Well, its certainly entertaining adding photos. Now what exactly is the batascarfa? A water dragon? a butter sponge? I guess if I get it wrong, my efforts will provide hours of laughter for the Irish reader. I think I might skip adding categories I think I could be truly dangerous with my non-existent understanding of the language and the somewhat unhelpful translations.
Kerry _____ From: wikimediaau-l-boun...@lists.wikimedia.org [mailto:wikimediaau-l-boun...@lists.wikimedia.org] On Behalf Of Craig Franklin Sent: Tuesday, 6 August 2013 11:50 AM To: Wikimedia-au Subject: [Wikimediaau-l] Looking for something a bit different? Try Fréamh an Eolais on Irish Wikipedia Hi All, This is only tangentially related to Australia, so if you prefer your emails to be strictly on topic then please move on. Since late July, Úsáideor:HusseyBot has been uploading recently free articles from Fréamh an Eolais onto the Irish Wikipedia. "Fréamh an Eolais", which roughly translates as "root of knowledge" is an Irish language scientific encyclopaedia composed by Matthew Hussey, a science academic at the Institiúid Teicneolaíochta Bhaile Átha Cliath (Dublin Institute of Technology). The content in Fréamh an Eolais has recently been licensed under as CC-BY-SA and also under the GFDL, thus making it eligible for inclusion on Wikimedia projects. It includes not just information on scientific concepts themselves, but also biographies of notable people in the world of science. http://ga.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speisialta:Contributions/HusseyBot Unfortunately, a lot of these articles do not have images or categories yet, and as Irish Wikipedia is still a small project it may take a long time before these new articles are linked up with the wealth of other information available in the Wikisphere. However (and this is where you come in), it's relatively easy by looking at the translations to determine what each article is about, and from there to add images from Commons or categories from other similar articles. Even if you can only do a couple of articles, any help would be appreciated! Cheers, Craig Franklin
