Communicate plans for Section Translation enablement with Bengali Wikipedia community
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Bengali Wikipedia editors participated in previous research about Section Translation with positive results, and we want to enable an initial version of the tool in their wiki. This will allow users to experience how the tool works in a realistic environment without the limitations of the test instance and provide early feedback.

We want to proceed only if there are no major blockers from the community. This ticket is for communicating with the Bengali Wikipedia community in order to share information about Section translation, what will be available in the first version and inviting editors to share their feedback.
