Request for ULS language settings in VE page settings-languages

Request for ULS language settings link in VE page settings-languages .When clicked should open up ULS dialogue box for language settings

Attached:

So far this report does not explain which problem you would like to solve by this.

Im not sure this is desirable or not; adding people and tracking to help sort that out. Is runa@wikimedia.org on bugzilla yet?

ULS is a flexible tool for selecting a language out of a long list of possible languages. It may or may not be relevant for this request.

The ULS may be used in the future for switching to Wikipedia in another language; I refer to the thing that is done today with the interlanguage links.

Setting a different content language for a whole page is a useful feature, and the ULS can be used for selecting the language there, but first the MediaWiki core must support it; see Bug 9360. It is also mentioned in the i18n specification for VE: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/VisualEditor/Internationalization_requirements .

To summarize: Mahitgar, can you please write *what* are you asking to do? ULS may or may not be the a good *way* to do it, but first the actual feature must be defined. I tried to read the the thread, and I didn't quite understand the requirement.

Mahitgar: Could you please answer comment 5?

What Mr. Amir discussing higher end facilities are welcome.

As far as this bug is concrned simply this bug intends/requests for basic feature requirement provide ULS input method selection at VE tool bar. sans any icons . As of now ULS icons have not been understood by 60% of targeted new user group.VE tool bar is right in front of eyes I can select every thing including intended language input from VE tool bar itself before I start editing, this I am looking for . Am I asking for some thing too much and too defficult ?

Closing as invalid for now. I think what is implicit here, is present explicitly in other, unreferenced issues.
