Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
Vasili Yakovlevich Eroshenko (Russian: Василий Яковлевич ЕрошенкоUkrainian: Василь Якович Єрошенко) (January 12, 1890 — December 23, 1952) was an anarchist writer, esperantist, linguist, and teacher. At the age of four, he contracted measles and as a result, became blind.
From 1921 to 1923, Eroshenko stayed in Beijing, China, where he taught Esperanto. He was in contact with the Chinese writer Lu Xun, who translated a play and a collection of fairytales by Eroshenko in Chinese. Eroshenko features in Lu's short story 'The Comedy of the Ducks'.
