Welcome to the English WV and thanks for dropping in!

You've probably noticed that I've translated the content from the Star article fr:Mombasa, much of which is written by you. I was happy to find a high quality of an African destination to translate, because we've had very few African featured articles. Mombasa is now nominated for Destination of the Month for probably Feb 2015.

If you have time, you're very welcome to have a look at Mombasa if there is something I've possibly misunderstood/mistranslated. ϒpsilon (talk) 09:16, 20 August 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hopefully you drop in to read this at some point. As I said I've nominated Mombasa for Destination of the Month, but one user wants more extensive descriptions of everything (please read the thread and comment if you like) before he can support the article. If you have something more to add to the article, it would be very appreciated. :) ϒpsilon (talk) 17:08, 1 September 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hey omondyi Why did you delete the text published in French with Google translation? Did I do something stupid to inform French, German and other tourists about the events in Iran? 👎 Masoudbarati33 (talk) 08:55, 6 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Masoudbarati33: Not Omondi here, but I'll respond anyway. Spamming an article with your personal information, as you did on fr:Special:Diff/516879 is unacceptable on any wiki. Those edits were rightfully reverted. This has got nothing to do with using machine translations (which I frequently do when translating articles from de.voy to en.voy).

I translated your speech into Farsi, I didn't understand anything and the translation was not correct, please explain it again in Farsi, thank you Masoudbarati33 (talk) 09:11, 6 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
What? This is the English Wikivoyage, not the Farsi Wikivoyage (fa:صفحهٔ_اصلی, if you need it). While there is no policy stating that all communication has to be in English, you can't expect users to respond to you in a language that's completely unfamiliar and foreign to most. If that was not clear enough, the simple answer is no, I'm not going to translate text into a language that I have next-to-zero knowledge about.

@Masoudbarati33: First of all, why did you start a discussion on a wiki for a contribution that took place on another wiki? Secondly, SHB2000 has already answered in its first intervention. And finally, the text introduced on Wikivoyage in French is absolutely not a translation of your text. --Omondi (talk) 11:51, 6 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
