Translation request

Hello India!

I am from Austria and need information about a Viennese writer in Hindi - I want to surprise four Indian friends of mine who speak Hindi as their native language but work in Austria. We are all interested in contemporary literature and we are discussing a lot about German and Indian books. I would be pleased if someone could translate the Wikipedia page of the writer Klaus Ebner to Hindi. He is an author whose text I appreciate highly. Unfortunately there is no translation of his works to Hindi (nor to English, except some short texts). It would be a great surprise if I could present this author to my friends with information in their own language. If you would do me this favor, I indicate below the English and the German page, which have almost the same content.

Many many thanks in advance for your appreciated help! Greetings from Vienna.

--Karin Smetana 12:53, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

P.S.: And please don't forget to place the link to the Hindi page, when you create it, to the English respectively German version of the article in order I can find it. Thank you again.

Since there have been misunderstandings, I want to clarify that I do not ask for a "private" translation for me. I want the article about this writer, which exists in many other Wikis, translated to Hindi, too. Please understand my request as a pointer to this Austrian writer, and a kickoff for another article on literature in the Hindi Wikipedia. Thank you very much.

--Karin Smetana 10:17, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

German name in Hindi - please help!

Hello, Could you please tell me how the German name "Klaus EBNER" would be said/written in Hind? Thank you very much in advance.

--Karin Smetana 09:18, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Hello, here you are asking how to pronounce or write the name Klaus Ebner in Hindi. so the name Klause Ebner in Hindi will be "klaaj ebner" Varunkau 06:08, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

Actually 'klaauj ebnar' should be a better translation -Mskadu

Free Software Conference at Thiruvanathapuram

Dear All,

Jimmy wales and two other wikimedia foundation members will be in Thiruvananthapuram to attend the fsfs conference on the 10th and 11th of December 2008. The fsfs and space-kerala organizers has provided an opportunity for Malayalam wikipedians to participate, conduct a session/panel discussion related to Malayalam Wikipedia in that conference.

We are planning to have a meeting with Jimmy Wales and team after our sessions. We would like to know your interest in joining with us for this meeting. We may even plan an indian wiki meet there, if there is enough participation from other wikipedias. Please mail me at if you are interested; so that we can ask the organizers to make arrangement for this.--Shijualex 19:28, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Another german name

Hello, I'd like to know how to write the german name "Doris Antony" in Hindi/Devanagari. Thanx in advance. --DorisAntony 07:35, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

It'll be written as "doris Antony" in Hindi. It can also be written as "doris Antony". Actually in Hindi, there are two sounds for "Do". "do" and "do". Pronunciation depends on the context. The first one will be pronunced as "Do in Door" and the second one as "D in Dar es Salaam". I don't know that how do you pronunce this name, but a native English speaker will pronunce it as in "Door" and a native Japanese speaker will pronunce it as in "Dar es Salaam". --Rohit Rawat 11:06, 3 April 2009 (IST)

Actually I also speak some basic German, the name would be better pronounced as 'dorees aantoni' -Mskadu 11:08, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

--- Hi Antony,

If you spell your name in International Phonetic Alphabet (IPL), it can easily and correctly be transliterated into Devanagari.

German 'd' is the same as the English 'd', for which unfortunately, there are no sufficiently close Devanagari equivalents. Either of the spellings given above would be close. Maquahuitl 14:36, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi! Need your help…

Hi! I'm from Polish Wiktionary. We are translating names of our main templates into various languages (our top 50) in order to help users who don't speak Polish understand our articles. When they change language in preferences, they'll see those words in bold in their native language, so they can understand the article and edit it. I wonder if you would be helpful and translate for us just a few linguistic terms into Hindi. How about that?

PS. Please note that some of them must be in plural. We'd be very grateful Best regards! --PiotrekSzwecja 20:41, 2 August 2009 (UTC) anunaad Singh 03:45, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi, your translations are as follows:

  • pronunciation - uchchaaran
  • definitions (plural) - paribhaashaaeain
  • inflection - roopaantaran
  • examples (plural) - udaaharan
  • syntax - vaakyavinyaas
  • collocations (plural) - sahaprayog
  • synonyms (plural) - samaanaarthi
  • antonyms (plural) - vipreetaarthi
  • related terms (plural) - sambandhit shabd
  • idioms (plural) - muhaavare
  • etymology - vyutpatti
  • notes (plural) - tippaniyaaain
  • translations (plural) - anuvaad
  • derived terms (plural) - vyutpann shabd
  • transliteration - lipyantaran
  • transcription - pratilekhan
  • sources (plural) – srot

You havd specified for plural terms too but in Hindi language many terms are written as the same in singular and plural but when using a particular word in a complete sentence it becomes clear that you are referring to a plural term. For example Monkey has the same singular and plural bandar but if it's used in a sentence like this vahaaain par bahut se bandar hain it is clear that one is telling that there are many monkies there not only one. Hope it helps. rohit raavat 04:28, 31 March 2010 (UTC) (with some edits by -Hemant wikikosh avishesh 05:54, 4 August 2010 (UTC))

WikiMedia India Newsletter

Hello Hindi WikiMedians, I am Shiju Alex from Malayalam Wikipedia.

There is an idea among some of the active Indian WikiMedians to bring out a News Letter each month about the community news of all the Indian Language Wikipedias. It will help us to share information about different Indian language Wikipedias. Now almost no interaction is happening between different Indian language Wikipedias. This needs to be changed

But for this, the support from a team of active Hindi WikiMedians is required. I request the support from least 2 WikiMedians to represent the Hindi Wiki projects. Please send me a mail at shijualexonline@gmail, so that we can move forward. Thanks. --Shijualex 12:42, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

I complained about this in tamil wikipedia village pump. and i was told that hindi wikipedia uses old code in logging in pages and it was not updated. And also in language options european languages are displayed. It would be nice if any or all of the indian languages are added. This will ncrease good relationship among indic wikipedias.

Hindi Wikipedia and student editing

Hi, I noticed this on the WikimediaIndia mailing list: According to it, 800 students studying Hindi in Christ University Bangalore are enrolled in some Education Program which involves Hindi WP. Is the community aware that such a situation exists? The last time an education program from India happened, it destroyed the English Wikipedia while a similar one on the Simple English Wikipedia was struck down. Please go thru it and let me know. --Rsrikanth05 (vaarta) 04:49, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Rsrikanth05. Yes, we are aware of the programme. But I believe it is in abeyance. "[D]estroyed English Wikipedia"? Don't you think you are exaggerating a bit? Only a very few articles were affected. And, considering the size of enwiki, it would actually amount to minuscule. Unfortunately, here also the initiative was a failure (in my opinion).<>< bill William kaumpatanvaarta 05:21, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
Okay, thank you for your feedback. As for enwp, I am not exaggerating. It did destroy a lot of articles and we are still working on fixing it and cleaning up the mess to this day. --Rsrikanth05 (vaarta) 08:56, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

most-perfect magic square from
the Parshvanath Jain temple in Khajuraho

Hi! Some years ago (in 2008) I received a picture about a most-perfect magic square from the Parshvanath Jain temple in Khajuraho named Chautisa Yantra. According to magic square#India Magic Squares and Cubes By William Symes Andrews, 1908, Open court publish company the square is more then thousand years old / from the 10th-century. There is text above the square. Can anybody provide a translation and or additional details about this text?

Hi לaaעaaרaaי רaaיaaיaaנaaהaaאaaרaaט, the text looks like it is in Devanagari script but it is not in Hindi, may be in Sanskrit (but I'm not sure). Try asking for help on Sanskrit Wikipedia. I'm very sorry for not coming up with any satisfactory answer. Other Hindi Wiki users please help לaaעaaרaaי רaaיaaיaaנaaהaaאaaרaaט. rohit raavat (vaarta) 03:36, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi לaaעaaרaaי רaaיaaיaaנaaהaaאaaרaaט / rohit, I guess this same pic is part of this article. It will be best to contact the Huffingtonpost writer for more info. --mujmmil (vaarta) 09:14, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks @rohit_raavat and @Hindustanilanguage for the feedback and the link. The image was uploaded by a friend from Vienna, Austria on my request. I will try to get in touch with as many people which have written about this square as possible.

United Nations seeks Hindi-English partnership

Someone at the United Nations made a post about a United Nations office doing data research on Hindi Wikipedia articles related to en:child marriage / baala_vivaah. They are requesting a volunteer for a few weeks.

This is interesting because the United Nations is an organization with excellent information to share and a partnership between them and Hindi Wikipedia would be nice. At the same time, this proposal is probably a waste of time because the person who wrote it does not have basic understanding of Wikipedia, Wikipedia almost certainly does not have the information they want, and they seem to want a lot of volunteer time and are not making any promise to give anything in return. It would be great if they would do something nice, like apply a free license to their Hindi educational information which has a restrictive copyright on it. I am not sure how interested they might be in a compromise or a fair partnership.

Anyone who is interested in exploring this may wish to contact the office in the job listing. Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:29, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

New Readers research


You may have heard that several teams at the Wikimedia Foundation are collaborating to do research in several countries as part of the New Readers project. The project aims for a better understanding of how people think about knowledge, learning, and the internet. With this, we can start to figure out why Wikipedia reading rates are so low in countries where internet usage is rising so quickly.

To learn this, we are doing qualitative research sprints in Mexico, Nigeria, and YES, India.

That's where you come in. We want our research to reflect needs and experiences of Wikimedia communities throughout India. Specifically: what questions do you have about general internet users in India? What groups (language, professional, regional) would you like to know more about? What barriers do you believe exist for potential Wikipedia readers? You can see our key priorities for this research here.

If you have thoughts or questions, please email me at! We will share our proposed research approach with your inputs incorporated wherever possible by next week. We're excited to work with you! JSutherland (WMF) (vaarta) 23:01, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
