- Symptomatic problem
- Something that may harm contributors' experience. This is a result of a chain of events, not its cause.
- Root cause
- What was identified as the possible origin of symptomatic problems. It isn't necessarily something negative — it may be organizational or cultural aspects. But its existence definitely played a role in the appearance of said problems.
- Immediate fix
- Mitigates or eliminates symptomatic problems.
- Long-term solution
- Mitigates or eliminates root causes.
Identification and classification
|Symptomatic problem||Root cause||Immediate fix||Long-term solution|
|Information is fragmented.||Wikis were created separately at its own pace. Integration between them is still something new.||Creation and maintenance of a "landing page" (meta:Meta:Babylon/Translations).|
|Documentation fails to establish a proper target public.||Documentation/Style guide does not have a section dedicated to instruct Documentation writers about this.||Creation of simplified documentation for newcomers introducing fundamental tools and concepts. Indication of existing documentation as "further reading".|
|Good resources to establish a quality standard are missing.||Current documentation relies on other (external) resources to give a more complete perspective.||Highlight what is valuable in other (external) resources on the page.|
|Inactive translation community.||Translators are usually people involved with other projects, not people dedicated to that task only.||Promotion of the creation of localization teams.|
|Lack of standardization.||There isn't a MediaWiki glossary or an easy search tool to explore translated strings.||Creation of pages dedicated to gather glossaries that mention the most important terms.||Creation of a searchable database made of those glossaries.|
