I am from New Zealand, but now study classics at Oxford. I've been on wikipedia and wiktionary since mid 2004 with varying levels of activity. These days, I'm mostly just translating interesting articles from the Italian and German wikipediae in order to keep my reading skills up to scratch. I try for one a day - if you see an article you want translated, let me know.
