  • I pinged the most 100 users using the Content Translation tool, and asked them to try the new version + put any complain or suggestions.
  • I found 6 active users are using CX2, so I pinged them again, and their comments:
    • User:أبو هشام السوعان: I tried CX2 and I do not have any comment, it seems that the developers have made it possible to publish the translation on the personal domain pages and this is the most important thing in my opinion.
    • User:إسلام (Islam): The new version is good and has many features that were not present, but sometimes I noticed that after the translation the references made up of external links containing a tag: <div> </ div> so I remove it manually
    • User:Aya Reyad: I tried the tool a few days ago. At first I could not deal with it. After the repeated experience I found that it was good and easy to deal with, I just had a similar problem that Islam mentioned.
    • User:محمد عصام: In my opinion CX2 relatively better than the old version, but sometimes there is a problem in translating sources automatically like this, and I do not know why.
    • User:Abdeaitali: The tool has improved a little, in addition to the problem of references it will be nice to bring improvements to infoboxs on the tool .
    • User:Alnamlah1: I used the new version, which is very excellent, but there are some disadvantages in translating articles that contain trademarks, since they do not work, and also, you can not partially delete the original article (does not want to translate it), also hard to use it to translate templates.

alanajjar added a comment to T203544: ContentTranslation changes the interwikilinks if the articles exist previously .

Well, sometimes it is useful to publish a translation even when such an article already exists, so Content Translation is not blocking it completely, but we do show a warning and let the user decide.

Of course it's good to let the user decide, but it shouldn't change the interwikilinks in Wikidata automatically from the already existing article to the new one.
