This task is used for planning and organizing only. To comment on the project or discuss it, please use one of the linked tasks instead.

Description of the main objective

Scope of the Initiative:

  • Editor-defined intentional language fallbacks for Labels and Aliases (using the mul language code).
  • Enhanced visibility of language fallbacks for Labels and Aliases in the editing UI.
  • Full language fallback support on mobile. (now separate initiative)

Importance:

  • Will reduce redundant Wikidata Labels and Aliases, benefiting infrastructure and the Wikidata community (see community task T285156).
  • Current reliance on English as the sole generic fallback was not intentional or equitable.
  • Mobile users get proper language fallbacks for the first time. (now separate initiative)
