North Sami articles and templateEdit


Can you translate and upload en:Template:Lang-az, en:.az and en:Azerbaijani Wikipedia in North Sami Wikipedia? They should be short. I am interested in languages that are not spoken by many millions and/or are ancient and are not widespread on the internet.

Konsumentombudsmannen countryEdit


I noticed that you added Finland as the country of Finnish Consumer Ombudsman (Q18243403). The problem is that the Swedish Wikipedia link is about the Swedish equivalent agency. Not sure how to resolve this? Should we create a separate item for the Swedish agency and remove the svwiki-link? Popperipopp (talk) 12:48, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Ah, yes, förlåt. A new item needs to be created since they are two separate agencies. Usually I catch those, but this one somehow slipped by. There's also one for Norway and one for Denmark. I've created a general hypernym for consumer ombudsman that we can link each of these to. -Yupik (talk) 14:14, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
Also we might need two separate ones for the person holding the title of consumer ombudsman and the office of the ombudsman for each case... -Yupik (talk) 14:28, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! I created an item Swedish Consumer Ombudsman (Q99186433) for the Swedish position for now. I agree that there should be different items for the office and the agency. I'm planning on cleaning this up for all the ombudsman in Sweden. Popperipopp (talk) 14:55, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
That's a great idea! Hopefully I'll get some time before next year to do the same for Finland :) -Yupik (talk) 16:07, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
It seems for Sweden, at least, that your ombudsman is an actual person who heads the Q1788830: "The Swedish Consumer Agency is headed by a Director General who is also the Consumer Ombudsman (Konsumentombudsman, KO)." So for that one, you might only need the one item :) -Yupik (talk) 16:19, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
