Content Translation Now Creates Articles With Cleaner Wiki Syntax

One of the frequent complaints about Content Translation is that it creates articles with dirty wiki syntax, which experienced wikipedians need to clean up.

We are glad to report that we just deployed a change that will make wiki syntax considerably cleaner, by using the scrubWikitext technology. It is already used in the Visual Editor for making wiki syntax cleaner. It’s being actively developed and now it’s shared with ContentTranslation, so ContentTranslation users will enjoy all the new improvements that will happen in VisualEditor in this regard.
