Who is Deborahjay?[hlela | edit source]

I'm an experienced Wikipedian, expat American living on a kibbutz in Israel; a retired professional translator/editor/proofreader, polyglot netizen and sister in the family of Humanity. I believe in free access to information and I volunteer my skills and knowledge to promote this.

Why here?[hlela | edit source]

I'm here to help edit the Zulu Wikipedia because as a naturalized Israeli, I admire the South African national anthem and Johnny Clegg as models of coexistence. Oh, and because I love isicathamiya!

Focus list[hlela | edit source]

ZU language use[hlela | edit source]

Wherever possible I copy/paste ZU texts from others' edits, in which case the errors originate there. Any original writing I do in isiZulu is translated from English (en:zu) via Google Translate, which I use with caution. I invite you, the native speaker of ZU, to correct my texts by editing them -- and I'll study these via "Compare selected revisions" of our respective edits. (I'll do the same for your English, all for the sake of improving our language use.)
