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.

Again, welcome! --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 03:45, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Translation requestEdit

Hi. Could you please translate this passage for me from en->th?

"Hi. I am an 18-year-old bisexual girl looking for a sweet, older girl to talk to. I do not speak Thai, but I'd like to learn the language. I am from the United States." Philmonte101 (talk) 20:41, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Here are the translations:
  1. (colloquial tone) "ดีจ้ะ เราเป็นสาวอายุ 18 เป็นไบ อยากได้สาวน่ารัก ๆ อายุมากกว่า มาเป็นเพื่อนคุย เราพูดไทยไม่ได้ แต่อยากเรียนภาษาไทยนะ เราอยู่เมกาจ้ะ"
  2. (a bit more formal) "สวัสดีจ้ะ เราเป็นสาวอายุ 18 เป็นไบเซ็กชวล อยากได้สาวน่ารัก ๆ อายุมากกว่า มาเป็นเพื่อนคุย เราพูดไทยไม่ได้ แต่อยากเรียกภาษาไทยนะ เราอยู่อเมริกาจ้ะ"
  3. (formal) "สวัสดีค่ะ ดิฉันเป็นผู้หญิง อายุ 18 ปี และรักร่วมสองเพศ ดิฉันกำลังมองหาหญิงสาวที่น่ารักและอายุมากกว่ามาเป็นเพื่อนคุย ดิฉันพูดภาษาไทยไม่ได้ แต่ก็อยากเรียนรู้ภาษาไทย ดิฉันมาจากสหรัฐอเมริกาค่ะ"
Usage alerts:
  1. The first and second translations sound friendlier and livelier than the third one, which is formal and can make you look/sound somewhat stern or serious.
  2. The third translation also contains certain technical terms which general listeners might find peculiar (though comprehensible).

ช้าง#Adjetive header and templateEdit

It appears to have a typo in the header and I was going to change it to "Adjective" but then I noticed that it's using the {{th-noun}} template. Should it be using the {{th-adj}} template instead? I'm not familiar with the Thai language at all and didn't feel comfortable changing it myself. --RandomPalo (talk) 23:00, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Looks like someone else fixed it. Sorry for bothering you. --RandomPalo (talk) 08:25, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
