Use automatic translation to complement short articles
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Multilingual users reaching a short article (e.g., a stub) often check the content in another wikipedia they understand. With the availability of automatic translation services provided by ContentTranslation, it is possible to show translated richer content about the current topic available in other languages.

In this way, users (multilingual or not) can get additional information about the topic that can be also used to expand the local article.

These ideas are illustrated with some mockups bellow:
