StructuredDiscussions (Flow): Language conversion support for all Wikipedias that use multiple writing systems
Open, LowPublic

Description

Add support for variant conversions for the Wikipedias with multiple writing systems where Flow is deployed (or planned to be).


This problem has been raised in the https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topic:Senurif8p3m82m60

See also https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Automatic_conversion_between_simplified_and_traditional_Chinese


In Chinese language wikis like zh.wikipedia.org , the content (including title(s), message(s) and reply/replies) cannot be converted even when selected the display variant.

Steps to Reproduce:

Examples:

  1. The word "问题" is in zh-hans, when changing the display variant into zh-hant variants ( zh-hant , zh-tw , zh-hk , zh-mo ), the text should be "問題", but it didn't convert "问题" into "問題".
  2. The word "询问" is in zh-hans, when changing the display variant into zh-hant variants ( zh-hant , zh-tw , zh-hk , zh-mo ), the text should be "詢問", but it didn't convert "询问" into "詢問,"

Actual Results:

Unconverted content.

Expected Results:

Converted content.

Character conversion is really a problem for certain wikis, like zh.wikipedia.org. Yet, this wiki uses Flow a lot (1,931 users are trying Flow.)
