Thomas Hanbury[edit]

Hi! I'm afraid I've removed the translation work you did at Thomas Hanbury because as far as I can see, and through no fault of yours, the Italian wiki article is a wholesale copyright violation dating from 2008. I've asked for some advice on that here. Obviously you couldn't have known that and were editing entirely in good faith. There's now a source in the article from which it could be expanded. There's also probably a lot more information about this interesting man.

Just a note for the future: if you are planning to translate an article it's probably better not to copy-paste the original text, but instead write from scratch. It's quite OK to write one sentence, add a reference and an {{expand}} template, and let others add to it over time. Adding foreign-language text here creates extra work at Wikipedia:Pages needing translation into English, which is already overloaded. By the way, the Italian {{Bio}} tag for the start of a biography does not work here - you need to write the stuff out by hand. Best wishes, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 12:05, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
