When a page is delivered through an external translation service, we still want to provide a way for users to contribute a local version of the article. For cases where users want to create a new local page, they can benefit from using ContentTranslation.
Currently, when the local page does not exist, External Guidance users going through the contribution path are shown a "Create a new page" view (T212325), where they can edit the page title before it is corrected. This ticket proposes to extend such view (only on desktop) to incorporate one more choice about how to start with the following options:
- "Start from a translation" will start a new translation using Content Translation. This will be the default option when the choices are available.
- "Start from scratch" will lead the user to Visual editor to start the new page, as currently happens.
Content translation can provide support for making a user-supervised translation, but it is currently only available on desktop and for the creation of new pages.
How to start
- Start from a translation. Automatic translation will be used as a starting point. You need a good command of both <source-language> and <target-language> to review and improve the initial translation.
- Start from scratch. Start with a blank page to create the article.
Note that the "How to start" section should only be visible on desktop and for new page creations. Thus, it should be hidden for both (a) the "Create a new page" view on mobile, and (a) the "Create a new page" view when the user types a page name that already exists, as illustrated below:
