Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Mobile and apps/Make interlanguage links more discoverable on the mobile site
The survey has concluded. Here are the results!
- Problem: The mobile version of the site doesn't have interlanguage links. With mobile, I sometimes enter a Finnish Wikipedia article with Google and notice it's a stub, and I have to switch to the desktop version just to access the English Wikipedia.
- Who would benefit: Especially people who speak a language that doesn't have a large Wikipedia.
- Proposed solution: Enable interlanguage links.

Interlanguage links are available on the mobile web. Just below the article title is this button, which will bring up the list of interlanguage links. I do think that the menu is not as obvious as it should be. Rchard2scout (talk) 15:19, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
- I see. Well, that's not obvious at all (the symbol is cryptic), but glad the feature exists. There seems to be a lot of space next to it, so maybe they should clarify it with "other languages" or something. --Pudeo (talk) 15:23, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
- yeh we are completely aware of this problem. If it was up to me I'd add a language link in the footer which when clicked scrolls you to the top and points at the language button. People searching the page would then find it. We used to do something similar when transitioning in the new language button. Jdlrobson (talk) 20:43, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
- Side note, we do have some data that compares an older treatment (a button at the bottom of the page) with a new treatment @ phab:T128917#2120680. Maybe there's a wishlist ask here to help with discoverability of these features (I've seen similarly phrased requests for talk and categories which are also in the mobile UI if you know where to find them) Jdlrobson (talk) 21:57, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
