Improve translation related filter options on Special:RecentChanges
Open, MediumPublic


After our changes for T233493, the recent changes filter has the following options:

  • Translation namespace
  • Site messages
  • Not in translation namespaces
  • Not translation pages

These filter options use negation and are confusing.

After recent discussions with @Pginer-WMF, we've decided that the following options could be added to make the filtering easier to understand:

  • Translatable pages. Original content to be translated.
  • Translations. Edits to make a translation.
  • Translated pages. Pages compiling the translated contents.
  • No translated content. Excludes translated pages and edits for translations
  • Site messages

Event Timeline

I agree current filters are confusing, especially the following issue: if you write about Translations namespace, I think it is more clear to use the plural form (as soon as T325884 isn’t resolved) and a capitalized initial letter.

Change proposals do not have this issue.

It's not limited to Translations. For example, has dozen or so translation namespaces.
