Talofa Joseph. I am at the beginning stage of understanding the use of Wikipedia. I am fluent in both Samoan and English. I was very pleased to find the Gagana Samoa page. I have also added in 'comments' under Translating from Samoan to English a paragraph in each language to begin this discussion. Could you make this into an article, fa'amolemole.
I've done this one but I really would like to focus on other issues and other subjects that would enhance the language of the Samoan community around the world.
- Talofa, Jose77. You seem to be doing good work here. It has come quite a distance since I created the 2004 article, which I (sadly) see has been deleted. Maybe you can look at how it was before it was vandalised. A modern encyclopedia can hardly do without a page for such a recent year.
Kind regards from Wellington - Robin Patterson 00:34, 9 Ianuari 2007 (UTC)
Thank you - fa'afetai Jose77. I am pleased we have at least agreed to be the 'guides' or the administrators at this point. I have a lot to add in a number of areas, but I'll just do what I can as i have time. Great to build this wiki. I have also noted that a Maori brother / sister ? of New Zealand is also interested. Im glad about this.
HI Jose77. How are you? I've done a few more articles and building on others. Your assistance (in tidying up the Wiki Samoa is greatly appreciated. Missed your comments in the lst day or two.
The title Tutuila is spelt incorrectly . Can you change it to what it is here please?
The title Manu'a is spelt like this Jose77, not as it is in the article section. Could you change it please. I'll learn how to do these edits as soon as i get a chance.
Please change the title of the translation article to Fa'aliliuga, and not fa'amolemole. It was my fault for not making it clear to you.
It is a real pleasure to be working in this collaborative way with you. I am enjoying the opportunity to be part of this. Glad to have someone like you to work with. God bless.I'll continue to read and learn also all about the 'culture' of wikipedia as I journey along. --Fatugalelei 21.33 12 January, 2007 (UTC)
Glad to be sysop. Meaning of this term please Jose?

Hi Jose its been a long while since I last came on to our site. I completely forgot my password (I was Fatugalelei) so Ive changed my name to Pesemai in case you are wondering.
Forgot Password[edit source]
Hi Jose, I have entered under a new name as you have suggested -fatufatu- and would like you to know that. I shall try to be a little more regular as I have a little time.(Fatugalelei)Fatufatu 19:29, 8 Iuni 2007 (UTC)
Its good to be back and I see you have been working steadily . In Samoan, that deserves a big " mālō " (mar -law ....well done, congratulations etc).
Dear Jose77: Please believe me when I say I forgot my new pin number!! So sorry about this but I hope you will understand -it's me Fatugalelei now becoming FatugafiafiaFatugafiafia 09:23, 12 Iuni 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your welcome. I've seen your nick and I've got a question. Do you speak Spanish? --Ekuñe 18:49, 9 Setema 2007 (UTC)
- Yes, but only on a basic level. --Jose77 22:46, 9 Setema 2007 (UTC)
Talofa Jose77! How are you my friend. I have been absolutely busy with life / work etc, and have not had time to come back and visit. Im Fatugafiafia (my 3rd identity), but I can't log in. Can you suggest what I should do? Ive forgotten how to relog.
Talofa Jose, so sorry but Ive been absolutely busy for the last (many) months. Will try to do some more soon on this site.`Fatuoleola 08:26, 5 Tesema 2007 (UTC)
Fijian MediaWiki messages imported into Betawiki[edit source]
Hi Jose77. I see that you have contributed to the messages in the namespace MediaWiki. Thank you for that. As Fijian did not yet have any generic messages in MediaWiki (only on this wiki), we imported the messages from Special:Allmessages into betawiki:. Betawiki also supports the translation of messages for 116 extensions, with about 1,600 messages. I would like to invite you to join the Betawiki community and help improve MediaWiki localisation for the languages you are able to contribute to.
If you have any further questions, please let me know on my talk page on Betawiki. We will try and assist you as much as possible. You can also find us on the Freenode IRC network in the channel #mediawiki-i18n where we would be happy to help you get started.
- Okay, I will join when I have time. (Unfortunately I will be more busy next year, so I will probably be less active on Wikipedia than before.)--Jose77 06:47, 20 Tesema 2007 (UTC)
Talofa Jose! I've been absolutely busy so sorry I've not been active. Would like to focus a bit more in the next few months. I want to build up Samoan texts for school students to use in classroom work, or just to learn Samoan. How are you?Fatuoleola 08:35, 19 Tesema 2007 (UTC)
NO worries. Found an older section named after same.22.214.171.124 09:03, 25 Tesema 2007 (UTC)
Perception Page?[edit source]
I noticed that you had tagged the Perception page for deletion. It should be deleted. Good job.
Hi! I'm a Hungarian Wikipedia editor, my name is Norbert Kiss. I'm very proud of my village and I would like to read about it in a lot of langauges. I translated already it into 10 languages (now it is in 42 languages), but I can't speak Samoan. Could you help me? My village's English page is this: Ecser. Could you translate the page of Ecser into Samoan? Then just link the side into the English version and I will see it, or you could write me, when it is ready. My Hungarian Wikipedia side is: My profile.
Thank you! Norbert
Talofa uce[edit source]
wsup uce, im still trying to get a hang of this. did you want me to translate that into samoan?
"Receiving the Holy Spirit, evidenced by speaking in tongues, is the guarantee of our inheritance of the Kingdom of Heaven".
"o le Papatisoga i le Agaga Paia, e afua mai ona tautalatala lea i gagana ese'ese, o le fa'amaufa'ailoga foi lea o le tatou fa'amoemoe i le malo o i le lagi"
"Water baptism is the sacrament for the remission of sins and for regeneration. The baptism takes place in natural living water, such as the river, sea, or spring. The Baptist, whom already had received baptism of water and the Holy Spirit, conducts the baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. And the person receiving the baptism should be completely immersed in water with head bowed and face downward".
"o le Papatisoga i le Vai, o se sauniga i le fa'amamaina o a tatou agasala, ma le toe fa'aolaola po'o le fa'afouina o le olaga. O se sauniga e faia i le Vai, pei la o le Vaitafe, po'o le sami foi. O Lē papatiso foi, ua tatau ona papatisoina foi o ia i le Agaga Paia ma le Vai, ma na te Papatisoina tagata i le Suafa o le Ali'i o Iesu Keriso. O le tagata foi o lo'o sauni atu ina ia papatisoina, e tatau ona punou lelei lava i totonu o le vai.
"The sacrament of feet washing enables one to have a part with the Lord Jesus. It also serves as a constant reminder that one should have love, holiness, humility, forgiveness and service. Every person who has received water baptism should have their feet washed in the name of Jesus Christ. Mutual feet washing can be practiced whenever is appropriate".
"O le sauniga o le mulumuluina o vae, na te fausiaina se mafutaga lotogatasi ma le Ali'i o Iesu. O se fa'amanatuga foi lea ina ia aua ne'i galo e le tagata, e tatau ona fa'avaeina i le Alofa, le Amiotonu a le Atua, le Loto Maulalo, le Fa'amagaloga ma le Loto Auauna i le tasi ma le tasi. O i latou uma ua Papatisoina i le vai, ua iai se aia tatau ona mulumuluina o latou vae i le Suafa o Iesu Keriso. Ma o se sauniga foi lea e mafai ona faia i so'o se mea ua lagona iai le tagata ona faia.

Talofa lava Jose,
Thank you for the acknowledgement. I happen to come by by chance. I am a professional interpreter/translator for the Samoan language here in the Bay Area and the whole state of Ca. and also a Bible teacher.
Time allowing I could help where I can. My html skills are limited and therefore am not able to do much but if you want me to help I'll be more than willing.
Greetings friend, I need your help to improve samoa wikipedia, I would like you to help me make templates and infobox to improve the articles, especially those of geography (countries, cities), if you know how to create templates, I would be grateful that we could include several templates as other wikis, Together we can make a better web wikipedia
