Wikipedia is a multilingual project; as such, we may have articles on one subject available in many languages. The various languages each appear in semi-separate wikis, linked by interlanguage links.

This page lists Wikipedians who have volunteered to aid the translation of articles on other language Wikipedias into English. They may also be able to help you with translating reliable sources that are used to support parts of articles. For a full list of translators in both directions, and on all Wikipedias, see m:Translators.

See Category:Articles needing translation from foreign-language Wikipedias for lists of articles that need translating.

Instructions[edit]

Please enter your user name under each language you are able to translate, followed by a description of your proficiency level in the language in question and in English.

The following are useful as descriptions. Feel free to add other information you think would be informative. Remember that what is relevant is your reading level in the foreign language and your writing level in English:

  • Native
  • Near-native
  • Fluent
  • Near-fluent
  • Moderate
  • Minimal

The typical format for entries is this:

* {{User | YourUsernameHere}} — Near-native Martian, fluent English.

By placing yourself on this list you should expect to be contacted occasionally by people requesting help in translation. There is no obligation to perform any particular translation request, but if you would rather not be contacted at all then do not add your name. You can still take on any of the requested translations without listing yourself here.

Add yourself in lexicographical order and please keep any comments very short.

The lion (Panthera leo) is one of the four big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. With some males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight,[4] it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger. Wild lions currently exist in sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia (where an endangered remnant population resides in Gir Forest National Park in India) while other types of lions have disappeared from North Africa and Southwest Asia in historic times. Until the late Pleistocene, about 10,000 years ago, the lion was the most widespread large land mammal after humans. They were found in most of Africa, across Eurasia from western Europe to India, and in the Americas from the Yukon to Peru.[5] The lion is a vulnerable species, having seen a major population decline in its African range of 30–50% per two decades during the second half of the 20th century.[2] Lion populations are untenable outside designated reserves and national parks. Although the cause of the decline is not fully understood, habitat loss and conflicts with humans are currently the greatest causes of concern. Within Africa, the West African lion population is particularly endangered.

Lions live for 10–14 years in the wild, while in captivity they can live longer than 20 years. In the wild, males seldom live longer than 10 years, as injuries sustained from continual fighting with rival males greatly reduce their longevity.[6] They typically inhabit savanna and grassland, although they may take to bush and forest. Lions are unusually social compared to other cats. A pride of lions consists of related females and offspring and a small number of adult males. Groups of female lions typically hunt together, preying mostly on large ungulates. Lions are apex and keystone predators, although they are also expert scavengers obtaining over 50 percent of their food by scavenging as opportunity allows. While lions do not typically hunt humans, some have been known to do so. Sleeping mainly during the day, lions are primarily nocturnal, although bordering on crepuscular[7][8] in nature.

Highly distinctive, the male lion is easily recognised by its mane, and its face is one of the most widely recognised animal symbols in human culture. Depictions have existed from the Upper Paleolithic period, with carvings and paintings from the Lascaux and Chauvet Caves, through virtually all ancient and medieval cultures where they once occurred. It has been extensively depicted in sculptures, in paintings, on national flags, and in contemporary films and literature. Lions have been kept in menageries since the time of the Roman Empire, and have been a key species sought for exhibition in zoos over the world since the late eighteenth century. Zoos are cooperating worldwide in breeding programs for the endangered Asiatic subspecies.
