we have a wiki  with ~30 sisters in different languages. All the
wikis run on the same server using the same the code, but have different
Keeping the interlanguage links using pywikipediabot (what we currently
do) is very inefficient, to link a single page in a single variant to
all its translations we need ~30 updates. I know Interlanguage extension
should help us with this issue, but its description says it will not be
used for Wikimedias wikis, but will be replaced by Wikibase extension,
that is more versatile.
The ideal state is that all pages from non-English wikis contain only a
link to English version (in some format), nobody has to add any other
links by hand and the symmetric and transitive closure of the links is
updated either fully automaticly or using simple maintenance script
(preferably runnable on the same server, without using API as
Pywikipedia bot does).
Is this goal realistic? Shall we use Interlanguage or Wikibase?
