ContentTranslation sometimes inserts a file with the localized "File:" namespace from the source language into the target language
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

I translated Eran Zur from Hebrew to English. The source article used the ICast template, which has an image in it. The template is not available in the English Wikipedia, so it was converted to wiki syntax. The image was inserted with the Hebrew namespace name, "קובץ", instead of the English "File", and this resulted in broken rendering in the first version of the article (search for "iCast").

The same also happened with the template סרטונים (pronounced sirtonim), in the next to last item in the list in the end of the article (search for "mako.co.il").

@Amire80 can you confirm whether this still happens with the new version of Content translation?

With the new version the template is not added as wikitext, making the issue no longer to happen. If there are other cases where the issue is present, feel free to reopen and provide the details
