API links to mediawiki.org should be in user's preferred language
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

If your language preference on mediawiki.org is not English, and you click a link in the generated API help such as "See the complete documentation" you see the English wiki page even if it has been translated into your language.

I think the preferred approach is to link to Special:MyLanguage/Page_title, which will show in a logged-in Wikimedia user's preferred language.
