Enable Content and Section translation on wikipedias with new MT support from Google for languages once it is working
Open, MediumPublic

Description

A set of languages without previous machine translation support got support from Google Translate (T308248) and, for many of those, Content and Section translation is not available by default. Support has been completed for an initial set (T313296), but for a few languages Google translate was not working and we prefer to wait until it is actually working. The languages not working are: Iloko (ilo), Bambara (bm), and Goan Konkani (gom).

This ticket proposes to enable Content and Section Translation and improve template support for the languages where those tools are not available by default (all the above except Illoko where the tools are already available):

  • Bambara (bm)
  • Goan Konkani (gom) (Google code: kon gom)

Steps:

Event Timeline

Goan Konkani (gom) (Google code: kon)

Based on the Google Translate website, they seem to use "gom" as the ISO code when "Konkani" is selected from the menu. Example:
https://translate.google.com/?hl=en&sl=en&tl=gom&text=hello&op=translate

I'll update the description to reflect this.

The machine translation is working for these languages now. We can continue with the enablement process @KartikMistry and @UOzurumba
