, da ich z.B. bezweifele, dass sich viele Engländer für den Wahlmodus der unechten Teilortswahl in Ammerbuch interessieren. Ich freue mich schon auf Deine Artikelverbesserungen und neue Artikel. talk:NearEMPTiness|talk]]) 18:05, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
eview und Sandbox ist auch eine englische Rechtschreibprüfung hilfreich. VG --GünniX (talk) 07:46, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
Hallo GünniX, bin gerade am Nacharbeiten. Wie funktioniert die englische Rechtschreibprüfung? Danke--Buchbibliothek (talk) 07:53, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
Für die "englische Rechtschreibprüfung" benötigt man zusätzliche Tools. Schau mal bei Wikipedia:WCW:
  • Der WP:CLEANER bietet neben einer ausführlichen Syntaxprüfung eine einfache englische Rechtschreibprüfung.
  • Das LanguagTool zeigt auch Verbesserungsvorschläge.
VG --GünniX (talk) 08:08, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
Hallo GünniX, das LanguagTool funktioniert. Danke. :::::::

QualitätsverbesserungEdit

Hallo nearEMPTiness, ich habe jetzt mal eine Excel-Tabelle mit meinen Artikeln gemacht und dort k für Korrekturlesen und lt für language tool eingetragen. Schnell übersetzen geht mit Google nicht, da muss wirklich jeder Satz einzeln durchgekaut werden. Mit den refs und Kategorien bin ich auch schon etwas weitergekommen. Danke für den Tipp mit dem Übersetzungstool, funktioniert aber nicht für Deutsch-Englisch, habe ein Feedback abgegeben. Solltest Du noch auf etwas von mir stoßen das nachgearbeitet werden muss, so gib mir bitte Bescheid, denn es ist mir nicht recht, wenn Du meine Edits nacharbeiten musst.--Buchbibliothek (talk) 19:17, 2 August 2016 (UTC) Grüße

Mein bisheriger Schwerpunkt in dewiki war das Nacharbeiten von Literaturangaben, d.h. wenn ISBN, Verlag, Verlagsort und/oder Erscheinungsjahr gefehlt haben.--Buchbibliothek (talk) 09:45, 4 August 2016 (UTC)


Content TranslationEdit

Es gibt von Wikimedia sogar ein Tool "Content Translation" das gut von Deutsch nach Englisch und eingeschränkt von Englisch nach Deutsch arbeitet. Wie kann man das benutzen?

  • Siehst Du in der englischen Wikipedia einen Reiter "Beta" zwischen dem Reiter "Prefrences" und dem Reiter "Contributions"?
    • Wenn ja kannst Du diesen anklicken.
    • Falls noch kein Reiter da ist, kannst Du auf den Reiter "Preferences" klicken und dann auf der auf der damit geöffneten Seite auf den Unterreiter "Beta Features" klicken und schließlich dort ganz unten ein Häkchen in dem Kasten "Content Translation" setzen und abschließend unten links auf "Save" klicken.
  • Alternativ oder danach kannst Du auf dieser Seite auf den Link "du kannst es ausprobieren" klicken.--NearEMPTiness (talk) 19:33, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

August 2016Edit

  Hello! Thank you for your recent contributions to Eschenbach (Göppingen). I did have one note for you. I am working on a maintenance project to clean up Category:Pages using infoboxes with thumbnail images. In the future, please do not use thumbnails when adding images to an infobox (see WP:INFOBOXIMAGE). What does this mean? Well in the infobox, when you specify the image you wish to use, instead of doing it like this: |image=[[File:SomeImage.jpg|thumb|Some image caption]], instead just supply the name of the image. So in this case you can simply do: |image=SomeImage.jpg. There will then be a separate parameter for the image caption such as |caption=Some image caption. Please note that this is a generic form message I am leaving on your page because you recently added a thumbnail to an infobox. The specific parameters for the image and caption may be different for the infobox you are using! Please consult the Template page for the infobox being used to see better documentation. Thanks!! Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 19:30, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the message.--Buchbibliothek (talk) 19:32, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

A page you started (Udo Düllick) has been reviewed!Edit

Thanks for creating Udo Düllick, Buchbibliothek!

Wikipedia editor Liechtenstein96 just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Dear Buchbibliothek, I see u translated this from the German wiki, well done. I did some minor edits. Maybe one could point out more precisely what makes Udo special and why his life´s got an impact on today. One "Tipp": make sure u use the correct tenses and not a story-telling language-style. If you have trouble with the English language feel free to write me in German ;) Kindest regards, Liechtenstein96 (talk) 12:20, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Doping victims of the GDREdit

 

Olga SeglerEdit

Sehr geehrter, Buchbibliothek, und Vielen Dank für die Übersetzung des Artikels! Ich habe den Artikel eine Korrekturlesen gegeben. Mit allem Respekt, ich denke vielleicht, Ihr Englisch ist ungefähr so gut wie mein Deutsch. Aber alles gut, wir wechseln Information hier, wir lernen von ein ander, usw.

Als ehemaliger Soldat, der in Berlinbasiert war, die Opfer der Berliner Mauer haben einen besonderen Platz in meinem Herzen. Die englische Wikis am Hildegard Trabant und Dorit Schmiel, habe ich von Grund auf neu geschrieben, und ich habe stark auf die englische Wikiauf Ida Siekmann und Chris Gueffroy beigetragen. Ich habe stark auf den deutschen Wikis auf Rudolf Urban, Marienetta Jirkowsky, Chris Gueffroy, Ida Siekmann (http://frauidasiekmann.blogspot.com), beigetragen, und auch auf dem Opfer, das mich am meisten von aller Maueropfer bewegt, Hildegard Trabant (http://frauhildegardtrabant.blogspot.com).

Wenn Sie mehr solcher Artikel übersetzen, und wenn Sie mir eine Nachricht bitte senden, würde ich mich freuen, eine Korrekturlesen zur Verfügung zu stellen. Es gibt viele Wichtigtuer hier in Wikipedia, die denken, es ist ihr Geschäft Artikel zu löschen, die nicht perfekt sind.

Gruß, Bob Brewer Bob (talk) 18:40, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

Hello Brewer Bob, thank you for the message and the edit. I translated 3 more articles, Udo Düllick, Christian-Peter Friese and Klaus Brueske. Kind regards.--Buchbibliothek (talk) 15:38, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Knut FolkertEdit

Hello Buchbibliothek,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Knut Folkert for deletion, because it's too short to identify the subject of the article.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Cotton2 (talk) 23:27, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

You left me a message about creating an article for Knut, for that I would use the WP:AFC process. Click on the link and provide the information you have, and substantial 3rd party references. The new article will replace the redirect. Good luck, Cotton2 (talk) 07:26, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Ways to improve Hermann LiscoEdit

Hi, I'm Sadads. Buchbibliothek, thanks for creating Hermann Lisco!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. In order for the article to be retained on English Wikipedia for the long term, the article needs to be referenced, to increase WP:Verifiability.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. Sadads (talk) 01:23, 4 September 2016 (UTC)






SandboxEdit

You can use your sandbox for all the projects you like. But you can't file your projects in mainspace categories, and any editor is allowed to remove the categories accordingly. Bearcat (talk) 18:09, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Please note that WP:IAR is not a license to just do anything you want — you have to make a credible case why "ignoring the rule" actually constitutes a net improvement to the encyclopedia. Articlespace categories are for articles, not user sandbox pages, and pages can never be left filed in categories that don't even exist to have pages filed in them — and it is not "improving the encyclopedia" to say that those rules can be broken just because IAR exists. There has to be a substantive reason why breaking the rule is constituting a benefit to the encyclopedia. Please also read Wikipedia:Ignoring all rules – a beginner's guide and Wikipedia:What "Ignore all rules" means for a bit more information on how IAR does and doesn't work. Bearcat (talk) 20:27, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
Did you see that the categories were red? I would understand when the categories were blue. Since several weeks I work very busy for WP, so it is not good to work in my sandbox without giving a good explanation. (your explanations became better).Anyway, I removed the content from my sandbox to a word document and hope it will stay empty.--Buchbibliothek (talk) 20:49, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
For a better work of me in enwiki in the future, is it a problem when there is a red category in the sandbox? Blue categories are not allowed, that is what i understand now. And why did you add the list of people again after i removed it?

Maybe I was not very friendly yesterday in the evening, but I was upset. Sorry (Suffering since years from health problems-depression). Regards from Germany--Buchbibliothek (talk) 08:39, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Different wikis can have different rules (just as an example, look at the way de: uses de:Kategorie:Kanadier as a comprehensive list of all Canadians regardless of whether they're also in occupational subcategories like de:Kategorie:Politiker (Kanada) — whereas we don't do it that way on en.) The question I'd have to ask is what would even be the point in maintaining category declarations that don't even exist on a sandbox draft? Sure, it's not technically causing the same harm that filing it alongside articles in real categories does — but what actual purpose would it actually serve? Bearcat (talk) 07:40, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the answer. It is good for me to know more now. --Buchbibliothek (talk) 07:46, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

TranslationsEdit

I just reverted one of your additions as the English text did not make sense. Please convert Google translation output (or other means) into something that can be readable. As an example, here is a sentence, The birthplace of the saint, the so-called brother-Konrad-Hof -. A typical Rottaler Vierseithof, is one of a few

Also, birth/death dates in a list is different from German Wikipedia. Death is not († 1012), but (died 1012). Birth is not (* 1979), but either (1979) or (born 1979).

I can only write one language, bad English. So, thank you for adding/translating from German Wikipedia. I'm always jealous of those who can translate. Bgwhite (talk) 01:17, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your translation work; but this cannot be left to fester with its bad writing. That's a case where it would be good if you could alert someone on en.WP to the need to copyedit an article. Just slapping articles onto the site and leaving them is problematic. Tony (talk) 04:15, 30 September 2016 (UTC) You've been pinged at MOS talk, where I referred to the article as an example. I just wanted to express general encouragement for your efforts, and to say that it's only a coincidence that I've referred to your article there as an example of a systemic issue. Please talk with us if you have any questions or comments! My best. Tony (talk) 09:28, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello Tony , i started in dewiki in 2013 and in enwiki in 2016. I had to learn a lot, I translated too fast and too much, that was my mistake, another user told me this. So I made an excel file for my translated articles to see what i have to touch up. This article unfortunately did not find the way to my excel file. At the moment I add sons and daughters of the town to articles in enwiki about towns.

RegardsBuchbibliothek 10:07, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello again, what is MOS talk? Thanks--Buchbibliothek (talk) 16:28, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
"MOS talk" is the talk page for enWikipedia's Manual of Style: WT:MOS. The discussion you were "pinged" in is Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style#Increasing problems posed by translated articles.

German DoB formattingEdit

I've been cleaning up disambiguation/Set-Index Articles using the German Date of Birth formatting (* 1905; † 1974, MoS discussion) and wanted to inform you the convention on English Wikipedia is (1905–1974/born 1905/died 1974). — Dispenser 16:35, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

Reference errors on 2 DecemberEdit

WikiProjekt Germany TemplateEdit

I came across a number of edits like this, where you removed class=Stub from the project template. All those I did come across where from July, so I don't know if you still do that. If you feel that an article is no longer a stub (Which after after you expanded the article is obviously the case - good work!) please update the classification to class=Start. That will help with keeping articles assessed. Thanks. Agathoclea (talk) 17:26, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Hello Agathoclea, thanks for your message, I did not know that (stub-start). Since a few weeks however, I make less translations and only add sons and daughters of the town, mayors, pictures.

Every little helps. Keep it up. Agathoclea (talk) 17:43, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

You rang?Edit

You said I reverted your edits and you asked me why in the wrong place. I have no idea what edits you are referring to... could you be more specific? Fyunck(click) (talk) 10:37, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

Hello Fyunck (click), to me this seems to be a missunderstanding. I can't remember that I said that you reverted my edits. Kind regards--Buchbibliothek (talk) 11:51, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
Hello again, sorry, now I see it was already last year in July. However, I made many edits in those days, so it is much work to find out what it was. I would say it is done. Kind regards--Buchbibliothek (talk) 12:01, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
No problem. You posted it on my user page just a few hours ago so I wanted to make sure. Fyunck(click) (talk) 18:53, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for the message. Regards--Buchbibliothek (talk) 18:55, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

Omitted quote in Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord?Edit

I noticed what appeared to be some vandalism in the article, a missing quote:

Helga, third child of Hammerstein, later reported, that her father told everbody, who wanted to hear it: [2]

In fact, many of his children had jewish acquaintances and supported jewish people. He did not refuse when some of his children gave files with political-military contents to the KPD. [12][13]

A colon like that implies a blockquote of some sort was intended to follow, perhaps a warning by Hammerstein of the danger of the Nazis, but there is nothing.

But tracing it in the history, it seems you merely forgot to include it in your original edit: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Kurt_von_Hammerstein-Equord&diff=next&oldid=730184649 Could you either add the quote or remove the citation? --Gwern (contribs) 16:23 2 March 2017 (GMT)

Hello, well I worked with dewiki and i took all three citations from dewiki, so i think it should be ok. However, i noticed my english is good, but not good enough to do such work. So now i do easier work, for example sons and daughters of the town. Regards--Buchbibliothek (talk) 17:03, 2 March 2017 (UTC)

May 2017Edit

  Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Ahlerstedt, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear to be constructive and has been reverted. If you only meant to make a test edit, please use the sandbox for that. Thank you. Jdcomix (talk) 22:54, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

This is a miss-understanding, take a look at my contributions. Many articles about German municipalities are stubs, and I add for example sons and daughters of the place from dewiki. So please do not remove again. Regards.--Buchbibliothek (talk) 23:03, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 12Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

German MunicipalitiesEdit

Hello, I've noticed that your userpage says you're German and you've made many edits to the articles for many small German municipalities. I've recently expanded the articles for a few by using Google Translate on German Wikipedia articles. I'd appreciate it if you could double-check my translation work, since I don't speak German myself. These are the articles I've worked on: Fußgönheim, Assenheim, and Hochdorf, Rhein-Pfalz-Kreis. They're all tagged with an "expand from German" template linking the originals. Thanks! - Degeno (talk) 04:20, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

Hello Degeno, I wrote your post just right now. Please ask GünniX, he also helped me, he seems to be a good user, you can find him in the articles in edit history. Regards.--Buchbibliothek (talk) 07:42, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
Hello Degeno, I checked your translations.
The translation "Ortsgemeinde" → "municipality" is not exact. Perhaps it is better to use "Ortsgemeinden ("local municipalities")" like in Maxdorf (Verbandsgemeinde).
In Hochdorf, Rhein-Pfalz-Kreis the translation "Marlach" → "Marlach river" is not exact. In the map it flows between a creek and a ditch. It should be something like that. There are some words like "Verwaltungsreform", which exists in the German wiki but not in the English wiki, so I don't know if the translation is good.
