Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Reading/Make language conversion work in the Electron Pdfs Service

◄ Back to Reading

  • Problem: Afaics it's still impossible to unify the variant of downloaded PDF files of pages, this could be a nightmare e.g. for a Taiwan user who does not have zh-hans knowledge (does "维基百科,自由的百科全書" fair for you rather than "维基百科,自由的百科全书" or "維基百科,自由的百科全書"?). PS: I was requesting Google Code In mentors to handle the task below, but no one replied me that's OK or not.
  • Proposed solution: post "variant" parameter from printable mode?
  • More comments:


I think this will just happen once the underlying APIs become variant-aware (T43716, T159985) which is probably too specialized for Community Tech, and planned anyway. --Tgr (talk) 08:06, 28 November 2017 (UTC)[]
