Support <score> tags in Content Translation
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The article was translated into Hebrew. The first translated version had useless <nowiki> tags with URLs with links to PNG images on In fact, in the original article these are not images, but musical scores created using <score> tags, and stored as temporary files with random names on

We need to support the <score> tag. At the first stage we can probably just copy the content of the score to the translation without changes, because musical notation is universal :)

We need to write an adaptation module similar to existing modules - gallery or peom

Results of testing of <score> tag support

  • Tested on these language pairs: en>iw, en>zh, en>gu, en>es, en>ji, fr>ru
  • Tested both Lilypond and ABC notation.
  • Tested both block and inline <score> elements.
  • Tested all translation engines available for the language pair.

Could find only ONE instance in which a <score> element was not translated, and that was when testing en>zh and using the Youdao translation engine. I could successfully translate plain text with Youdao, but when I attempted a <score> element, I got the error message "machine translation failed," and the translation block was left empty.

In every other situation, translation of <score> worked perfectly. Even in the specific page and language pair mentioned above
( in en>iw), <score> elements translated without trouble, even
though the bulk of the normal text did not (because apparently the source article uses templates that aren't available in the
target language.)

Thanks, @Barbvd. Closing as Resolved.

Although support for musical notations, i.e. <score> when editing in ContentTranslation seems to be fine, and, the translation could be successfully done, some specific issues still present for translation of articles with <score> tags (thx to @KartikMistry to point it out). After re-testing, I decided to create a separate task since it seems that the problem with <score> tags differs from what is described in this task and is more general - T216859.
