Hello all. I came here to help with the translation of the interface for the Yiddish language (yi).

I contribute mainly on the en he and yi Wikipedias.

I was temporary administrator 2 times of the Yiddish Wikipedia.

My mother tongue is Yiddish. I can read and write English and Hebrew at an intermediate level. I also know a little German.

Please help me in my ongoing Yiddish translation project

Usually my translations are only a first draft because i cannot have a clue where does this message appear? I am not able to make a proper translation without having seen the context of this message. after time i use the wikipedia i can comprehend fully that the translation needs change in context of its use. So it can be updated more then just a few times.
