Language Coverage Matrix Dashboard

by Harsh Kothari for Wikimedia

The Language Coverage Matrix dashboard would help automate the information about language support provided by the Language Engineering team for e.g. key maps, web fonts, translation, language selector, i18n support for gender, plurals, grammar rules. The LCM would display this information as well as provide visualization graphs of language coverage using various search criteria such as tools or languages. I will build this web based dashboard using Javascript libraries integrated with MySQL to manage the data. I found this project very useful for language engineering team since wikimedia supports more than 300 languages. This tool will help them analyse the details of various available features of individual language. The Language Engineering team can efficiently prioritize and include some missing features, that is the features which are not currently available in particular language. The overall impact of this project will lead to an efficient and enhanced user experience for Wikis. This web based dashboard will also help other products and communities for showing innumerous search results and visualization graphs for the same.
