Content translation provides users with suggestions of articles to translate. Based on user feedback, it would be useful to provide some general control about the knowledge area these suggestions are about (T113257).
Currently, the suggestion system provides either general suggestions or suggestions based on a given "seed article" used as an example to get similar suggestions.
As an initial step, this ticket tries to explore possible answers the following questions:
- How to represent the wide knowledge areas(e.g., science, philosophy...)? (e.g., vital article structure, categories, ORES topic model, Wikidata, etc.)
- How to use the current recommendation system or expand it to get suggestions on a selected area? (e.g., pick a random article from category and use as seed)
This ticket is focused on the technical exploration.
The mockups below are just illustrations of how this could be supported in Content translation:
|Structured set of categories for user to pick||Search for specific categories (with a predefined initial set)|
