Hi, i don't (well) understand latest changes (https://docs.moodle.org/dev/index.php?title=Translating_Moodle_Docs&diff=49618&oldid=49598), and mainly why it's important to include interlanguage link on pages having only a redirect.

For what i know, people coming to these pages will be automatically (and immediatly) redirected to the real/useful page, and will never see the language link. I would better tell it's important to create redirect pages in your own language (documentation).--[[User:Séverin Terrier|Séverin Terrier]] ([[User talk:Séverin Terrier|talk]]) 21:19, 9 March 2016 (AWST)

Hi, Séverin is 100% correct that the user will never SEE the interlanguage link, but I have included es (Spanish)  interlanguage links  in English documentation pages so that I REMEMBER to include the redirection page in my own language wiki 2 minutes later. I want to replicate all important English redirections in the Spanish documentation, specially redirections caused by 'Moodle Docs for this page' . If I see a broken redirect or a double-redirect  in my language wiki  I can easily track the original English Doc page that caused that broken-or-double redirection and fix the target in my language wiki.  Maybe someone can improve the text to emphasize the important issue, as Séverin suggests.
