Design explorations illustrating ideas discussed during the Pre-hackathon in Olot.



Possible work areas for Barcelona[edit]

These are some areas that could be of interest for the hackathon. Please check the linked Phabricator tickets to get more details or share any comments.

  • Learn about machine translation possibilities (T194353). A session on Saturday about how you can use machine translation in your projects.
  • Prototype mobile translation ideas (T192067). Design solutions for a fluent and engaging way to contribute for new editors on mobile by translating. Help build prototypes to validate these ideas.
  • Support translation lists (T188634). Implement a solution to allow translators to keep their translations of choice in a list for organising their work in Content Translation.
  • Facilitate selecting articles to translate (T105130). Make the dialog to start a new translation in Content translation to be as flexible as possible.
  • Find missing articles in a given area of interest (T113257). Extend the current list of suggested articles in Content Translation for users to pic a specific category to get suggestions for.
  • Notify translators about incomplete translations (T106693). Encourage users to continue their translations.
  • Improve category suggestions for translations (T109276 and T135727). Suggest relevant categories when users try to add categories to their translation, based on parent categories and/or HotCat recommendations
