Can someone explain why non-english definitions are listed on this page? We have different-language wiktionaries after all.169.229.84.26 03:29, 10 December 2006 (UTC) (User:Lensovet)

  • Other language wiktionaries are for speakers of those languages; for example the Japanese wiktionary gives its definitions in Japanese. Kappa 03:34, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm everything but happy with giving "Matt" as german translation of mate... Frensh word "pote" is absolutely correct and wide-spread, but - being native German - I never heard this "Matt", which I shurely would have retained my name being Matthias... I reckon "Kumpel" would be a faaar better trenslation! However never having participated in Wiktionary, I'd rather not to mess around changing it myself. And: I dunno if mate might be some ancient/local version of matt/beamless...?! here the german adjective "matt" (small m) would be a correct translation... Comments welcome on my Wikipedia (de)-page (user:Darth_Yoda) Thanks a lot! --89.80.184.14 17:35, 11 September 2007 (UTC) wiktionaries for english dictionaries and other
