Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

- Entry layout explained
- How to edit a page
- How to start a page
- Wiktionary Sandbox (a safe place for testing syntax)
I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! By the way, you can sign your name on Talk (discussion) and vote pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~, which automatically produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the beer parlour or ask me on my Talk page. Again, welcome! --Dvortygirl 19:45, 25 December 2005 (UTC)
Please do not enter "orphan" translations. If an entry does not have a meaning listed yet, it is 100% unclear which meaning a translation applies to. --Connel MacKenzie T C 07:33, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
Invitation to contribute
You might or might not already be aware that there is now a new system in place for marking translations that need to be checked (those that are suspected of being incorrect or those where it is not clear which sense(s) of a word the translations apply to). (See here for the Beer parlour discussion on this topic.)
Translations to be checked are now categorised by language. For example, Category:Translations_to_be_checked_(French) contains a list of all words where French translations need to be checked. This is designed to make the checking of these translations easier to maintain and work with.
I'm contacting everyone who has expressed an interest in working on translations or has indicated in Wiktionary:Babel that they have a good knowledge of a particular foreign language or languages.
If you want to reply to this message, please do so on my talk page. Thanks for your help you can provide.

- Thanks for offering to help. Turkish is one of the languages for which we have very few contributors, so anything you can do, whenever you have time, will be immensely useful. — Paul G 11:03, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
