For users that have set multiple languages, we may wish to enhance search results by surfacing matches from Wikidata.
User story [Multilingual users]
When searching articles...
...I want be shown all relevant search results for articles in all languages I understand
...so that I can quickly access the content (saving time spent on searching and navigating through articles).
A user with multiple languages set in their Wikipedia app enters a search term. If there are no matches for the app language they are searching in, a subsequent query is made via Wikidata to surface more relevant results in the other languages the user has set in their app.
- A user with EN, DA and FR set as their app languages opens search.
- Enter the search term "flødebolle". As there are no exact results in English, so instead Wikidata surfaces an equivalent EN result from the DA match.
- Potentially, 'better' matching articles in other languages are also shown.
