The new year period has come and gone, but an unreferenced article with some very dubious claims remains with us. Would anyone like to tackle it? AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 02:17, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

I replied on the talk page. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 23:27, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Japanese translation needed for Japan at the 2017 Asian Winter Games article[edit]

Hi, I am working on the Japan at the 2017 Asian Winter Games article and needed help translating the names from this source:[1]. Is anyone able to help? Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 14:47, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Which pages? As far as I can see all names are also spelled out in Hiragana/Katakana, so it would be easy to transcribe them. bamse (talk) 20:30, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
The names are currently missing from the following sections: Biathlon, Curling, Ice hockey, and short track speed skating. What's also missing is the events of all the sports minus speed skating. I'd also like to know the translated title of the document. Thanks!! @bamse Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 03:12, 31 January 2017 (UTC)


This might do for the title.

第8回アジア冬季競技大会(2017/札幌)日本代表選手団 名簿
2017Asian Winter Games Japanese Team Roster

If names are missing, that might be because the athletes haven't been selected yet. – Margin1522 (talk) 06:37, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

Except, of course, do not use those horrible Japanese numerals, a relic of 1970s computing... Imaginatorium (talk) 07:47, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
Of course. – Margin1522 (talk) 10:47, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
Thank you! Should have been more clear, when I meant the sections above I meant in the article. So those are the sports that do not have names listed for them on the article, which this source should provide (hence the need for translation). Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 14:06, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
I added biathlon and short track speed skating names. bamse (talk) 14:40, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi WP:JAPAN. I've started a new draft at Draft:Karolina Stycznska. So far, it's not much more than a two sentence stub and a photo, but there are quite a bit a sources to work with. If anyone would like to help fleshing it out a bit, then please feel free to do so. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:21, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
