It seems the machine translation backend is not returning some links translated when it is inside the table, It could be a issue in Apertium or our markup reapplying code in cxserver. To be investigated.

I also saw some instances where our link adaptation tool fails to adapt a few links.

@Esanders, this particular bug is not about editing tables, but mostly about how we translate the content inside the table using machine translation backend and link adaptaion tool. I think there is another ticket about general table editing support, that can be link to T105447: [Epic] replace plain contenteditable with VisualEditor in ContentTranslation
