ContentTranslation adapts it:Template:Cita to en:Template:Quote, even though a different a template is linked
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This is based on a user report, and confirmed by myself at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Amire80/Giovan_Battista_Perasso .

When translating from Italian to English, {{cita}} is adapted to {{quote}}. This is definitely wrong because {{cita}} is linked to {{Harvard citation no brackets}}.

It's totally unclear to me how a different template is adapted. The English word "quote" happens to be the translation of the Italian word "cita", but as far as I know we don't have machine translation form Italian to English, so it must be something else. This probably happens because en:Template:Cita exists and redirects to en:Template:Quote, although I might be wrong.

Possibly related issues:

  • T125579 (an incorrectly adapted template, even though a correct link is available)
  • T98018 (the "Template" namespace is adapted, even though it's not needed. This happens in this issue, too, so maybe it's related.)

If this indeed happens because en:Template:Cita exists and redirects to en:Template:Quote, then it's probably a dupe of T125579.
