I think will be good idea to improve interwikis bot to add guessing of
categories interwikis based on interwikis for articles with same name.
In many cases (countries, cities, administrative units, science
topics, etc) there is big probability that article and category with
same name will mean same thing. Also inclusion of article into
category with same name could be added as safeguard.
Wikipedia contains many categories of subject by country. There ~ 200
countries, so in many cases interwikis for such categories could be
I think will be good idea to create bot which will generate interwikis
by using 2 sets of parameters:
1) Template for generating dictionary of country names - category
names on 2 languages (for example English and Russian) which already
well interwiked: "National symbols of %s", "Государственные символы
2) Templates to generate new interwikis: for example "Football in %s",
"Футбол в %s"
I think such bot will definitely help to avoid routine work.
