jeblad added a comment to T190283: CX2: Prevent publishing translations with too much unmodified content.

Note that some language pairs often creates flawless translations, like Bokmål-Nynorsk by the ml engine Apertium. For those language pairs there should not be a limit on publishing unmodified text.

Note that if a paragraph triggers a warning then the paragraph should somehow be highlighted. It can be somewhat tedious to try to track down which paragraph triggers a warning… ;)

jeblad added a comment to T190279: CX2: Too much unmodified content warning.

Some languages are really close, and with good ml engines, and thus will produce a lot of translated text that doesn't need to be fixed. Such translations might give a large number of false positives. One example is the Bokmål-Nynorsk engine from Apertium. This engine often generates flawless translations.

Re T89575#2733477, that would be very unwise as the (W3C: Web Annotation Working Group exists and is very vocal about "annotations", thus a lot of text will be published referring to annotations.

This is not listed at m:Research:Revision scoring as a service/Word lists, perhaps someone just forgot it. Anyhow, it needs some work as for example "homoseksuell" is a completly valid description. It is used 243 times in the current corpus at nowiki. The word "rompe" is used 75 times. Such words are only indications that something is wrong with the edit, they are not sufficient as proofs.

The way I calculate this is pretty dumb. It is a simple average over last twelve months and previous twelve months, and the difference between them. As there is a trend over those intervals, the average is lagging. That creates a slight problem with the interpretation.
