I've been stuck at 69 in German for close to two years, so a quick thanks to whoever happened to upvote me to 70 this morning. It's nice to see some action there again.

I'm sure you can narrow that list down to a handful of people. :-)

What articles are you translating? I am currently slogging my way through a biography of Trump. (Since I live in Canada, I take some interest in US politics). Very few people are still working on it, so, if you want to visit, I will be glad to look at your work and upvote if warranted. I am pretty sure it would be warranted since you are at a higher level than myself! :)

Thanks - but if you're below my level, your votes won't count! I mostly do history- or geography-related Wikipedia articles, and I try to stick with a few articles until they're finished. One of the things I don't like seeing are all of these partly-finished articles twisting in the wind.

I'm in the US; a Justin Trudeau bio might be interesting, though the German version would probably be pretty short.

I'm on level 11- definitely below you. But I also like history (not geography though). Post on my stream of you do Justin- I would certainly join you! Better still, if you like history, try his dad, Pierre Eliot Trudeau. Fascinating man.

He certainly was. I'll keep you in mind if I ever look into doing Trudeau... I wonder if there are decent German articles on Canadian history to translate (that aren't about the German embassy in Ottawa or something like that) - it seems to me that most of the good ones would be in French (or, obviously, English).
