ContentTranslation with Interlanguages from Interwiki links

Ál (talkcontribs)

Hi, I maintain several mediawikis of several languages. Can I use this extension to make easier translate content between them? Or this is only an extension ready to be used just within the same installation? (don't using Interwiki links using instead?

Thanks a lot for the interest!

It should be possible, and if it isn't, it's a bug.

As our FAQ says, we are developing this extension with Wikipedia in mind, so the default configuration definitely has a bias towards Wikipedia itself and sites with a similar configuration. However, most of it is just a MediaWiki extension, so it should work with careful configuration.

If you get stuck, please ask here or report a bug in Phabricator.

I was searching a lot in Meta and in about how Wikimedia foundation does it in and there's not a clear information! It is a wiki familiy or what? Thanks if you know it.

Yes, ContentTranslation is definitely oriented at wiki families, with domains in the form of LANGUAGE_CODE.DOMAIN.TLD (this is configurable), and we pretty much assume that CentralAuth is used for usernames (by its nature ContentTranslation is cross-project, so the usernames should be cross-project as well, and if you aren't using CentralAuth, we don't know how will user accounts behave - we never tested it).

I suggest trying to install it and see what breaks ;)

Bugs and patches are seriously welcome - in practice we are working exclusively on Wikipedia integration.
