NLMK, the steel company's website, lists 70,000 employees on the front of its website. Is the 48,000 figure in the article (Section:Economy) representing just the employees who are resident in the Lipetsk area?--McTrixie 16:20, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Looking at NMLK's business structure, I think it makes sense to assume that they also employ people outside Lipetsk, so the 48K number might as well be correct. However, I was unable to find this number mentioned anywhere else. I suggest we remove it altogether as unreferenced, or replace it with the 70K figure that is referenced on the company's website (perhaps with a footnote stating that 70K is the number of all NMLK's employees, not just those in Lipetsk).—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 16:48, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
48K well match the number of NLMZ (former name of NLMK) emploees in soviet times. --jno 09:56, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
Yet another reason to remove this number.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 12:31, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
To be honest, NLMZ/NLMK claimed 40K+ personnel (late 70s)... --jno 13:21, 29 September 2006 (UTC)


Upgrade this page[edit]

I lived in Lipetsk for nearly a year (2006-2007) and really love this city. I would be willing to go through whatever sources I can find and improve the English version of the page. I was thinking of just using the Russian version of the page as a reference and adding some of the more important sections that it has. What are Wikipedia's standards for such a project? Is it OK to do a partial translation for a city-page like this? Bill Lava (talk) 21:43, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

You are quite welcome to do so. You can't put down Russian Wikipedia as a source (i.e., you can't ref any statement with a link to ru_wiki), but translated content is nevertheless not a problem (and is quite welcome, as a matter of fact). It's just that such a translation will be considered unreferenced, unless you re-use any sources used by the Russian Wikipedia or add your own.
