Template badge for translated articles[edit]

For articles that have undergone translation, I have created a prototype template derived from the Translate template:

The intention is that we can place at the top of the 'Discussion' page in order to show when a translation took place. Additionally we could have multiple badges to indicate multiple changes over time:

It would be great if someone can suggest a way that the link in the badge can go directly to the historical version rather than the latest version, for example:

Comparing language versions?[edit]

Swept in from the pub

Is there some reasonably easy way to get a list of articles whose development levels differ across language versions?

For example, I'm an English speaker with reasonable French. I would not try translating into French, but I'd be interested in improving English WV based on the French version. Any article where the F version is, say, two levels higher on the none-outline-usable-guide-star scale than the E version would be worth looking at. Pashley (talk) 15:09, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

The only thing we have are articles manually tagged with {{translate|fr}} at Category:Articles needing translation from French or another similar category. I suppose it would be theoretically possible to build a bot which compares articles based on the criteria you gave and inserts the appropriate {{translate}} tag, but I don't know how to write such a script.

This may be possible with Wikidata badges, should they ever get it done... --Rschen7754 04:52, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Pashley, I recommend using this link in order to more easily find the articles in Fr Voy which are the largest in size. in most cases these articles would be the ones the French Wikivoyage community invested most efforts on through the years. In addition, I recommend check out the few French Wikivoyage Star status articles, as well as the few French Wikivoyage Guide status articles. Good luck. ויקיג'אנקי (talk) 05:37, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
