# Description

Since approximately this week, ContentTranslation v2 sometimes inserts </img> in the translation instead of the mathematical formulas, as shown in the following image:

Using en:Grüneisen_parameter to translate into Serbian, in production:

• With Google Translate as default option, translate some math formula. "</img>" is displayed as in the description.
• Change to "Copy original content" and section gets empty
• Make "Copy original content" the default option
• Translate some other math formula. Result: Formula looks fine

Here we observe some different behavior depending on MT option chosen and even the order in which options are changed. Could be useful for debugging.

I've just managed to reproduce it.

I translated https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Amire80/math to https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Amire80/math . In the CX2 interface, I saw </img>, and the output came out totally garbled.

A bit more details:

The source math was:

$\ddot{a}+\bar{a}$

The output was:

<math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML"><mrow class="MJX-TeXAtom-ORD"><mstyle displaystyle="true" scriptlevel="0"><mrow class="MJX-TeXAtom-ORD"><mrow class="MJX-TeXAtom-ORD"><mover><mi> </mi><mo> $\ddot{a}+\bar{a}$ </mo></mover></mrow></mrow><mo> $\ddot{a}+\bar{a}$ </mo><mrow class="MJX-TeXAtom-ORD"><mrow class="MJX-TeXAtom-ORD"><mover><mi> </mi><mo stretchy="false"> $\ddot{a}+\bar{a}$ </mo></mover></mrow></mrow></mstyle></mrow> [/itex]$\ddot{a}+\bar{a}$  $\ddot{a}+\bar{a}$ </img> <span></span>

You can see that $\ddot{a}+\bar{a}$ appears five times in the output סֿ_Ô

not sure this is related to this ticket, but I never saw a math formula being translated like this.
it is like this in production as well.
waiting for @santhosh feedback to see if it is related or not.

update: this might not be related since the example on my last screenshot is a template and not a math formula

@Pginer-WMF is this a different issue?
Is there a ticket already for this?

Please include language pair, title and MT engine information along with screen shots.
In this case I assume es->ca translation, Title: Cálculo tensorial , MT service: Apertium. Correct me if I am wrong.

You are right. This is not math formula, but https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plantilla:Ecuaci%C3%B3n which is incorrectly connected to https://ca.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plantilla:Equaci%C3%B3/%C3%BAs - the documentation page for a template in catalan wikipedia. I tried a quick fixing it in wikidata(https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q14339252), but seems bit complex since catalan template has its own wikidata item https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q25740790. So it is better a catalan community member take look into this. @Pginer-WMF please note.

This one is definitely a bug. Happening with Apertium. Checking.

@santhosh are you going to be fixing this issue on this task or a different one?

This ticket is sufficient.

QA NOTES (dev can ignore):
I found a weird behaviour in prod with https://es.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Especial:Traducci%C3%B3n_de_contenidos&campaign=contributions-page&page=Gr%C3%BCneisen+parameter&from=en&to=es&targettitle=Gr%C3%BCneisen+parameter

MT stops translating after a math formula.
Check this case once this task is in cx2-testing.

MT stops translating "randomly".
Steps:

1. start translating the article from the description
2. using google has the MT engine, start translating one by one from the top of the article
3. as seen in the screenshot, the third section does not get translated. this happens again if you continue translating.

an error appears on the console although I'm not sure it is related

mw.cx.TranslationTracker.prototype.isExcludedFromValidation = function(sectionModel) {
var excludedTypes = ['cxBlockImage', 'mwBlockImage', 'cxTransclusionBlock', 'mwTransclusionBlock', 'mwReferencesList', 'mwMath', 'mwTable', 'list', 'mwHeading']
, childType = sectionModel.getChildNodeName();
}
