  1. Click to try to translate them - the Console error will be displayed:
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'length' of null

    at later (load.php?debug=false&lang=en&modules=ext.visualEditor.core|oojs-ui-core&skin=vector&version=0cs7duy:806)

Note: the same translation in cx1 will not display those stub templates.
