ContentTranslation drops all references in first two paragraphs; one page link ends up incorrectly
Open, NormalPublic

Description

I loaded Atazanavir on Spanish Wikipedia into CTX and added the first three paragraphs. You will notice all the references are in place.

I made no other changes as I was testing this tool as some of my volunteers were having issues. Than when I hit publish I get the following with the references missing from the first two paragraphs. Also the Wikipedia page " HIV/AIDS" ends up as " #sida/de VIH "

Content translation editing surface has been fragile when dealing with some complex elements such as references at times. We are currently working on version 2 which uses a more solid editing surface provided by VisualEditor. The new version will make dealing with references as reliable as Visual Editor.

Also the Wikipedia page " HIV/AIDS" ends up as " #sida/de VIH "

This other issue may be caused by the automatic translation service. In this case, Apertium may be providing a sub-optimal translation. In addition, since Apertium only works with plain text, Content Translaiton has to recreate the links and references in the right place, resulting on the link being applied on the wrong place in some cases. This is something we cannot do much about since it depends on external translation services.
