Search across multiple languages/wikis
Open, Needs TriagePublicSpike

Description

Issue

In a recent KaiOS usability study, we saw users append <in language> to their search queries e.g bread recipe in Hindi

Request

Research if it is possible to detect language names in the query
Research if we can show results from several wikis in the search result

Note

If we can adequately detect language in the query, we could perhaps ask the user "Did you mean to search in Tamil? Here are results from Tamil Wikipedia".
