Improve section mapping by integrating the section alignment API
Open, MediumPublic


Section translation maps article sections across languages based on previous translations.
This is process is not always perfect and it may be improved by integrating additional criteria.

This ticket proposes to integrate the section alignment API (documentation) to improve the results of the mapping.

The work on this ticket includes the evaluation of the API and the definition of a strategy to combine the existing criteria (e.g., one acting as fallback of the other).

Event Timeline

Section alignment API only supports the following languages: fr, en, es, ja, ar, ru. Hence, it is not suitable for our target wikis.
