Transliteration of labels[edit]

Hello, you are working on transliteration of names and asked for rules of transliterations for different languages. I can provide for gu for sure and some basics of hi, mr and sa (I can review all of them) so where should I give them? Apologizing in advance if this is a wrong place.--Vyom25 (talk) 14:48, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Awesome, I start with gu and give you some results soon Amir (talk) 22:31, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Okay...--Vyom25 (talk) 05:04, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

@Vyom25:: Hey, Can you check these edits, please? Thanks Amir (talk) 23:26, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Well, They are perfect. I couldn't find any error. Eagerly waiting for others. Can you do it before 6 May because from 7th I will be absent from wikidata for considerable time.--Vyom25 (talk) 05:31, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
I started my bot, It is working Amir (talk) 06:29, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I also notified gu community about it and if someone agrees then if I am not available then someone from there will fill in for me. Since you are running the bot at the moment I think it will not be needed.--Vyom25 (talk) 07:41, 4 May 2015 (UTC)


Hi Ladsgroup, On the Dutch Wikipedia we have temporary categories for maintenance that are created each month and deleted when it has been emptied again. It does not makes sense to have does categories on Wikidata. Example: Q19821101 -> this one is used to contain those articles from the month of April that have no categories yet. Is there a way to skip this kind of categories from being imported to Wikidata? (It are four types of categories with each group all categories having the same prefix.)
Secondly: user pages are not allowed to be imported to Wikidata. On nl-wiki we have also categories for individual users that should not be imported to Wikidata either. How can we make sure those are not imported? Thanks! Romaine (talk) 07:28, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

PS: I must note that currently we are on nl-wiki actively working on adding articles and categories to Wikidata ourselves, including some statements, as we consider items with statements better than those imported without the basic statements. Is it possible to have nl-wiki on hold and not to import any pages from our wiki? Thanks! Romaine (talk) 07:31, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Hey, I removed Dutch from any script related to importing pages from Wikipedia. Should I removed Dutch from other wikis too? (like Wikiquote) Amir (talk) 11:12, 30 April 2015 (UTC)


Maria Treben (Q85451) is a writer and a woman. One bot added "author": author (Q482980), what is already redundant. Adding "female author": woman of letters (Q381353) is redundant², since this item is linked to all female writers and not only to fr:femme de lettres.[1] Can you reverse this edits? Cheers --Kolja21 (talk) 14:06, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

I will do it in May 9th. Best Amir (talk) 19:20, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanx! --Kolja21 (talk) 22:57, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Truncated naming of items (just "Gesetz" instead of full name)[edit]

Hi Ladsgroup,

there are quite a few items named simply "Gesetz" in German like Q19200670 (Q19200670) where your user:Dexbot added the name after the initial items were imported from Wikisource without any name. But the full name is for example Gesetz, betreffend die Feststellung eines zweiten Nachtrags zum Reichshaushalts-Etat für das Rechnungsjahr 1901. Would it be possible for the dexbot to correct this? I started to do it manually, but it got lengthy... Thanks, --S.K. (talk) 19:05, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Hey, I split titles by comma and use first part. I can make an exception for all pages in main namespace in German Wikisource if you think it is the right way and fix all of them Amir (talk) 20:50, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
