Summary page for key Wikibase terms ( [[Special:WikibaseTerminology]] )
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Rather than having to search through Wikidata:Glossary , interface messages, help pages, Special:SpecialPages, Special:AllMessages, it would be helpful to have a special page (e.g. Special:WikibaseTerminology) that displays translations of key terms on a single page: English on one side, current interface language on the other. This makes it easier for those using it in several languages.

Terms in the Wikidata:Glossary could be a good start: item, property, entity, label, description, title, qualifier, claim, statement, etc.

Actual text would be loaded from available interface messages.

The list of system message to be read could be included in the configuration.

Let's please make the glossary usable and useful instead.

I think the target audience isn't the same. The glossary is meant to describe the various terms, this would just list the canonical translation.
