Bug ID: 61695
           Summary: Selecting a different change should switch the
                    language of the content served
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: master
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: UniversalLanguageSelector
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

If you go to, Commons, or Meta if you change the default English
for, say, Italiano the MediaWiki UI will change but the language of the content
will stay as is, even if a full Italian version is available.

In the meantime, these homepages contain huge boxes at the bottom linking to
all the languages available.

It makes sense to think that a user selecting Italiano wants to see as much
content in Italiano by default. Luckily, if the browser is defaulting Italian
then luckily the content offered will be Italian as well. Still, I don't see a
reason not to default to language X for everything if the user has selected
such language. This is what any normal website does.
