יונה בנדלאק (talkcontribsblockall projects)

Hi, I request "translation admin" permissions. Like you can see in my contributions, i translate to Hebrew all pages need to be translated. I find some time some page link that was change or i add "Special:MyLanguage/" where it need. With translation admin permission all those changes will be add automaticlly to the message need to betranslated? I just want to update page not add another page (at lease for now). To be honest i don't have experience on it but i read about it and i see how translatable pages are. I translate on different wikimedia project for 2 years and more so i have experience about about Translate extension. - yona b (talk) 14:41, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Symbol keep vote.svgSymbol support vote.svg Speedily Approved. Well suited for the task, with prior translation edits to prove it. Furthermore יונה בנדלאק has been an active Wikimedia user since 2008, and is currently administrator and checkuser on Hebrew Wikipedia, as well as admin on Wikidata. Moreover – and contrary to the administrator user access level – approval for translation administrator user access level does not require a formal poll or community agreement. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 22:21, 11 January 2017 (UTC).

I would like to request the translation administrator's right to help mark other translation pages of the project for translation and contribute with the translation, I have had the opportunity to test the translation tool in test wikis and I have also read the guide to prepare a page for translation. Thanks. Alvaro Molina ( - ) 08:04, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

Stïnger (talkcontribsblockall projects)

Hello. I've been working in translations in Wikispecies since a long time. I've started editing here since 2016 and I know how to translate pages in other languages such as spanish (my native language), italian, japanese (very basic to read and speak, and its my favorite language) portuguese or galician, languages that I dominate. I've already hold translation admin in test wikidata (with admin rights as well) so, I know how to use the tools and I would like to help working here. If there is a problem, tell me about it and I will improve. I will also look and reply new topics at the Translation admins' noticeboard. Thanks.

Since I've already got my work cut out for me as a Wikispecies bureaucrat, I don't really have the time needed to also help out with any extensive tasks related to actually translating the site. However being assigned to the Translation administrators user group would be very helpful in order to assist with general housekeeping such as reverting vandalism to translations, deleting duplicates of translated pages and so forth; especially since the majority of the current Translation administrators log in rather infrequently.

CyberTroopers (talkcontribsblockall projects)

I would like to contribute as a translator in Wikiscpecies for Malay language because there was small numbers of active translator in Malay version or maybe none. Malay is my first languange and English the second. So no doubt to do so. CyberTroopers (talk) 14:19, 29 November 2018 (UTC) CyberTroopers (talk) 14:19, 29 November 2018 (UTC)



  1. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. I assume the user has good intentions, but I'm afraid I have to vote no considering their contributions to Wikispecies currently total up to just three edits.Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 19:30, 3 December 2018 (UTC).
  2. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. I agree with Tommy, but would also like to encourage @CyberTroopers: to invest more time and work here, and renew an application after a descent output, where you can show us that you need the user right. Dan Koehl (talk) 00:34, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
  3. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. I would also urge this candidate to contribute, particularly, if they wish, by adding data for Malayan taxa and even dealing with redlinked endemics. Andyboorman (talk) 13:56, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
