As a Wikidata editor patroling some edits,
I want to spot the actual changes more easily
in order to assess them more efficiently.
Currently, Wikibase highlights the whole fields in diffs for items and properties. I’d like to have word-level diffs, just like how it works on non-entity pages, for any textual fields, including terms (labels, descriptions, aliases), sitelink targets and all textual properties’ values (strings, monolingual strings, Commons files etc.).
For example, do you see the difference in this diff? (Tip: in the fourth word, е was changed to є. I found it using NavPopups (which does word-level diff on the JSON, so it shows u0435 → u0454) and then looking very closely at it.)
