Feature Request: Localize the word marks in the app
Open, MediumPublic

Description

Feature request

When using the Share-a-Fact feature, it would be nice if the word mark was the same as that of the source. We Catalan speakers regularly hold campaigns to promote the use of Viquipèdia (the localized name for Wikipedia), but when we create promotional material using this feature we are stuck with the incorrect name.

General info. about wordmarks

As the desktop improvements get deployed to more wikis, the wordmarks will get added to wiki commons. Currently, most wikis have the translated wordmark on their wiki pages but they are saved as a png that includes the globe and the Wikipedia tagline, but they are being converted to separated SVG files with the desktop improvements project.

  • This is the T142426 parent task to create wordmarks for all Wikipedia languages
  • This is a task with the current set of wikis to which the desktop improvements will be deployed to T290091 (and for which the wordmark will get converted into an SVG)
Wordmark specs
  • Height: The wordmarks should match in height (the height includes ascenders and descenders)
  • Fallback logic: If the wordmark is not available the fallback wordmark should be the en-wordmark (currently shown for all languages in the app)
