Edit request[edit]

{{edit request}} Please add "volapükist" (w:en:Volapükist) and "bohemist". Thanks, --Petrus Adamus (talk) 20:51, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

If you want the page to be translated, this is not the right place to ask. The translation can be added to the other template. It is not protected. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 20:08, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
I pleased only adding to the list in {{Occupation/en}}. --Petrus Adamus (talk) 07:49, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment What is a "bohemist" ?--Zolo (talk) 07:57, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
Un bohemiste est un spécialiste des langues et de la civilisation tchèque. --Petrus Adamus (talk) 21:01, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
Ok thanks. I can see the French word on the internet but not the English one.--Zolo (talk) 06:11, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Well, of course you can translate it to English in another way, I do not how. --Petrus Adamus (talk) 07:15, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Since there does not seem to be any English word, I think the most cautious solution would be something like "Czech studies specialist" .
I am not sure, that a Frenchman (although maybe mastering English) will understood, that it should be his bohemiste. Anyway, it is possible to find the word Bohemist(ics) on webpages in English as well, see for instance the following ones: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6]. --Petrus Adamus (talk) 15:22, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
I don't think we shold create new words here I can add Czech studies specialist=Bohémiste in occupation/fr.--Zolo (talk) 17:31, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Yes, you are right, but the examples above should have demonstrated the present existence of the word in English. Anyway, there are many words of the same group needed, such as Polonist, Germanist, Hispanist, Hellenist etc. Besides, the second requested, Volapükist, is similar to Esperantist, both normally used. --Petrus Adamus (talk) 17:45, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Bohemstics seems to be more commons than Bohemist. Though it may sound natural to go from to one to the other I think we should wait that it has become more widely used. I have no objection to Polonist or Volapükist if they are commonly used.
The problem is that change a non-English version is easy, but as English is used as the source language, changing an item in that requires an edit in all localisation subpages. But what can I do, being not an administrator, please add there at least something. --Petrus Adamus (talk) 18:22, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

✓ Done I added "Volapükist", lets create "Bohemist" or "Bohemstics" article in english wikipedia and it it survives then lets revisit the issue. --Jarekt (talk) 19:16, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Well, pray create an item of that meaning in a translation at your pleasure, so that we could translate it as bohemista to Czech. --Petrus Adamus (talk) 19:49, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Could anyone add "glass engraver"? Thanks, Vincent Steenberg (talk) 14:41, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

Done, but would "glass artist" do ? The template is already very long, so it becomes rather hard to keep translation up to date.--Zolo (talk) 10:29, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

Fixes and comments[edit]


  1. "copper engraver" and "copperplate engraver" - is these same occupation? If so, please merge.
  2. "illuminator" and "manuscript illuminator" / "limner" - is these same occupation? If so, please merge.
  3. "neurobiologist" is alternate for "neuroscientist" (scientist), not for "neurologist" (physician); please fix it and check for using.
    Are fixed. --Kaganer (talk) 15:02, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
  4. now added two different occupations - "porcelain artist" and "porcelain painter". This these same, thing "potter|ceramic artist|ceramist|ceramic designer|porcelain designer"? If not, please comment and clarify. Where painter, where sculptor, where artisan...
  5. "surveyor" is ambiguation term. I guess that means an expert on the topography, but this also expert of Insurance Company.

--Kaganer (talk) 15:08, 11 October 2012 (UTC)


please add

Pictogram voting question.svg Question That's not really an occupation. Do we add political interest to this list? --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 22:36, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm primarily editing categories of people from Slovenia. There are so many cases of a person described as a 'communist' in the Slovene Wikipedia [8] that I presumed it would be worthy to add the term to the list. There are other categories too that are not an occupation, e.g. "national hero".[9] Even if these are not an occupation sensu stricto, they're concise descriptions of what the person is notable for, so they can stand on their own in the introduction line. --Eleassar (t/p) 05:57, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
