Encourage users to publish old inactive unpublished translations
Open, NormalPublic

Description

When users have not been working on a translation for a while, a notification can help them to (a) continue the work, or (b) decide to publish the current content (avoid this knowledge to be lost).

This is also useful as a warning for old drafts being automatically deleted (T183890), and preventing the issues of trying to continue a translation for which the original article has changed significatively.

Proposed solution

Send a notifications for translations that were started 3 months ago and have not been published by the user. If there are several translations in such situation, the notifications will be grouped into a bundle. These notifications are illustrated below:

  • Text copy: "Your started translating <page-name> some months ago. Consider publishing it before it gets automatically discarded after a year."
  • Main action (opening the notification): leads to the Translation editor for the translation.
  • Secondary action: “Your translations” leads to the Translations dashboard showing the in-progress view.

Bundled version

  • Text copy: "You started <number-of-translations> translations some months ago. Consider publishing them before they get automatically discarded after a year."
  • Opening the main notification leads to the Translation dashboard showing the in-progress view.
  • Opening the individual notifications leads to the Translation editor for each translation.

This was requested in this comment. When participating in campaigns, the chances of users trying to translate the same article increase, which makes blocking topics for translation to be a bigger problem.
