Watsan or WASH for the French Wikipedia article?

This post is in English and in French and it is related to the Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Dear all, // Bonjour,

Working on the French content of Wikipedia for SuSanA Edit-a-thon (19th-21th March 2017), we want to redirect the French Watsan page directly to the French WASH page . What do you think about it ? Is it correct to use WASH in French as English speakers use it or WatSan is more commonly used by French speakers nowadays?
Thank you for you help !

To get more information about SuSanA French Wikipedia Edit-a-thon see this thread .

En travaillant sur le contenu français de Wikipédia pour le marathon d'édition de SuSanA (ce weekend 19-20-21 mars 2017 !) je voulais connaître votre avis sur le fait de rediriger la page française de Watsan directement sur la page française WASH (ou inversement?!) ? Lequel des deux termes est actuellement le plus utilisé par les francophones ?
Merci d'avance!

L'équipe SuSanA vous attend nombreux!

Best regards,
Cordialement
Bonne journée

Re: Who invented the term "WASH" for water, sanitation, hygiene? - And: Watsan or WASH for the French Wikipedia article?

Le terme le plus fréquemment employé ces derniers temps dans la litérature est EAH = pour Eau, Assainissement et Hygiène.
Sur le terrain c'est différent, par le passé on employait toujours Watsan mais il me semble que maitenant c'est de plus en plus WASH.
Bien à vous,

Hi Cécile,

Thank you for the clarifications about WASH/Watsan/EAH.
I will merge both WASH and Watsan pages into one and speak about EAH.

Kind regards,
July

Bonjour,

Suite aux questions concernant l'emploi de WASH ou Watsan dans le jargon français, les modifications suivantes ont été apportées.
L'article Watsan a été renommé en "Eau, Assainissement et Hygiène" et les pages WASH et EAH sont en copie au début de l'article.
Voici le lien fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eau,_assainissement_et_hygi%C3%A8ne

N'hésitez pas à aller le modifier.

Bonne journée,
July



Hello everyone,

Regarding the use of Watsan or WASH or EAH few modifications have been made.
The Watsan article has been renamed into Eau, Assainissement et Hygiène, and WASH and EAH page links are in the top of the page.

Here is the page link fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eau,_assainissement_et_hygi%C3%A8ne

Please feel free to contribute yourself,

Regards
