Request for Info Box for the noted conductor/composer Samuel Adler (composer)

Hello fellow Wikipedians - If you have some extra time, kindly examine the article on the noted conductor and composer Samuel Adler (composer) who was born in Germany and immigrated to the United States in 1938 while fleeing the chaos in Europe prior to World War II. A request for an "Info Box - person" has been processed and was included on the article but appears to be subject to continuous deletion (perhaps because Adler is still alive?) Kindly consider using the "Info Box academic" template {{Infobox academic}} to rectify this problem as suggested here Wikipedia talk: WikiProject Composers, or perhaps assigning an "Infobox -Person" from the WikiProject Germany (or "Info box Musical Artist") since Adler was also an active German/American conductor who founded the historic Seventh Army Symphony Orchestra which helped to implement cultural diplomacy in Germany after World War II. He was awarded the U. S. Army's highest Medal of Honor for services to Music, commended by Dwight D. Eisenhower for his work in Germany and Europe, published several academic books on Orchestra, and Choral conducting, was a member of the faculty at several leading music conservatories including the Eastman School of Music and the Juilliard School for over 60 years, and was recognized by his academic peers by receiving several Honorary Doctorate of Music degrees as well as membership in Sigma Alpha Iota and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. I would be grateful for any insights which you might wish to share on the articles talk page here Talk:Samuel Adler (composer) regarding whether an infox should be assigned to the article from WikiProject Germany. Many thanks for your thoughtful consideration and contributions to the discussion along with my best wishes for your continued success on Wikipedia in the future With warmest regards...

Translation of supplementary data in reference

For a reference to a German-language publication, is it common to translate things like "Band", "Herausgeber", "Seite" etc., even if the publication title remains German? Jmar67 (talk) 18:27, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

Yes. –♠Vami_IV†♠ 18:28, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

Deutscher or Deutsche?

Would someone provide some input at Talk:Deutscher Commercial Internet Exchange § Deutsche or Deutscher ? please? —[AlanM1(talk)]— 02:59, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Culture of Germany

  • The page is obsolete, the majority of sources is older than 8 years.
  • Regional/federal features are descrbed in sevearal sections. I believe they should be mentioned at the beginning.
  • The definition of German culture probably includes the Austrian one (German languge). Such definition is unsourced, Austria is mentioned mainly in the Music section.
  • The differences between East and West arn't mentioned (with the exception of Religion).
  • Minority cultures aren't described (with the exception of Cusine).
  • Informations about immigration are obsolete.
  • German industry and German products (cars) belong to German culture.Xx236 (talk) 06:06, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

German museums on the List of music museums

Hi there, I have introduced the List of music museums, and a number of German museums are written in German (also a number in Dutch) but not in English. Are there users at this project that like to write some of these articles? Best regards, Ymnes (talk) 17:23, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Grüß Gott, Coordinator here. I am interested in translating articles for Germany and for Austria. Is the present list complete? –♠Vami_IV†♠ 18:24, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
That's geat to read! Museums are opened and closed each year, and a complete list is not really possible in practice. Nevertheless, I have quite exhausted my search for German and Austrian music museums. For these two countries I guess it's quite complete. All the museums from there you see now, have been written in Dutch yet. In case you find some more museums, and write those articles, I will take care for Dutch versions of the museums too. :-) Thanks for your help! Ymnes (talk) 18:35, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
In order to not only ask, but to give something back as well, I have written the Composers Quarter Hamburg and the six associated museums for this project. Ymnes (talk) 10:40, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

RfC on election/referendum naming format

An RfC on moving the year from the end to the start of article titles (e.g. South African general election, 2019 to 2019 South African general election) has been reopened for further comment, including on whether a bot could be used move the articles if it closed in favour of the change: Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (government and legislation)#Proposed change to election/referendum naming format. Cheers, Number 57 15:36, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

RfC about mentions in the Wehrmachtbericht

G'day all, a RfC has been started on the Milhist talk page regarding mentions in the Wehrmachtbericht, a daily broadcast about the activities of the Wehrmacht during WWII. Your input would be welcomed. Cheers, Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 04:21, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

help needed about a former Prussian statesman

We seem to have been stuck for over a decade at Talk:Carl Friedrich Heinrich, Graf von Wylich und Lottum#Prime Minister of Prussia?? - so I'm hoping a native German speaker could have a quick look at the German-language sources and help clarify the position this person had held. TIA. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 10:28, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

Translation help?

Hi! I often come across a German word I don't know; this time it's one I can't find in the dictionary (Chemnitz) either: Bruttrieb. My guess is that it means broodiness, but I'd really like to be sure. The context is "Eigenschaften und Leistung: Guter Fleischansatz. Jahres-Eierleistung im 1. Jahr 150, im 2. Jahr 120 weißschalige Eier. Kein Bruttrieb.". Thank you! Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 17:44, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

The translation is correct. "Bruttrieb" is the instinct to brood (German noun Brut). The word is also used in this article: de:Deutscher Sperber. -- Reise Reise (talk) 19:47, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
Thank you, Reise Reise, most helpful. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 15:10, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Featured quality source review RFC

Editors in this WikiProject may be interested in the featured quality source review RFC that has been ongoing. It would change the featured article candidate process (FAC) so that source reviews would need to occur prior to any other reviews for FAC. Your comments are appreciated. --IznoRepeat (talk) 21:34, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Help translating a source

Could a native German speaker please look at the Walter, Dirk reference in Spanish solution? The title and a quote are from the Google automated translation tool; I'm sure a native speaker could do a better job. Thanks. -- RoySmith (talk) 22:44, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
