Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

Content Translation has been used since 2015 by more than 78,000 editors to create over 800,000 Wikipedia articles. Section Translation aims to bring the option of translation to mobile editors, and can be used to expand existing articles. The session will present a brief history of the research and design process that led to Section Translation, as well as recent research done on the experiences of early adopters. It will conclude with a short demo of Section Translation.

What will attendees take away from this session?

Attendees will learn about a new language tool being developed that can help grow content on wikis, especially when communities of editors are multilingual. They will also learn about ongoing research being done to inform the tool's design and development.
