Description

Translations through Qualtrics will require:

Translations through the Movement Comms process will require English translation templates and will follow this process:

  • Prepare translation template w/ English text along with any already-translated content (from Community Insights or prior Readers Surveys) and space for any needed translations
  • Movement Comms translation request submission

Templates (in progress):

Event Timeline

Flagging discussion with @TAndic that we may want to omit Thai for the following reasons:

  1. Lack of confidence in Qualtrics translation for Thai in general (based on Community Insights experiences)
  2. Qualtrics does not allow us to alphabetize in translated languages (will automatically be alphabetized in English and it's not clear with a non-Roman script how we should alphabetize ourselves—Movement Comms translators can help us for languages covered by that process)
  3. Thai is a relatively low traffic Wikipedia (ranked 23)

This also implies that we may want to omit Swedish (lower-ranked than Thai by traffic) and also requiring Qualtrics translation. This means we'd only need to go through Qualtrics for Farsi / Persian.

Discussion note for @TAndic (and to document this decision) RE Chinese translations: 2019 Readers survey was translated to Traditional Chinese. 2022 Community Insights survey was translated to Simplified. Choices here are:

  1. Translate to ZH-S (since all readers of Traditional Chinese can read simplified)
  2. Translate to Traditional (would make things harder to understand for readers of Simplified Chinese: PRC, Singapore)
  3. Translate to both? (Not sure if we can leverage user settings: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_Wikipedia#Automatic_conversion_between_traditional_and_simplified_Chinese_characters) - but this seems technically more complicated.

Overall, it seems like the most straightforward route is to go with option 1, but since this is (like all language issues) highly and explicitly political, maybe we can insert a note about using simplified orthography to maximize accessibility?

Agreed on Thai and Swedish @YLiou_WMF.

If we go with ZH-S, we will also need to use Qualtrics for translations as (if I remember correctly) Movement Comms translation is only available in Traditional.

We can do both and localize, but need to use translatewiki for the zhwiki messaging. We'd just have a slightly different configuration for the zhwiki QuickSurvey and a few other steps (as far as I understand, translations via translatewiki need to be committed which happens on a schedule, while directly editing the interface allows us to make immediate changes). <-- UPDATE: Apologies, I'm incorrect here. This only works for logged in users who have their language preferences set.

With that, noting here we should have a check on which PT version translations we currently have when the translation review happens so it's consistent (we've usually selected PT-BR for editor surveys based on population size).

Translation quote received from Qualtrics for Simplified Chinese, Farsi, and Dutch

Qualtrics translator has recommended that we alphabetize the simplified Chinese translations of the language questions (Q12A/Q12B/Q13) in the survey script by Pinyin romanization.

As a result, we are requesting translation using the following format:

Original (Simplified Chinese translation) [Pinyin]
English (英语) [Yīngyǔ]

and will alphabetize the language choices for simplified Chinese survey takers by Pinyin romanization.

We have been informed by Manar Criner at Movement Comms that Bangla is no longer supported for translation through their process. Given that it is the lowest-traffic Wikipedia that we currently plan to survey, we have decided to omit it from this wave.

Hi @YLiou_WMF ! Checking on 2 things as I get into T346903 this week:

  1. Did we get a translation of the privacy policy link statement for QuickSurvey? I can't seem to find it in the translation links. Ie. this text https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Reader-demographics-2-survey-privacy-policy
  2. Do we have a confirmation for which languages are done with translation? Eg. Czech and Ukrainian seem to be incomplete in the links above

Edit: here are the languages I found to be incomplete (new translations not added in original doc; may be in a separate file?)

  • CS
  • ES
  • FR
  • HE
  • HU
  • PL
  • UK

Update:

  • Qualtrics translations are complete
  • Incomplete Movement Comms translations are noted above. Requests have been made to complete these translations.

Update for 10/24:

  • Vietnamese translation completed
  • Hungarian translator non-responsive, but Hungarian is a lower-traffic project so we will omit Hungarian from the full sample.
