Uploading articles for translation

Do you have to be a super-user or at a particular level to upload an article for translation? There seems to be a lack of articles to translate at times and when I went to upload some wikipedia articles, I wasn't able to.

There seems to be a bit of a problem with the site at the moment. Anyone can upload them, but a lot are failing at the moment, and the failure does seem to be specific to the article - you can try the same one several times through the day and it still fails, but another will upload. Just keep trying until you find one that works, and let's hope the bug gets fixed!

Great, thanks Luscinda!

Hi JossDuggan- can you share a few of the links to the articles that you're having trouble uploading? It's possible that our language filter is blocking them and we'd like to see them so we can see if there is an error. Thank you!

Hey Kristine - here's one of the one's I tried 'http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estrella' and the other was 'http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago'. Could just be wikipedia articles? I just uploaded an article from the BBC Mundo and that worked fine. Thanks!
