User Talk page mysteriously created in Serbian!
Hi everyone, I have never edited in Serbian but a few days ago got an email notication welcoming to Serbian Wikipedia, which is a valid link to my account for Serbian. Anyone know why? This seems like possible hacking? Mistakefinder (разговор) 05:54, 31. јануар 2022. (CET)

Enabling Content and Section translation tool in Serbian Wikipedia
Apologies as this message is not in your native language, Помозите у превођењу на свој језик.
The WMF Language team is pleased to let you know that we will like to enable the Section and Content translation tool in Serbian Wikipedia. For this, our team will love you to read about the tool and test the new Section Translation tool so you can:
- Give us your feedback
- Ask us questions
- Tell us how to improve it
Below is background information about the tools and how you can test the Section translation tool.
Content Translation has been a successful tool for editors to create content in their language. More than one million articles have been created across all languages since the tool was released in 2015 and in Serbian Wikipedia, editors have used it to create more than five thousand, five hundred articles. However, the tool is not out of beta in Serbian Wikipedia, limiting the discoverability of the tool and its use and blocking the enablement of the Section translation in your Wikipedia.
Section Translation extends the capabilities of Content Translation to support mobile devices. On mobile, the tool will:
- Guide you to translate one section at a time in order to expand existing articles or create new ones
- Make it easy to transfer knowledge across languages anytime from your mobile device
Serbian Wikipedia seems an ideal candidate to enjoy this new tool based on a significant mobile activity in your Wikipedia. We plan to enable the tools on Serbian Wikipedia in the coming week if there are no objections from your community. After it is enabled, we’ll monitor the content created with the tools and process all the feedback. In any case, feel free to raise any concerns or questions you may already have as a reply to this message or on the project talk page
Try the Section translation tool
Before the enablement, you can try the current implementation of the tool in our testing instance. Once it is enabled on Serbian Wikipedia, you’ll have access to https://sr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ContentTranslation with your mobile device. You can select an article to translate, and machine translation will be provided as a starting point for editors to improve.
Please provide feedback about Section translation on the project talk page. We want to hear about your impressions on
- The section translation tool
- What do you think about our plans to enable it
- Your ideas for improving the tool
Thanks and we look forward to your feedback and questions
Content and Section Translation tool enabled in Serbian Wikipedia
The Content translation tool can be discovered by users through several entry points. However, users not interested in translation can disable it from their preferences. Also, with the Section translation tool, you can start translating an article on your mobile device right when you notice it is missing in Serbian. From a Wikipedia article in any language, switch languages and search for српски. If the article does not exist, an option to translate it will appear, as shown in the image below.
We know that these tools will help translators in your community to add content using any device with ease. Content created with the Content and Section Translation tool will be marked with the "contenttranslation" and “sectiontranslaiton” tag, respectively, for the community to review. We’ll monitor the content created, but we are very interested in hearing about your experience using the tools and reviewing the content created with it. So, enjoy the tools and provide feedback on improving it. Thank you!
