Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Larger suggestions/Adapt MediaWiki to the needs of Wiktionaries/Proposal

Other languages:
  • Problem: MediaWiki hasn’t been designed to make dictionaries or thesauri, to manage a distributed multilingual content, to interface lexicographical and semantics data and “sentence-plain” contents. The only improvement made to fix that point is Cognate extension, whereas many ones are needed so Wiktionaries can address their goals.
  • Proposed solution: Create a dedicated team, including a project manager to coordinate these efforts, a product owner in liaison with communities, a UI/UX engineer to design some propositions and to test them with readers and editors, developers to implement chosen improvements, a communication manager to cover this work and to assist the transformation of practices.
  • Who would benefit: All Wiktionary editors and readers, from all language communities.
