Translation from Swedish[edit]

Kalmar Glasäpple[edit]

Please find below a crude translation as per request 2012. Some linguistic polishing by a native speaker of English might be required, so amend as nessesary.

NB. 1700-talet (year 1700 – 1799) in Swedish corresponds to the 18th century in English, so there is no printing error below.

Kalmar glasäpple.jpg
Kalmar Glasäpple, (meaning glossy apple from Kalmar; an alternate name is Spanish renett) is an apple, the provenience of which has been disputed. Anyhow, this apple species has been grown in Sweden since the 18th century. The blossoming is late. Any apple species florificating at the same time as Kalmar Glasäpple is good for fertilization. The body is light yellow, and the taste is a mix of acidity and sweetness. Harvesting may begin in early October; fully ripe early December. The tenability is 1 – 2 months. Kalmar Glasäpple is suitable for eating as is, as well as for cooking. In Sweden, swedish cultivation zones (i) – (ii) [1] are suitable for gardening.

Kalmar glasäpple, också kallad Spansk renett, är en äppelsort vars ursprung är omtvistat. Äpplet har i alla fall odlats i Sverige sedan 1700-talet. Blomningen på detta äpple är sen, och äpplet pollineras av äpplen med samtidig blomning. Fruktköttet är ljusgult, och smaken en blandning av god syra och sötma. Kalmar glasäpple plockas i början av oktober och mognar i början av december. Hållbarheten är 1–2 månader. Kalmar glasäpple passar både som ätäpple, som i köket. I Sverige odlas Kalmar glasäpple gynnsammast i zon I-II.

New article[edit]

Hi Victuallers, hope you're doing fine.

I just created the article for Alida Hisku, an Albanian singer. Can you have a look at it, and maybe we can come out with a DYK?

Thanks.
--Mondiad (talk) 21:39, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

It looks OK to me. Would you care to nominate it? I can assist if you want Victuallers (talk) 18:07, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
You can nominate it. I will do next. Appreciate it. Cheers. --Mondiad (talk) 05:19, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

You have created an article on Annette Meakin. There is a much more comprehensive article in the sandbox of Samlesmore. Please could you help synthesize the 2 articles.

Ethel Bartlett and Rae Robinson[edit]

Hi, I am writing an article on these piano duettists for the Women in Music editathon. There is an article about Bartlett] in the Concise Oxford Dictionary of Music (5th edition), but it is subscription-only. I wonder if you have access to this online article and could perhaps copy it and post it on my talk page, or send it to me via email? Thanks for your help, Yoninah (talk) 23:05, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

I don't think I need it after all. I found their listings in a different Oxford dictionary, and they were very short. I just posted the article at Bartlett and Robertson. Yoninah (talk) 01:58, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Is there a central source for the underlying data. I know I'm way over, but the raw data is archived. ẼẼ7&6=thirteen () 12:29, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Hello father[edit]

I am making my first proper article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Muiravonside_Country_Park I'm doing a project there to make a heritage trail so I've got a pile of research on the place that I'll sift through and add to the article.
