Avoid long wait when comparing the section contents
Open, MediumPublic

Description

The step to compare the source section contents with the target article contents often results in long waiting periods.

The UI seems to be blocked both pieces of content are fully loaded. This ticket proposes to:

  • Showing the source section contents as soon as it loads
  • Keeping the button to translate active

This would give time for the target article to load in the background, and reduce the perceived waiting time. Further refinement by pre-loading or loading enough contents to fill the viewport can be considered too.
