easily answer questions as: "give me a list of most translated works" or "sort the languages based on translation counts of certain work (e.g. book)". I think it makes sense to judge the translation movement of important works with a direct subject -> property -> object format.

Let's say Book A has an translation to Language 1 (Book A-L1) and another one in that language is made (Book A-L1 v2), how would you model that? It's also subjective and non productive to model. Take the bible, translated to a ton of languages. This property would explode. I think the edition or translation of (P629) is far more efficient to make that relation between tranlations. You just need to work more in the query. Ederporto (talk) 01:48, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
