Special:Translate: Make the target language visible in the translation UI
Closed, ResolvedPublic


As users translate their focus is on the translation box, so we can consider to provide an indicator f the target language there. We need to be careful since any distraction can affect their performance in a very repetitive step. Mentioning the target language as part of the placeholder text can provide a good balance between reassuring they contribute to the right language while not getting n the way as soon as the user starts typing the translation.
