Work in progress

- The standard auto-completion mechanism is available when you search for a page to look at.
- It is more clear if you are looking to pages linked from the target page or to the target page.

Content translation [More information • Help pages]
- Further enhancement are made for list (Suggestions/In-progress/Published) items on mobile screens. Long titles no longer overflow or overlap with other interface elements.
- Various changes to the "New translation" dialog and the selected page for translation have been made:
- Longer titles of selected pages are displayed in smaller. Some space has been added around to increase readability.

- The "New translation" dialog now shows a loading indicator and doesn't display an error when you change the source language after an unsuccessful research.
