Enable CX for languages the Catalan Wikipedia community translates to
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points

Description

The Catalan Wikipedia community has been very active using Content Translation (creating more than 500 translations as of April 2015).
As part of a recent initiative they are encouraging users to translate articles from Catalan Wikipedia to other languages, and recommending the use of Content Translation. Unfortunately some users found the languages they wanted to translate to are not available (e.g., Asturian and Dutch). This may discourage some users to try CX in the future.

We may want to enable CX for languages the Catalan community is translating to (or is likely to do so). A proposed list (available Apertium packages we may want to prepare in advance are also indicated):

  • Aragonese (an)
    • Apertium supports Aragonese ⇆ Spanish
  • Asturian (ast)
    • Apertium supports Asturian ⇆ Spanish
  • Basque (eu)
    • Apertium supports Basque → Spanish, and Basque → English
  • Dutch (nl)
    • Apertium supports Afrikaans ⇆ Dutch
  • Galician (gl)
    • Apertium supports Galician ⇆ English, Galician ⇆ Spanish, and Galician ⇆ Portuguese
  • Occitan (oc)
    • Apertium supports Occitan ⇆ Catalan, and Occitan ⇆ Spanish

@KartikMistry feel free to create a sub-task (or more) to capture the needed Apertium packaging tasks if that helps to make sure MT support will be ready when enabling the listed languages.

In any case, given that most of the MT-supported pairs do not involve Catalan, the packaging should not be a blocker for this task.
