Iwashi[Hlela umthombo]

Iwashi (isiNgisi: Clock) One paragraph, unformatted. No Categories. No interwiki links from Wikidata. -- Deborahjay (talk) 16:26, 20 uNcwaba 2017 (UTC)

Hi again, my Google translator show me that this page is really about "clock", we should add interlinks and an image. DARIO SEVERI (talk) 06:01, 31 uNcwaba 2017 (UTC)
Actions taken: interwiki links added via Wikidata; image added from the Wikimedia Commons (with more info requested from the file creator).
Actions pending: We need the isiZulu terms for Category:Machines, Category:Technology, and Category:Science and Technology
Note: These three form a Category tree, with intermediate Cats omitted at this stage; these would help with other unCategorized pages per Special pages) See also Strategy for Categories in ZU WP and zu:Special:Red link Categories, where I keep ideas posted for future collaboration.
The ZU WP awaits the return (ca. mid-September) of User:Fiso.dlamini and new recruits, who are invited to provide translations as we create the missing Categories and missing upper-level Cats based on other small WP projects. Thanks again, Dario, for checking in here! -- Deborahjay (talk) 08:59, 1 uMandulo 2017 (UTC)
Machines = (imi)Shini,
Machine = (um)Shini
Technology = (ubu)Chewepheshe
Science And Technology = (i)Sayensi nobu Chwepheshe.
Note the letters I put in brackets; we don't put them in brackets in daily language use. I only did it for you. The letters in brackets change with context. Notice how they changed in Machine and Machines; Machine being plural.

Justin Timberlake[Hlela umthombo]

Justin Timberlake - a long article in isiZulu, needs Wikifying: internal links, section headings, Categories. -- Deborahjay (talk) 07:09, 22 uNcwaba 2017 (UTC)

Air[Hlela umthombo]

Air (isiZulu: Umoya?) page should be moved to its name in isiZulu! Text, unformatted. -- Deborahjay (talk) 08:37, 22 uNcwaba 2017 (UTC)

Olá Deborah, I checked in two dictionaries on-line and I got the word 'umoya' for 'air'. DARIO SEVERI (talk) 14:54, 3 uZibandlela 2017 (UTC)
Ay, @DARIO SEVERI: - We non-speakers can't be sure of this. My new Oxford EN<>ZU School Dictionary (via - free shipping!) gives this word for air/wind/spirit, besides the inflection prefixes that affect the meaning (though perhaps not when the word stands alone outside of a sentence.) I'd rather wait here - but you see, even when our very few Zulu-speakers are editing, I make progress every day. I'll give you a proper update soon. -- Cheers, Deborahjay (talk) 17:20, 3 uZibandlela 2017 (UTC)

IKaratshi (isiNgisi: Karate ?) This page and Talk:IKaratshi seem to have only junk text. Can this be redone with proper content? -- Deborahjay (talk) 20:21, 22 uMandulo 2017 (UTC)
