SectionTranslation inserts translated lead section with __LEAD_SECTION__ title at the end of an article that already has a lead section
Open, MediumPublicBUG REPORT


Steps to replicate the issue (include links if applicable):

What happens?:

  • lead section of translated page is inserted at the end of the article
  • dummy value __LEAD_SECTION__ is used as section header

What should have happened instead?:

  • As the article already has a lead section, translation of the english lead section and inserting it to the german article should not have been possible at all.

Thanks for reporting, @hgzh.
We need to investigate under which circumstances this can happen.

The translation of the lead section should be possible in the future (T345845) but providing adequate guidance and avoiding the unexpected __LEAD_SECTION__ placeholder.
