MUL - Remove descriptions for `mul` language code from the user workflow on mobile termbox
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Currently, it appears as if editors can add mul descriptions in the termbox. But when they try, they receive an error message, that says mul is not allowed for descriptions. We need to make this more intuitive.


  • Another task does the same thing for desktop (the original task was split into viewing T329644 and editing T338302).
  • The reason is that we only allow the language code mul for Labels and Aliases and not for descriptions (T313027).
  • A WM message for "-" (disabled field) should already exists by now (see T329644).


  • Remove descriptions for mul language code from the users' termbox workflow
  • The n-dash symbol "–" (disabled field) needs to be translateable to be understood in all cultures (e.g. in Japanese).
