User talk:Nederbörd


Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far.

If you are unfamiliar with wiki editing, take a look at Help:How to edit a page. It is a concise list of technical guidelines to the wiki format we use here: how to, for example, make text boldfaced or create hyperlinks. Feel free to practice in the sandbox. If you would like a slower introduction we have a short tutorial.

These links may help you familiarize yourself with Wiktionary:

  • Entry layout (EL) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing page for a similar word, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary, though it may be a bit technical and longwinded. The most important part is that Wiktionary only accepts words that have been in somewhat widespread use over the course of at least a year, and citations that demonstrate usage can be asked for when there is doubt.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide for Wikipedia users useful.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • A glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
  • If you have anything to ask about or suggest, we have several discussion rooms. Feel free to ask any other editors in person if you have any problems or question, by posting a message on their talk page.

You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage. This shows which languages you know, so other editors know which languages you'll be working on, and what they can ask you for help with.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! If you have any questions, bring them to the Wiktionary:Information desk, or ask me on my talk page. If you do so, please sign your posts with four tildes: ~~~~ which automatically produces your username and the current date and time.

Hi, thanks for your contributions. Two small points: when working in foreign (non-English) languages, try to give definitions as glosses rather than full-sentence definitions. Also, for adding context labels you can use {{context}} with a language parameter. Have a look at the changes I made to oláh‎. Ƿidsiþ 13:22, 12 April 2009 (UTC)


Per your edit to your user-page. You can either use the + button to create a new section with a heading, or you can use the [edit] buttons to edit a section. Just type below everyone else, use one more ":" than the person you are replying to.

so it looks like a reply. And sign your comments with ~~~~. Which makes a signature like: Conrad.Irwin 22:39, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Greek / Ancient GreekEdit

Please be aware that we have a distinction between these. See changes I made to araknofóbia. Nadando 01:58, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Hungarian entriesEdit

Hi, thank you for your Hungarian contributions. When you have a chance, please read Wiktionary:About Hungarian which is about how Hungarian entries should be added. Also, please review the changes I made to oláh, erdélyi, tót. Thanks. --Panda10 12:21, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Given namesEdit

Hi, it's good to see someone who is interested in given names. Please don't add pet forms to translation tables, one standard form of the name is usually enough. But variants and pet forms are easy to add in the language in question, see Fredde and Fredrik for example --Makaokalani 16:57, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. The only reason I added the pet forms too was because nowadays you may encounter them as proper given names as well, so I thought they were relevant. But I'll stick to the proper versions in the future then. ^^ Nederbörd 00:55, 15 January 2010 (UTC)


Hi Nederbörd!

I am interested to know how/where you found the Swedish translation for railgun, as I noticed there are no relevant google hits for "spårkanon". Med vänliga hälsningar //Diupwijk (talk) 11:49, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
