Dictionnaire raisonné de l’architecture française du XIe au XVIe siècle[edit]

This is entirely in French. Is there some reason to transcribe it here? --EncycloPetey (talk) 15:57, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

Yes. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 15:58, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
But it will then have to be transwikied to fr:WS, and and I understand it, the tools to do that are broken, with no immediate prospect for correction. Would it not be simpler to transcribe at fr:WS and avoid the move? ---EncycloPetey (talk) 15:59, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
It doesn't have to be transwikied. Why would it have to be transwikied? —Beleg Tâl (talk) 16:04, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
We don't host French works. --EncycloPetey (talk) 16:05, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
But we do host user translations of French works. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 16:10, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
Yes, but not the French original. --EncycloPetey (talk) 16:11, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
True. I'm not transcribing the French original. I'm translating it. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 16:12, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
Ah, that's an approach I haven't seen before. Hence, my confusion. As this isn't done very often, I'd recommend lots of big notices explaining the situation to avoid more conversations like this one. --EncycloPetey (talk) 16:15, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

The Mesa Stele[edit]

Proofread the three hebrew pages. You've done a magnificent job, but I can't understand why you consistently refrained from using the end characters??? — Ineuw talk 10:21, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

@Ineuw: Not being familiar with Hebrew characters, I generated the Hebrew text programatically from the Phoenician text that had already been proofread. The Phoenician alphabet doesn't have end characters, and I only learned that Hebrew does have end characters after I had already generated the Hebrew text. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 18:04, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
Fascinating. I realized that since they all followed a pattern, it was some kind of generated text, and I was just curious how you went about it. I was happy to help. — Ineuw talk 03:09, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

Note: I've added links to the relevant Portal (where I added a section on Moabite), as well as to the Wikipedia article on the Stele. On Wikipedia, I added a link back to this paper, and noted excplicitly on the article's Talk page that Compston's article now exists here, and that it isn't yet noted in the Bibliography for the Wikipedia article. So, we may hopefully see more Archaeology and Biblical studies folks around. --EncycloPetey (talk) 05:46, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

Coverdale Bible(Transcription Project)[edit]

I was doing a bit of transcription/heavy editing to OCR, and I noticed you'd done most of what was transcrived before I got there(a handful of pages) was done by you, but you didn't list it under transcription you've done. JustinCB (talk) 01:26, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Yep, I just provided scans to allow for future improvements, but it's not one of my transcription projects. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 02:37, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
That's OK, I was just hoping that someone else was actively working on it, but I suppose not. Doesn't it seem strange that all the projects relating to the bible don't have many people working on them? JustinCB (talk) 15:07, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes it does... only a couple of our dozen or so translations are even complete. :S I suspect a lot of it is to do with the sheer magnitude of the project. I try to improve our Bible collection where I can, but I don't have the time or patience for transcribing such a massive work. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 03:59, 19 January 2018 (UTC)


Hi brother. Can i request from you to restore this page in order to import it to arabic wikisource because when you but your request at village pump there was no user who have importer flag and now i have it so i want to import the previously mentioned page please.

@مصعب: The page was moved to mul:Selections from the Ṣaḥīḥ of al-Buḫārī; you should be able to import it from there. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 19:41, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
Yes check.svg imported Thanks--مصعب (talk) 22:19, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Bible pdfs[edit]

Hi. I can see the following files for where I cannot determine why they are uploaded to enWS. I also note that they are slim on required file data in {{information}}

Are you able to provide some advice on these. Thanks. — billinghurst sDrewth 03:45, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

They are the source for Bible (King James Version, 1611). Not uploaded to Commons because {{PD-nonUK}} is apparently a thing. I'll update the info tag next time I've got AWB fired up. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 20:08, 15 February 2018 (UTC)


Hi. Would you be so kind to use the {{book}} template to provide the publication details for the file; and in the Index: page, I noticed that the year of publication is 1935, presumably an error. Thanks. — billinghurst sDrewth 04:43, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
