English: Sections are the building blocks of Wikipedia articles. For editors, they can be used as an entry point for creating and expanding articles. For readers, they enhance readability of Wikipedia content. In this talk, we present an ongoing research to align article sections across Wikipedia languages. We show how the available technology for automatic translations are not good enough for translating section titles. We then show a complementary approach for section alignment, using Wikidata and cross-lingual word embeddings. We will present some of the use-cases of a methodology for aligning sections across languages, including improved section recommendation, especially in medium to smaller size languages where the language itself may not contain enough signal about the structure of the articles and signals can be inferred from other larger Wikipedia languages.
