Short term might be a bit optimistic for that. We could really use a glossary. But it's no small task.
@Niharika Or something like that, but there's a fair chance us pointing to a specific for-profit, not open-source solution would create unnecessarily distracting discussions/fights.
@Shivangi95 So, regarding Duolingo and their ambition to translate the web: It was more difficult than they had anticipated to integrate this with the surrounding world. They mention Wikipedia, yet integration with Wikipedia was never really achieved, and Duolingo has discontinued their translation project. It was a nice vision. Harder to implement.
There was a question about timeline further up. It's difficult to say exact dates, of course, and to some degree I think this should be decided between the intern and the mentors. Internship is between December 5 and March 5. Assuming your time can be spent evenly throughout these months, something very roughly like this:
@Shivangi95 OK, I've finally had time to see the video. I'll respond with reflections later today.

@Deskana Will this take effect next week, or later?

(Removing tag I assume was here simply because it was in the parent task and automatically included; this shouldn't be in Tech News, as it's just about one wiki.)
... and since there was a problen with the books function, now updated, in English, German or Swedish.
T174263 has gone forward without this, so this is no longer relevant.
Posted on [[ Tech/News/Reader feedback/2017/Analysis | on Meta ]] and linked to from Talk:Tech/News as well as the survey page.
I'm planning on adding it to the upcoming Tech News issue.
We'll focus on the proposal phase (two weeks) and the week immediately after that, when Technical Collaboration will assign more resources to support Community Tech. Running up to that and during the voting phase, it'll mainly be me.
Feedback available here:
Questions analysed and moved into the larger discussion.
This doesn't seem to happen prior to the 2017 wishlist process.

@Shivangi95 I'll put that video on things to watch – difficult to answer your question without having seen it. (: Feel free to ping me if I don't get back to you regarding this.

I've done an analysis of the Tech News-related results on Meta. Based on that, T175779 contains my recommendations for Tech News and CE Insights. In short, 224 and 225 should change "Meta:Tech/News" to "Tech News" or "The Tech News newsletter". 517 is fine as it is from a Tech News perspective. 529.01 is probably fine as it is.
I've gone through the questions, tried to see if they're relevant from a Tech News perspective (with an arbitrary importance scale */10 based on how useful I found the information from last CE Insights) and added comments on what could be improved from a Tech News perspective.
On request from the university, bonus after break – working in a geographically distributed setting
Some rough notes in case anyone is interested:
Wikivoyages (except fa, where the talk page seemed completely dead) on the global distribution list updated. Translated if translation could be stolen from Tech News 2017/37, in English otherwise, except for the Germans who'll have to live with my German.

Addendum: Update the Wikivoyages too, they care about PDF rendering to a larger degree than e.g. the Wikipedias or Wiktionaries.
But they can't just be kept. It said "2016".
Given that translations will mainly be relevant for CentralNotice banners if we do it the same way as last year – which I think we will – the year has to be updated, but I don't think anything else really need to change.
@Shivangi95 Yes. (:
The banner has been updated this week.
As a bonus:
If we use preloaded text as a sort of template again, it shouldn't be just in English.
I've drafted an analysis now, and noted what we can act on. Will post on Meta soon.
