Summary: Files in document/pdf formats should have an html and
                    translation viewing link on the File: page
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Images and files

Media in formats such as doc.openoffice, pdf, calc, etc, should have a "View as
HTML" link on their File: page for easy viewing.

At present they can only be viewed as a thumbnail/snapshot of part of the
document, or by downloading and external application.

Media that is in the form of a document (whether English or any other) should
have a field where the uploader can specify the main language and a "translate"
option, to allow browser viewing in the viewer's language of choice.

At present non-English speakers do not have ready access to translated viewing
of hosted files and documents (eg * or File:), and English
speakers cannot readily view non-English texts.

Both of these are features anyone will recognize from Google's search of
course, but the options would be helpful on all File: pages. Arguable
translation should be a "toolbox" link on all wiki pages.
