Grants:IdeaLab/Syncing Articles across languages
What Wikimedia project(s) and specific areas will you be evaluating?
Is this project measuring a specific space on a project (e.g. deletion discussions), or the project as a whole?
Describe your idea. How might it be implemented?
A common identifier for parent article. All other language about the same post must be linked. So when major edits are made to the parent article, editors of regional languages must be notified of the same.
Are there experienced Wikimedians who can help implement this project?
If applicable, please list groups or usernames of individuals who you can work with on this project, and what kind of work they will do.
Changes spread fast and information stays accurate across regional languages. Hence people don't have to depend on the English language version to keep things updated.
How would your measurement idea help your community make better decisions?
After you are finished measuring or evaluating your Wikimedia project, how do you expect that information to be used to benefit the project?
See if the changes are reflected and whether people have to resort to checking English for upto date information.
Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need?
Do you need people with specific skills to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? If you can’t implement this project, can you scale down your project so it is doable?
Technical expertise is needed. I can work on verification and review and help with technical details.
