testing status: QA PASS

Ellipsis button now works as expected as it navigates user to the CX tool to initiate a new translation

unable to attached the video as Phabricator won't attach it.

When testing it, I noticed that the user is directed to Content Translation but the page to translate is not pre-selected. I created a follow-up ticket for that aspect: T311820: Pre-select page to translate from missing languages in language selector (mobile and desktop) when target language is not defined

@Pginer-WMF I had the same question when looking at this. I did think when you click the "Ellipsis" does it take you to the pre-selected lang and article to translate to. But when you click the two (2) mentioned Language as highlighted in the attachment it does take you to the pre-selected article and from and to language to be converted to. That part was a tad bit confusing but thanks for clarifying that part. I would still argue it should be part of this ticket but you have created another ticket.
