When an article is created in the main namespace using Section Translation it should be connected to the other language versions for such topic in Wikidata. In this way, users can find that the new article exist by navigating through the language links.
Looking at recent translations with Section Translation in Hausa Wikipedia, I found two interesting instances that we may want to support better:
- The Acacia koa article in Hausa was created as a translation of this English article (available in 15 languages). However, the Hausa article is not listed in Wikidata. This makes the list of interlanguage links for the Hausa article to be empty, and "Hausa" not appearing in the language selector for the English version for people to discover it.
- The Kwalejin Ilimi ta Jihar Neja article was created in Hausa using Section Translation from the English version which was not available in any other language and it seems that it had no item associated with it either in Wikidata. The final result is two disconnected articles.
In the same way that Content Translation connects new articles (when published in the main namespace) trough Wikidata (T87410), we want to do the same when the articles are created with Section Translation.
