The goal of this issue is to create a Glossary for Piwik, that will be automatically generated using the existing Piwik translations.

  • Glossary will contain the definition of all metrics found in reports (for which we have some documentation)
  • Where to display it:
    • On Piwik.org website
    • On FAQ
    • In the product, where?
  • Glossary will be multi-lingual and available in dozens of languages

We discussed this recently in person and I suggested this could be a generic, unbranded online resource with freely licensed content which could then be reused, improved and shared by others.

A section specific to Piwik could then be implemented (as well as inviting other analytics tools to have their section).

This would also be an interesting tool for book authors and online writers.

Constructive suggestion: Remove the "date selector" when it doesn't make sense.

I created #8798

@mattab great work, no doubt this will be appreciated! This is awesome :)

I understand now this current implementation (coming up in 2.15) is done within Piwik itself, so having a dedicated site by itself with separate licensing, etc. is a more ambitious undertaking. In the longer term I still think what I proposed above could be useful. Should I file a separate issue for that?

Glossary is now displayed in the Left "user" Menu, and when clicking on "Help". It's visible for anonymous user, such as on the demo.piwik.org - The menu link won't be visible for view/admin/super users as to not clutter the menu. The Glossary is also linked from the Help page content itself.

See it live @ http://demo.piwik.org/index.php?module=API&action=glossary&idSite=7&period=day&date=yesterday

Glossary is now available at: http://glossary.piwik.org/

It lists all metrics, reports glossary, then lists the languages (with a link), to display the glossary in any language.

For example, glossary in German: http://glossary.piwik.org/?language=de

(this new service was added to our monitoring: http://status.piwik.org/)

Any feedback most welcome! cc @MagicFab

Amesome implementation of the glossary in a separate page, thank you! That's my feedback for now, we should invite feedback from forums/social media/translators before release.
