Translated article title conventions: matching by arbitrary number
A unique ID would offer the benefit of being able to match articles in different, possibly unknown languages without infringing on translated articles' usability. The current scheme requires the title to be in English, which is clearly awkward for translation efforts. Lavandero 20:06, 18 February 2011 (EST)
- The current i18n situation is not ideal, but this proposal seems needlessly complex. Please find our ongoing internationalization discussion at International Wikis (2010 edition). -- pointone 11:53, 24 February 2011 (EST)
- No thanks. I'm not going to have 5 accounts for talking to (what should be) the same people.
- And the ID could be automated by the mediawiki, so the the complexity would be offloaded. Of course, no one's going to write a patch if there's no interest. Lavandero 22:50, 24 February 2011 (EST)
