I have to say i find the story board really confusing.
If I click on
add language links i would assume to get some sort of form where i can
add/remove/edit language links that will be shown on the left. I have
to however choose only 1 language and suddenly many more might be
added, or none will be added. If i don't understand the underlying
workings of wikidata, i think it would seems random wether i am able
to add (i can't really do that either) a link  or it says no page
Let's assume the page for Germany does not have any links yet on any
wikipedia. I would go to  and click [add] next to languages to add
the english version i know exsist.
I would get the modal box to enter a language . I would choose
English in the first box and then start typing Germany in the second.
Then however i get  the no match found error. Even though i know
that is the english version of the german page.
Imho the workflow should be:
I add the first language
- if the page i choose already has a item on wikidata i get a message
saying "hey there are already other languages that are already present
are those correct?" (or similar)
- if the page i choose does not have an item on wikidata, a new item
is created and the two languages versions (in the example english and
german) are added to it.
The window will stay the same however. I think it
should be  or similar.
Why not integrating the feature directly into the lower left language
bar, looking and working similar as the test-repo
Instead of two text-inputs this could be combined and the suggestions
shown as <Language>: <Lemma>.
[Remove] would remove the relation Wikipedia-lemma -> Wikidata-item.
If there is no such relation it should not be possible to add other
For linking a wikipedia-lemma to a wikidata-item a tree view would be
great, showing the wikidata-items an their connected wikipedia-lemmas.
