Measure the year-over-year change in published translations
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

We want to get an overview of how the content creation evolves over the years and the weight of the different types of translations. A similar measurement was proposed on a weekly basis (T226169) but this ticket is focused on the year-over-year growth.

For each month (30-day period), we want to know the increase in all kinds of translation kinds (articles and sections), as well as the weight of each of them. By looking at a graph, it should be possible to determine that during September this year there were 10% more translations compared to last year, of which 80% were new pages and 20% for new sections).

We want to obtain results for the following wikis:

  • All Wikipedias (aggregate of all languages)
  • Selected small wikis (aggregate of the 5 languages below)
  • Malayalam
  • Bengali
  • Tagalog
  • Javanese
  • Mongolian

@Pginer-WMF Is tracking the year-over-year change (as opposed to the raw number of weekly or monthly translations) still important, now that we've phrased our overall goal in terms of an absolute number of translations?

Good point. Thanks, Neil.
I think it is of a much lower priority. Having the weekly numbers (T226169) we should be able to scroll back in time and easily have a rough idea on the volume of translations produced in that period. So I'd remove the current ticket from the priority backlog. Once T226169 is completed, we can reevaluate the need for it (i.e., discard or move back to priority again).

These are now available in the key metrics dashboard in Superset! We will add section translation metrics later (T250378).
