CX2: User research study for Content Translation version 2
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We want to conduct a user research study to learn more about how Content translation version 2 supports the needs of our users (especially for new editors). The study will answer the following research questions:

  • Does CX2 provide a fluent experience for translating Wikipedia articles? Identify issues that users encounter that make waste their efforts, and could be better supported.
  • Does CX2 provide a clear way to participate for newcomers? Identify the points of confusion for newcomers that prevent them to confidently create a good-quality translation.
