Abstract: We determined the mass-loss rates and luminosities of WN2 - WN5 stars in the LMC and SMC by using the empirically scaled formulae. The comparison of these mass-loss rates and luminosities with the respective data for the Galactic WN stars allows to estimate that mass-loss rates of WNE stars depend on Z in the power of about 1.5 − 2.
