Hi, I'm ЗAНИA or Xania. I've been here at Wikibooks since 2005 and presently I'm an administrator here so happy to help with whatever problems you may have.

My specialties are linguistics (Romance, Slavic and Celtic languages and Basque), history, European geography, culture and politics.

I help out here with removing vandalism and spam, checking books for grammar or spelling mistakes, categorizing books, improving Cookbook pages by adding links and metric units and working on several books which I created or have contributed to:

I am an English language professional with experience teaching the language to native speakers and non-native speakers as well as developing materials for use by other teachers. I speak Italian and Polish to a reasonable degree. I also have a more limited knowledge of French, Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, Basque, Slovene, Serbian / Croatian, Manx Gaelic, Georgian and Estonian.

My Basic 'Policies' on Wikibooks

I spend a lot of time fighting vandalism on Wikibooks. I am always willing to give people the benefit of the doubt but I have no tolerance for racism, homophobia or edits on a youth-targeted page which would be considered inappropriate.

Useful Links

These are mainly a shortcut for pages that I commonly visit but which take forever to find because of the poor search feature on Wikibooks.
