Add "Translated page" template
Open, LowPublic

Description

It would be really nice if CX added a template that's purpose is to inform users about a translation. On enwiki, it's name is Template:Translated page and has many interwiki. I know, every single of its local versions can be different but... maybe it's doable similarly to Citoid?

Another user requested this some time ago too.

tl;dr: Possibility to adjust atribution text (template with parameters) and place (section in the article, talk page).

In ukwiki the template is https://uk.wikipedia.org/wiki/Шаблон:Перекладена_стаття which supports the following parameters:

  • Original language
  • Original title
  • A comment
  • Oldid translated of original article

The template is being put at the talk page of translation article.

It would be nice if the extension supports the parameters (well the comment one is obviously not that important) and provides some Mediawiki namespace message sysops can use in order to adjust the output with using the parameters given.

For the edit summary message on Japanese Wikipedia it is required as per the guidelines to add the timestamp of the revision as "YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss".

Requested template on frwp is {{Traduction/Référence}}. Would it be possible for wikis to define which template to add to the translation?

I had a new feedback today from fr.wp, but I lost it during the day. :/

Some people at nowiki has proposed a kind of "smart" template that should have some features that supports a proof-reading process with buttons for "Leave the page", "Save changes, something remains", and "Proofreading done, save". The last button would remove the template before save.

I'm not really sure this solves a real problem, to me it seems like it is more of an attempt to support their own idea of proofreading as a concept.

Not sure how they would verify that a proofreading has in fact taken place.


Nope, seems like they want to extend the edit buttons somehow, but they still want an additional template with a warning about articles that isn't proofread. Existence of the template triggers the additional buttons.

This will also imply identification of which sections is proofread. This would be quite messy to put into a template about translation of the overall article.

@Framawiki has created a script which adds the required template on French Wikipedia. He suggests to have it deployed on more wikis.

New request for the Bulgarian wiki : same as others languages, the template is {{Превод от|language code|Name of the article|oldid}}

In January, I didn't adapt my robot script into multilingual, thinking that this functionality would be directly supported by CX in the short or medium term, given the many requests from users and communities.
Now, one year after, can the development team say if they're working on it? If so, how long approximately before deploying? I know there's a lot of other tasks related to ContentTranslation, but I'd like to know if what I'm about to do is going to be useful. Thanks !

Hello, I do apologise that we won't be able to work on this immediately as there is a major overhaul happening with integrating Visual Editor into Content Translation. But we do keep monitoring the suggestions and bugs coming in to the CX board so that if there are small changes that can be done as part of some bigger work, we can slip those in. For this, I'd leave it to the discretion of the individual wikis for now and we can revisit it in another 2-3 months. Hope this answer is helpful. Thanks.

It consider this to be redundant with the information provided in the edit summary, so wikis/users should be allowed to disable the addition of the template (in case the feature is implemented).

It definitely needs to be configurable, as the name and location of the template differs. Ideally, it should be enforced at wiki level, with an (optional?) user override. This way new users will automatically follow the wiki rules with no effort from their part.
