Can you see the number of articles made with the content translation tool on a given Wiki?

Hi team,

Is it possible to see the number of articles generated with the content translation tool at a specific language Wikipedia? If so, could you give me some pointers how to go about it? Thanks so much in advance! @MichellevL (WMNL)

@SIryn Is this the kind of info you're looking for: en:Special:ContentTranslationStats? You can find similar page for other wikis in the "Special pages" section, usually somewhere at the bottom of the page. Or just change the "en" in the URL to the language code of the wiki you're interested in.

Translate to Punjabi Pa

Guglani (talkcontribs)

I used Google translate tool which is quite accurate in translating text from English to punjabi, I want to edit limit for translated text to be able to publish from existing 95% to somewhere 99% both fo paragraphs and overall text for the article. Suggest me how can I adjust this limit so that I am able to publish my translated article.~~~~

Hello Guglani,

Thank you for your feedback. If there is a consensus with the Punjabi Wikipedia community to adjust the machine translation limit from 95% to 99%. Please, create a phabricator ticket like this one (providing the link to the discussion with the Punjabi community in the ticket) and share the link here so I can notify the WMF Language team to adjust the machine translation limit for your Wiki.

Another option would be for you to provide the discussion link here, and I can create the ticket and share it with you here.

I hope this information helps; please let me know if you have any questions. Best regards!

Non-extended-confirmed warning

2NumForIce (talkcontribs)

Hi, I was helping a mentee using CXT on enwiki (not extended confirmed). They saw a warning saying that says an edit filter prevented publishing (no warning message, only something like)

Filter triggered: Content Translation Tool edits (filter 782) (see w:Wikipedia:Content_translation_tool#See_also, then the prevented link)

Is the warning that says something like "This wiki decided to limit mainspace publishing to extended-confirmed users"? (I saw it in a screenshot years ago)

sorry not used to flow

Can't post my translation

IKasio (talkcontribs)

I was translating page Одеса в годы гражданской войны from russian to ukrainian and now i can't publish my translation because it says that its too unchanged, what am i supposed to change if it is translated accurately? Help me please.

The automatic translates services done mostly everything right, i fixed mistakes where i found them.

Translation cannot be published (French)

Filipe46 (talkcontribs)

The translation cannot be published, with the text:

"Votre traduction ne peut pas être publiée parce qu’elle contient trop de texte non modifié."

It's a translation of the article Narcotráfico em Cuba, in Portuguese.

When translating this page and many other that use ref pointers inside the text.. like '<'ref name="ijde-2002" /> or {{sfn|..

and then the refs at the bottom of the page as..

{{Reflist|colwidth=35em|refs= or {{refbegin or simply by the Name in the case of {{sfn|..

It would ease the translation work if you just copy them verbose into the translated text like '<'ref name="ijde-2002" /> or or {{sfn|...

and all the others

Thanks a lot for your work..--~~ ~~

Hello, did it work in the end? The issue here is not the content translation tool, but an abuse filter that was triggered by the (translated) content.

Traduction filtre d'abus

TaKpté (talkcontribs)

Bonjour, le filtre a traduction refuse la mienne, comment faire ?

1234qwer1234qwer4 (talkcontribs)

Hello, is this resolved now? The issue was definitely with the locally configured fr:Spécial:Filtre antiabus, not the content translation tool itself.

Problème de pourriel sur une traduction

Auralgribs (talkcontribs)

Bonjour, le robot de vérification de ma traduction de l'article Coptic Cross me dit qu'il y a un risque de pourriel. Or j'ai bien vérifié et les liens qui posent problème étaient déjà présent dans l'article originel. Que dois-je faire, je n'arrive pas à le valider ?
