Thanks for your contributions to Wikinews,
So that in Wikidata we can attribute you as the author of your articles, I have created an entry for you there.
I have been careful to only use information you already have on your userpage but just wanted to give you a heads-up so you don't have a surprise moment :-)
Hi Ash, would you mind please replacing any non-English sources here that can be replaced while maintaining verifiability with English sources (I suspect that would be all, given the subject)? WN:CS says the use of non-English sources "should be restricted to those absolutely essential, such as where there is only a single English source and the non-English source is required to corroborate the story and avoid potential copyright issues." They really lengthen the amount of time review takes if the reviewer doesn't understand the source language, like with me in this case (since reviewers are advised not to use just unreliable machine translation to read the sources).
I get translating articles across Wikinews editions helps you practice your skills with that language and improves cross-edition collaboration, but in this case... Thanks, Heavy Water (talk) 00:20, 23 November 2023 (UTC)
- Done! The reason I chose to do a translation rather than synthesise an article from scratch is because I noticed nothing had been published for a month and I wanted to get some form of longer article out. I'm currently very busy with university so I haven't had the time to write anything "proper", so when I saw de.wikinews had published something I just thought I'd translate it to get us something new.
