Greetings! Could you translate for me the following labels into Bengali?

English Bengali
Ancient Greek playwright

(man who wrote plays in ancient Greece)

প্রাচীন গ্রীক নাট্যকার
tragedy by Aeschylus

(tragic play written by Aeschylus (Q40939))

ইস্কিলুস রচিত বিয়োগান্তক নাটক
tragedy by Euripides

(tragic play written by Euripides (Q48305))

ইউরিপিদিস রচিত বিয়োগান্তক নাটক
tragedy by Sophocles

(tragic play written by Sophocles (Q7235))

সফোক্লিস রচিত বিয়োগান্তক নাটক
comedy by Aristophanes

(comic play written by Aristophanes (Q43353))

অরিস্তফেনিস রচিত মিলনান্তক নাটক
comedy by Menander

(comic play written by Menander (Q118992))

মিনান্দার রচিত মিলনান্তক নাটক

Thanks for any help you can provide. I can paste them in to all the data items where they apply, but I need help because I do not know Bengali myself.

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

I have translated the labels. Please don't hesitate to knock me if you need any other help in Bengali.

EncycloPetey (talkcontribs)

I've noticed that neither Aristophanes (Q43353) nor Menander (Q118992) has a Bengali label. There are also no links to bn.WP so these two comic playwrights may have no articles there. They are the two most important comic playwrights of antiquity. If you can determine how their names are written in Bengali and add the labels, it would be appreciated. I am trying to ensure that the great writers of Greek drama have data items accessible in all the major languages of India and its neighboring countries.

You recently ran a QuickStatements batch to change the labels of all Lok Sabha constituencies from, for example, 'Osmanabad' to 'Osmanabad Lok Sabha constituency'. The Help page for labels, however, says that this sort of disambiguation should go in the description, not in the label itself. Would you be able to undo that batch?

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

Actually, I was not disambiguating between two similar terms. Lok Sabha constituency or Parliamentary constituency is the term included in the constituencies. For example, whenever a parliamentary election happens in India, Bankura Lok Sabha constituency is the term used by electorates, candidates, media, election commission and goverment etc., not only the term Bankura only. To be frank, Bankura Lok Sabha constituency comprises of area outside Bankura district, so the area of Bankura, Bankura district, Bankura Lok Sabha constituency etc. are defined as completely different area. What I am trying to say, the term Lok Sabha Constituency is included in the proper name.

Oravrattas (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the explanation. Do you have a reference we could use for these officially being part of the name? I can find lots of places where results and other sources refer only to "Bankura", for example, rather than using "Bankura Lok Sabha constituency" (including the Lok Sabha website itself)

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

Hi, please check , , for example.

Oravrattas (talkcontribs)

Thanks for those. However, they don't really seem to show that this is part of the name. If anything, they use "Parliamentary Constituency" more than "Lok Sabha Constituency" (the latter doesn't even appear at all on your #3 link, AFAICS), which makes it look they're using this as a description rather than the name.

Many apologies, it was a mistake from my part. I didn't notice the discussion about not adding no value for living persons. Actually I was following the logic of this module. Anyway, I will undo my edits as soon as possible. Thanks,

Widar tool for label-a-thon instructions need

Info-farmer (talkcontribs)

Few contributors are using Widar tool. Am i correct? Is there any guiding page for it?

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

There are many tools connected to Widar? Which one are you talking about?

Info-farmer (talkcontribs)

How to add a description like this using a tool for a Tamil category. eg The category contains freedom fighters from TamilNadu. How to add the description to all the headings in the category?

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

The best way to get this the list of pages from Tamil Wikipedia is by using Petscan. The manual on how to use this is in this meta page. After you get the list in csv format, you can then add labels, descriptions, statements etc with Quickstatements tool. The manual of using this tool is here.

Info-farmer (talkcontribs)

My first edit by Quickstatements tool. I will contribute from tomorrow. Bye!

Hi, @VIGNERON: the labels were in Latin script, but for Bengali, we use Bengali script, for Tibetan, we use Tibetan script and for Hindi, we use Devanagari script. We don't use Latin script in these languages.

VIGNERON (talkcontribs)

Of course, it's in Latin script, the name is in Latin script. What label would you put then?

Bodhisattwa (talkcontribs)

@VIGNERON:, as I said, Bengali language dont use Latin script. The Bengali transliteration would be পেডেন এন টেওয়েলেড.
