On the mobile editor of Section Translation, the suggested translaiton card remains loading indefinitely when the translation service fails. This has been noticed for Meitei/Manipuri which is one of the languages for which Google Translate announced its support (T308248) but it is not working yet (T314557). However, this can be an opportunity to make the integration more reliable and avoid similar issues when the translation services fail for different reasons (e.g., server down, network glitch, etc.).
Steps to replicate the issue (include links if applicable):
- From a mobile device click the Section translation test instance
- Choose the Manipuri language and select one of the suggested articles to start translation.
After choosing an article to start translating, the interface begins to load endlessly as shown in the screenshot below.
What should have happened instead?:
This ticket proposes to:
- Communicate the issue explicitly.
- Provide relevant actions as follow-ups for the user to either try again or select a different option (MT services, or start from the source/scratch)
