[V2 Multilingual Enhancement] Show more relevant cross-language wiki results to multilingual users
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

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).

Scenario

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.

  1. A user with EN, DA and FR set as their app languages opens search.
  2. 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.
  3. Potentially, 'better' matching articles in other languages are also shown.
