           Summary: marking a new version does not refresh the
                    status/statistics of translated pages
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Translate
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

When a source page, that already has existing translations, gets modified and
then marked by a Translation administrator to incorporate changes, the
individual resources are processed to find those that may become fuzzy and
would be needing changes.

However the translation status and statistics (number of translatle items
completed in that page) if not updated at all, and none of the translated pages
are refreshed.

There should exist a programmed task to regenerate these pages, or if this is
not done (because the result could be a strange mix), at least the status and
completion statistics should be updated.

An example is the translation of Tech news on Meta, which is created in a fast
process which frequently requires several updates while translations have
already started to be created. We find then som intermediate versions that were
completed 100% in a prior version, but left at 100% (also with their "Ready" or
"Published" status) when they should go to a lower completion score (also with
a status changed back to "needing update" if there's some fuzzy item, or
missing item).

Current work around:

After a translation admin marks a new version to translate, it should review
the existing list of languages, one by one, to perform at least one null-edit
in one existing item; or by looking for an item which can be relaiably
translated from the translation memory with 100% match (e.g. frequently reused
items like headings, such as "See also" or common Wikimedia project names used
in lots of translated resources, or common UI elements like "Save" buttons).

To perform a null edit: select the item to edit it, press the END key or click
at end of string, press SPACE, press BACKSPACE to remove that SPACE. Then save
the item unchanged. This is enough for the Translate extension to refresh the
translated page and its status, without even making any change.
