Thanks. I've actually edited the Finnish Wiktionary for a longer time, but now decided to contribute a bit here as well :-) Olli hki

Hi Olli, Great to see you contribute here. One small remark about those disambiguation labels for the translations though. It's great to you add them, but their purpose is to link together the definitions with the translations and the synonyms. So each definition gets a distinct label and the corresponding translation, synonym or antonym gets the corresponding label. They aren't there for human consumption though. They serve to link together definitions and translations in a totally unambiguous way for a computer program/script/bot. If they aren't present, it is very hard to code a bot that guesses what belongs together. People are still a lot more intelligent than any program one can write and a hint is enough for us.
