Dear Catfish Jim, et al - A question regarding sources and citations.
I've encountered a major edit, written in English, which is based upon French language sources. The editor has provided page numbers, implying that other editors can read French. How is an English-only speaker/reader to verify the source material?
Moreover, would it be appropriate for the editor to include the passage from the source? In French? Or the English translation? What are the WikiRules that apply here? Perhaps you can refer me someone who knows if you are not familiar with the issue. 36hourblock (talk) 20:50, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
Hi... personally I find no problem in referencing foreign language sources. References are there to support statements rather than as a source of further reading for the general audience. CatfishJim and the soapdish 21:43, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
