This is a feature proposal. We can provide thumbnail image and brief description of articles in article selector to pick source articles in a more convenient and unambiguous way. Now we show only list title texts.

We can also anticipate some information that may be useful for that selection. Some ideas:
- Whether the article is available on the target language.
- Impact (e.g., viewers for the article)
- Quality (e.g., is it a stub? a featured article?)
- Communicate article does not exist and show alternative ones.
Not all of them equally important, but worth considering when designing the feature.
