Integrating a structured Interlanguage database within wiktionary
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Currently each wiktionary language have its own loose structure, using templates and wiki syntax. It make harder automated data extraction, transformation and transfer. Not only does this hindrance the collaboration between each wiktionary instance community effort, it also make their respective work less useful in downstream usages where structured dumps under various formats would greatly help.

This task is a first step trial to integrate and manage this problem through phabricator. A dedicated project may be relevant, but prior to that, some feedback are welcome.

@Psychoslave: To me this is pretty much a duplicate of T38881: Wiktionary needs usable API (see its comments there). Do you agree?

The topic of an API sure fall under the scope of the problem as it is presented in this report. Now, as the comments of T38881 remarks, an API for wiktionary is both too hard for a GSOC and too narrow to resolve the real deep problem which is an homogeneous structure, or at least an homogeneous reviewable structuring process among all wiktionary versions.

So, this is a a duplicate if you rename and enlarge the topic of T38881. :)

How is GSoC relevant in this task (as it was not mentioned before)?
