could you[edit]

with you fine mind examine my comments at User:Jaguar's talk page? It would be useful to know whether I have the issues completely wrong (probably) - trust all is well in the world of the silks and not like being trumped by misunderstandings legal in a country that is not ours JarrahTree 12:36, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

as I feared - more grey areas than one can imagine- thank you very much for that JarrahTree 22:44, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Courtney Hill (cricketer), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sunshine Coast (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Help with National Automobile Dealers Association article?[edit]

Hi there Bahnfrend. I'm trying to find an editor familiar with car-related topics, who might be interested to help with some improvements to the article for the US National Automobile Dealers Association. Although you're in Australia, I saw you're a member of WikiProject Automobiles and wondered if you might be familiar with NADA. On behalf of the organization, I've posted an edit request for a few small, straightforward updates on the article's talk page, and I am seeking review from an uninvolved editor. Might you have a little time to take a look? I posted a request for help on the WikiProject Automobiles' talk page, but so far no one has responded. Thanks! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 18:55, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

Can you help verify translations of articles from German[edit]

Hello Bahnfrend,

Would you be able to help evaluate the accuracy of translations of Wikipedia articles from German to English Wikipedia?

Language icon.svg

This would involve evaluating a translated article on the English Wikipedia by comparing it to the original German article, and marking it "Pass" or "Fail" based on whether the translation faithfully represents the original. Here's the reason for this request:

There are a number of articles on English Wikipedia that were created as machine translations from different languages including German , using the Content Translation tool, sometimes by users with no knowledge of the source language. The config problem that allowed this to happen has since been fixed, but this has left us with a backlog of articles whose accuracy of translation is suspect or unknown, including some articles translated from German. In many cases, other editors have come forward later to copyedit and fix any English grammar or style issues, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the translation is accurate, as factual errors from the original translation may remain. To put it another way: Good English is not the same as good translation.

If you can help out, that would be great. Here's a sample of the articles that need checking:

  1. Johann Pfeiffer
  2. John of Neumarkt

All you have to do, is compare the English article to the German article, and assess them "Pass" or "Fail" (the {{Pass}} and {{Fail}} templates may be useful here). (Naturally, if you feel like fixing an inaccurate translation and then assessing it, that's even better, but it isn't required.) Also please note that we are assessing accuracy not completeness, so if the English article is much shorter that is okay, as long as whatever has been translated so far is factually accurate.

If you can help, please {{ping}} me here to let me know. You can add your pass/fails above, right next to each link, or you may indicate your results below. Thanks! Mathglot (talk) 06:54, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
