Translation of Wiki content into Nepali language

Namaste dear friends!

Lot of you would probably wonder, why to translate the wiki: the most of educated Nepali can read english.
Well, according to this result:http://www.ef.pl/epi/ my own country, Poland, is very high noted, last year english knowledge was higher than in Germany. I´m an exception, I never learned english tongue

Despite of that, we started one translation action in the wiki.
Looking at polish thread regarding translation: https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=18611 there are over 121.000 visits.

After starting this action, the quality of map has been dramatically increased.
Why? Because even for people they are higher educated is sometimes difficult to undestand the exactly meaning of some definitions. And for people with middle enlish knowledge some definitions are too complicated. We have in Poland a lot of mappers under 18. They are still learning english but are smart enough to map, when they understand descriptions.

With other words: I would ask you after starting translations because this is crucial for winning a new mappers in Nepal.

Please use this thread also for requests: which pages should be translated first.

Best regards to all Nepali friends!

Re: Translation of Wiki content into Nepali language

The first content, which should be translated is, I believe:

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Ne:Natural
and
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Ne:Buildings

There is only knowledge of english and nepali neccesary. If somebody of you will help, I send plain text which should be translated and implement nepali translation in Wiki...

I´m hoping Mr. Budhathoki can help to find some helpers  wink
