But what is a "source text"!?

Errors?[edit]

What does correcting errors mean? Certainly it doesn't apply to factual errors by the original author. What kind of errors does it apply to? Superm401-Talk 17:36, 22 July 2005 (UTC)

The errors we're talking about refer to copyedit errors (typos that occured from scanning in the text and submitting it--not those written in the text, and others such as that). No, you're right, we aren't talking about factual errors at all. Correcting those would obviously change the source text itself, so we leave those along. —Zhaladshar (Talk) 18:54, 22 July 2005 (UTC)

translator[edit]

hi guys! i am new here and would like to help translating pages ...how do i go about it?

Hi! It's quite simple, really. Find pages which interest you, and translate them into the language you want. As long as you agree to release these pages under the GFDL or into the public domain, they are welcome here at Wikisource. Good luck! —Zhaladshar (Talk) 17:06, 11 August 2005 (UTC)
