Hi!

When trying to publish translation to Ukrainian of English wiki article I keep getting this error: "Error converting HTML to wikitext: docserver-http: HTTP 400"

Please help!

In which article did this happen?

Sthelen.aqua (talkcontribs)

It happened to En:Jodrell Bank Observatory Jodrell Bank Observatory ( ). I'm sure I put the link to the article in my message and shocked to see it is not there. But just now after saving I saw that again the link is autodeleted here from my post.

Sorry to grave-dig, but the very same error happens when I try to publish my translation of Battle of Radzymin to my Polish draft space. No idea what to do about it. Confirmed it on both Firefox and Edge. Some 12 GB of RAM left, so it's not that problem either.

This error is a frequent visitor on this space lately. But almost everyone creates his own post for it. And it still has not being resolved.

I think the root of the problem might be in the autotranslation of template/infobox at the top of the article. Other articles (where I did not try to autotranslate infobox and did not touch it) were published just fine.

See also my topic below "Cannot publish" for a similar error (.onion from enwp to rowp), with a javascript stacktrace attached.

See my translation of User:SmozBleda/HistologijaEn to Uporabnik:SmozBleda/Histologija on sl wikipedia.

I get this error at 95% finished and the target side is grayed and I am mighty p*d.

I have created my own copy of the english article on Histology, because I got stuck the first time around by (very probably) the autotranslation of template/infobox (see posting above).

I must have hit on another case of autotranslation biting the grass later down the article (table handling?)

pls advise. Like, can I get at the wiki page with the unfinished translation? Cut and paste the target paragraph-by-paragraph? Get me out of the tar pit, pls.

I am getting this notice: " Error converting HTML to wikitext: docserver-http: HTTP 400" when trying to publish a finished translation from Spanish to English about Osteoid. @Amire80

Millars (talkcontribs)

have the same problem since several days / weeks translating from English, French or Catalan to Spanish, in different articles, and also from Spanish to Catalan.

Royal Society Biologist (talkcontribs)

We should contact a higher rank Wiki member to solve this problem

The same thing happens to me when translating the article "Self-efficacy" from English to Spanish, I get the following error: Error: Error converting HTML to wikitext: docserver-http: HTTP 400. What can we do?

Хомелка (talkcontribs)

Partial solution of the problem is that in those paragraphs where there is a complicated formatting with templates (usually the first paragraph with tl:lang-XX) and the paragraphs of references and literature IS re-translate using Yandex.translate, but not Apertum. It helps me almost always. @Amire80

Millars (talkcontribs)

I had the problem using Apertium, and almost always not using ti:lang-XX

JOAN (talkcontribs)

I found a partial solution, which solved my problem. Do not use Apertium, just use the Yandex translation. So I managed to publish the article: Autoeficacia.

Royal Society Biologist (talkcontribs)

Thanks, I used Yandex translation in every paragraph to then translate myself, it worked.

Xurugetu (talkcontribs)

Nothing works. Stuck.

Halibutt (talkcontribs)

@Joanmrl:, sadly, the problem is the same in articles where Apertium is not even available (translations from/to Polish, for instance), so "not using it" is not really a solution, but I'm glad it worked for some of you.

JOAN (talkcontribs)

@Halibutt I understand, but apparently @Royal Society Biologist did work, and I guess some other users will also work. I believe that any partial solution for a few should be welcomed, while you totally solve the technical fault. :)

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I know the team is looking into this. Of course, any kind of new "intel" that is not "I'm having this issue too" ;) may be helpful!

Pallares (talkcontribs)

@Joanmrl:, el problema sucede tambien en la traducción frances-catalan usando Apertium. Espero se resuelva, y que la solucion no sea "not using it" Apertium.

Millars (talkcontribs)

I want to say that It works sometime, but sometimes not. And I did not found why and in which cases work or not. So, when I start an article I don't know whether my work will be published or not. Very dissapointing.

JOAN (talkcontribs)

@Pallares no dije que eso fuera una solución, sólo comenté lo que a mí me funciona, a demás no soy ingeniero de Wikipedia, soy sólo un usuario, es lógico que no podría darte una solución contundente. Saludos.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The task is now marked as high priority and assigned to a developer. Thanks all.

Pallares (talkcontribs)
Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I am not a developer, and maybe you meant "I hope it will be resolved quickly".

Pallares (talkcontribs)

Yes, I hope

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I think nobody has been able so far to reproduce the issue, which is the first step in making sure it can be resolved. I'd be super grateful if everyone here could list the following info: browser, operating system, articles titles, and any other info you think may help (like, "it never occurs if I do X but it always occurs if I do Z". Thank you very much.

Halibutt (talkcontribs)
Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Looks like there's progress on this, according to Phabricator.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The bug has been fixed, so if your issues were /entirely/ due to it, they should be gone now. Please retry and let us know.

Halibutt (talkcontribs)
Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

You provided fantastic information so far. Thanks a lot for it. I think the console logs will help devs a lot.
