ContentTranslation should not allow user to translate page in the same wiki as the target
Open, LowPublicBUG REPORT

Description

See https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:%E6%97%A5%E5%BF%97/Hskphs:
The original page is in Chinese. A translation to English is published in the Chinese Wikipedia. This should be not possible (The source and target wiki is the same, and the translation is published to the wrong wiki).

Thanks for reporting. The translation dashboard of Content Translation is in the process of being rearchitected. We'll review this behaviour to verify that works as intended in the new version (currently used on mobile). So if similar issues persist in the future (or happen already on mobile) feel free to reopen.
Thanks!

This has happened to me recently a couple of times when trying to translate articles from ptwiki or enwiki to eswiki.

First case, on Oct. 8 2023, I translated with the tool this article into Spanish. When clicking on Publish, the article translated into Spanish was posted in ptwiki. This led to the immediate deletion of the article and a warning from a ptwiki admin with the possibility of being blocked in pt.wp "in case I repeat the same mistake".

Today, I was trying to translate this article from en.wp into Spanish but, by the message at the top of the page (see image attached), it seems that the tool intends to publish the translated article in the source language. If I tried to post it in my sandbox, you can see that the is the enwiki sandbox (User:Zapipedia/...) and not the eswiki's (that should be Usuaria:Zapipedia/...).

This query now returns 30 results.

This is still happening. I was trying to publish a translation from pt to eswiki that finally got published in ptwiki (the source language). This can have me banned in this wiki, since is not the first time that happened.
