#Wikidata - କବି ପ୍ରସାଦ ମିଶ୍ର

In my ongoing project to document the deaths of notable people in 2014, a friend helped me with Mr କବି ପ୍ରସାଦ ମିଶ୍ର. He knows Odia, a language that Google translate cannot help me with.

It was obvious that when you only know someone as Mr କବି ପ୍ରସାଦ ମିଶ୍ର, nobody will find him if they do not know that this can be transliterated to Kabi Prasad Mishra. As this transliteration was added, we can now Google for this gentleman and find more information about him.

Subhashish asked my help in turn for a transliteration for Mr Герич Ігор Дионізович. This person is Ukranian and to be honest, I do not know how to transliterate his name into English.

Plenty of opportunities left in Wikidata :)
Thanks,
