Hello. Please be much more careful when adding translations in languages you don't know well. For example, all German nouns must be capitalised and the gender checkboxes should be marked for all languages that have grammatical gender. Thank you! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 01:07, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Yes, you're right, I'm sorry. I should probably stay with my language.
Those translations we're translated by humans, but that tiny detail was missing. Liggliluff (talk) 11:54, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Creating redirect {{hu-ipa}}[edit]

Hi, what is the purpose of the redirect to {{hu-IPA}}? --Panda10 (talk) 16:43, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

Because {{fa-ipa}}, {{ko-ipa}} exists, and if people are used to these, it'll be easier for them to find the other, and it's quicker and easier to not having to shift case.
But then, the other templates doesn't have lowercase redirects: {{ar-ipa}}, {{ca-ipa}}, {{cs-ipa}}, {{eo-ipa}}, {{et-ipa}}, {{fi-ipa}}, ...
And then you got: {{grc-IPA}}/{{grc-ipa}}
I believe the standard naming convention is xx-IPA. But I will bring up the subject at Beer Parlour. --Panda10 (talk) 18:34, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

lábujjhegyenjáró[edit]

Hi Liggliluff, are you sure about this word? Can you refer me to the source where you found it? Google returns 9 hits, none of them are relevant. (It is a username of someone.) In English Wikipedia, unguligrade or ungulate is linked to Hungarian patások. Normally, in an adjective role, when used for a human being, it is written in two words, lábujjhegyen járó. Your Babel says you don't know Hungarian. May I ask what the reason is for adding Hungarian words? --Panda10 (talk) 21:36, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Mostly for making it easier for me to locate it for future research. Maybe lábujjhegyenjáró was too far of a stretch, but at least talponjáró and ujjonjáró shall be correct when I was talking to a Hungarian friend who was referring to a dictionary.
I'll admit I jumped to a conclusion to fast, and I shall not do that.
