Cx-tools-mt-not-available should include both source and target languages
Closed, InvalidPublic


Cx-tools-mt-not-available now says "Not available for LANGUAGE", where LANGUAGE is the target language. What this actually means is that MT is not available for this particular pair that is being shown.

It makes sense to me to include the source language as well, e.g.: "Machine translation from Russian to Georgian is not available". It's longer, but it's a thing that users keep wondering about: It's a frequent question at workshops, and it's also often reported as "Content Translation doesn't work in my Wikipedia" (when actually it does work in all languages, but MT for this pair doesn't).

The messsage in this card is clear and I dont think adding the source language add any more clarification. The user already chose it, user knows it,

When "Content Translation doesn't work in my Wikipedia" what they means is "Machine translation is not available." It is one of the misconception about CX that it provides machine translation for every language.
