Automatically sync audio/video/image description of words to all language editions of wiktionary

  • Problem: Currently, when a user upload an audio/video/image description of a word, the audio/image/video will only be presented on the wiki where user insert the file into. However, in most cases, such audio/video/image description should be universal to the same word in same language no matter which language version of wiktionary one is trying to use to describe that word in target language, and the lack of automated process to put such file into all relevant wikis make the visibility of such file less than they could be.
  • Proposed solution: Automatically link any descriptive audio/image/video of words into wikidata entry of lexeme and then automatically display them in relevant entries on wiktionary of all language editions.
  • Who would benefit: All Wiktionary users

Isnt' this doable already with wikidata ?? Should be queryable via P443. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 15:21, 17 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The key word here is "automatic", as in make any user uploading such items to any wiktionary be automatically linked to wikidata and then automatically linked from and show up on all other wiktionary. C933103 (talk) 21:42, 17 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Note that per your talk page, one user should have a maximum of 5 CWS proposals, which means you have to withdraw at least 5 extra proposals by either archiving or asking other proposers to take over them. Do you familiar with other peoples who are interested in this? Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 02:28, 19 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If it would hit the right place, it would be very good. Lets take pronunciation and picture. German Band has a lot of entries. With different pronounciations. And different meanings of cource. An .oga file or .jpg cant be placed randomly. Which means in my world (if I think through the whole idea) that I 1 contribute with a picture from commons and then should be asked 2 if I want to copy this as well to the following list of other wikis, which have the same entry i just illustrated. You have to ask if its right, you cant copy automatically, that would produce incorrect information.
And generally said: I like the idea, that stuff has 1=one place where it sits, where it is physically located (tex data) and then just shows itself in such places where showing is a plus. mlg Susann Schweden (talk) 19:13, 28 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
