Hello! I'm Ultimateria, an admin here since November 2009. I have a BA in Spanish and a Master's in Translation Studies. I am also a Certified Healthcare Interpreter™.

I'm happy to help other users with Spanish and Catalan, so don't hesitate to leave me a message or tag me in a discussion.

If you're looking for ways to help the project[edit]

Any language[edit]

  • Strengthen connections between entries: adding derived terms, related terms, and alternative forms, and making sure all these entries link to each other. For example, "quickly" should link to "quick" in its etymology, and "quick" should link to "quickly" in its derived terms.
  • Add references to entries: this gives additional resources to users, and it lends this project legitimacy. See Category:Reference templates by language.

English[edit]

If you're a native English speaker, there is a lot of entry maintenance you can do. Explore the main categories, Category:Requests concerning English and Category:English entry maintenance, or take a look at the following list. Feel free to ask me for formatting help, and check out Wiktionary:Entry layout.

  • Category:Requests for quotations in English: many of these are looking for quotes by specific authors, but it's typically fine to use a quote by another author.
    • There's a tool that can help a lot with this using Google Books, and you can activate it by going to Special:Preferences, the Gadgets tab, and enabling "Quiet Quentin" in the bottom section. The gadget appears by the search bar.
    • You can also use quotes from a publication by filling out the parameters at {{quote-journal}}.
  • Category:Requests for example sentences in English: an easy way to help out, just make sure you use the word in such a way that demonstrates its meaning.
  • Wiktionary:Todo: a big list of categories linking to formatting and cleanup requests. Some pages are outdated, but if you post in the Wiktionary:Grease Pit, someone will probably help you update them.

Other languages[edit]

The main categories are Category:Requests by language and Category:Entry maintenance by language. Even with a basic level, you can do the following:
