Cherry Creek Schools: article request[ኮድ አርም]

Believe it or not, there is a school system in Colorado with Amharic-speaking students. en:Cherry Creek School District maintains an Amharic website, http://www.cherrycreekschools.org/Amharic/Pages/default.aspx - It is located in the Denver, Colorado metropolitan area. Are you interested in making a short stub on this district also? Thank you, WhisperToMe (talk) 08:27, 17 ሜይ 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Small stub created at ቼሪ ክሪክ የትምህርት ድስትሪክት. Thank you Whisper for pointing out all these relevant subjects. Elfalem (talk) 02:57, 20 ሜይ 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No problem :) - I want to get the Ethiopian community in the United States involved on this Wikipedia, so making these stubs will help them find it WhisperToMe (talk) 18:32, 20 ሜይ 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Int'l Community School[ኮድ አርም]

Thank you so much :) WhisperToMe (talk) 22:11, 11 ጁን 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Elfalem, I've added a photo to ኃይሌ ገብረ ሥላሴ -- would you mind fixing the caption for the photo please. Cheers, Russavia (talk) 14:32, 13 ጁን 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Two more possibilities[ኮድ አርም]

Elfalem, Are you interested in these subjects?

Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 18:52, 14 ጁን 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for doing these! WhisperToMe (talk) 16:43, 16 ኦገስት 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

More possibilities for articles: "Flood" and "water cycle"[ኮድ አርም]

Elfalem, another idea for an article is en:Flood

I found a video in Amharic from the government of King County, Washington about flooding:

I hope it can be of use as an external link

Also, en:Water cycle also does not yet have an article in Amharic. I found File:Watercycleamharichigh.jpg which is a diagram of the water cycle in Amharic made by the US government.

About the image http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/graphics/watercycletitleamharic.gif ... The text is የውሃ ኡደት ሥዕላዊ መግለጫ, right? I consulted Amharic dictionary.com and it seems to say that it is "Water cycle pictorial representation" - Is this correct?

Also... en:Central Statistical Agency (Ethiopia)

Thank you, WhisperToMe (talk) 19:32, 21 ጁን 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for doing the Central Statistical Agency! Do you have plans to do "water cycle" and "flood"? WhisperToMe (talk) 16:45, 16 ኦገስት 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry I haven't been around for a while. I now have created የውሃ ኡደት and ጎርፍ. And your translation of the water cycle picture is spot on! Elfalem (talk) 06:01, 17 ኦገስት 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you! The person who did the water cycle picture translation is Dr. Getachew Belaineh, St. Johns River Water Management District, Palatka, Florida. WhisperToMe (talk) 17:02, 18 ኦገስት 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

1,000 Ethiopian photos on Commons[ኮድ አርም]

Selam Elfalem, I have been busy, busy with getting Flickr photographers to relicence their photos so that we can upload them to Commons, and I had a photographer yesterday relicence his stream of approximately 2,000, which I have duly uploaded to Commons. If you look at the photos at commons:Category:Photographs by Rod Waddington you will see that approximately half of these photos are from Ethiopia, and he has a lot of photos of the various ethnic groups of the Southern region of Ethiopia, as well as a lot of other topics. Just thought I'd give you a heads up that these photos are available, and perhaps they might be useful to encourage article development here on Amharic Wikipedia. I hope they come in useful.

Article requests[ኮድ አርም]

Sorry, I forget where I put article requests. Where do I put en:Ethiopian Airlines Flight 702? I think there should be an article in Amharic about it.

Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 13:09, 5 ኤይፕርል 2014 (UTC)

this is the page for new requests. I've already added your request. Elfalem (talk) 08:37, 8 ኤይፕርል 2014 (UTC)

Ethiopian text transcription request[ኮድ አርም]


This website has the Amharic name of the "Debre Selam Medahnealem Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church" http://medahnealem.com/ in Houston. What is the transcription of the Amharic name? I want to put the Amharic name in en:Christianity in Houston#Ethiopian and en:Ethnic_groups_in_Houston#Ethiopians

Hello Abel,
Welcome, it's great to hear about your interest! We only have a small number of editors on this wikipedia, so we greatly appreciate all the contributions we can get. If you are familiar with the syntax for editing (very easy to pick up if you're not), please go ahead and start editing and creating articles. I can help answer any questions you may have. I'm also interested to hear where did the African Wikimedia gathering take place? and were there any other individuals interested in contributing? Thanks and looking forward to your contributions.

How can I help?[ኮድ አርም]

Hello, I'm new here and I'd like to offer my skills. I'm fluent in Amharic and I've an extensive knowledge of MediaWiki. I'm also quite good at making templates and incorporate Semantic Forms if the extension is already installed. Is there a list of templates that the Amharic Wikipedia requires? If not, can we make one? So far I've only made templates that I noticed are missing compared to the English Wikipedia (you can check my contributions). Let me know. Thanks. Genemie (talk) 04:58, 10 ኦገስት 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello Genemie, thank you for offering help. Currently, we don't have a list of templates but feel free to start one. I noticed on your user page that you would like to "bring back the ሁለት ፡ ነጥብ". As this is a significant change for the wiki, I ask you to please start a discussion on ውክፔዲያ ውይይት:ምንጭጌ so that we may reach a consensus on the topic before embarking on such work. Thank you.

Request for Amharic translation of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961 image[ኮድ አርም]

Hi, Elfalem! A user at the Wikimedia Commons made this image using the final report of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961: File:Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961 seating plan.svg

I am interested in having him make an Amharic version, so how do you state the following in Amharic?

  • Fatal injury (A death) - ለሞት ያበቃ ከፍተኛ ጉዳት
  • Survivors with serious or minor injuries - በከፍተኛ ወይም አነስተኛ ተጎድተው የተረፉ
  • Survivors with no injury - ያለጉዳት የተረፉ
  • Unoccupied seat - ያልተያዘ መቀመጫ
  • Flight attendant's seat - የበረራ አስተናጋጅ መቀመጫ
  • Galley (Cooking area on an aircraft) - የምግብ ማሰናጃ ቦታ
  • Lavatory (Toilet) - መጸዳጃ ቤት
  • Closet - ቁም ሳጥን

That way the user can make a version of the picture in Amharic.

Thank you WhisperToMe (talk) 19:44, 4 ሰፕቴምበር 2014 (UTC)

Hi Whisper! I've added my translations next to your message above. Elfalem (talk) 05:42, 7 ሰፕቴምበር 2014 (UTC)
Thank you so much! I notified Fred the Oyster so he can make the Amharic version Commons:User_talk:Fred_the_Oyster#Request_for_Amharic_of_File:Ethiopian_Airlines_Flight_961_seating_plan.svg. As for the image description: How do you say "The seat plan of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961" in Amharic? WhisperToMe (talk) 14:33, 26 ሰፕቴምበር 2014 (UTC)
Here is: File:Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961 seating plan am.svg WhisperToMe (talk) 10:51, 27 ሰፕቴምበር 2014 (UTC)
