Hello, thanks for your contributions to Wiktionary. I am going to stick the normal welcome script at the bottom of this message, but I wanted to point a few things out to you first. I noticed you were adding translations using the translation boxes, that is great! Please be sure to notice which section you are adding the translations to though, for instance on the page crouch you put inclinación and genuflexión as translations of the verb to crouch rather than as translations of the noun crouch. I have sorted that out for you. Please also check the glosses at the top of the section you are adding translations to, since not all translations are isomorphic; some senses will be translated differently than other senses. If you have any questions about translating here on Wiktionary please don't hesitate to ask! As I promised, here is the usual welcome text:
Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contribution so far. Here are a few good links for newcomers:
- How to edit a page 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.
- Entry layout explained (ELE) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard, the easiest way to do this is to copy exactly an existing page for a similar word.
- Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words Wiktionary is interested in including. There is also a list of things that Wiktionary is not for a higher level overview.
- The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
- We have discussion rooms in which you can ask any question about Wiktionary or its entries, a glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
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.
