Finding articles to translate (say, from a series)

I find myself translating quite a few articles which are part of a series, and when I get to the end I want to translate the next article in the series. However I cannot think of any way to actually find the related articles on Duolingo short of looking through all articles in the same category. Any suggestions?

I put some feedback in yesterday asking if it might be possible to have a way to search the articles - for myself, I would like the function so that I can find articles that have only been partially translated or not translated at all. I've had some success finding completely untranslated articles by scrolling down all the way in a section until I find the ones that have no votes, but that doesn't help the articles that are missing maybe one or two paragraphs of translation. I have to say that I was quite surprised when I realised that there is no search function at all. Hopefully the ability to search for both that and for keywords is something that they will consider, if they are not already working on it.


In a discussion here a couple of days ago about suggested improvements to the presentation of translations, one of the commenters advocated links between the installments of multipart articles, and I wholeheartedly agree. So far as I can see, there is no good way to deal with this now. I've simply had to scroll through (sometimes literally) hundreds of articles in a category looking for the separate parts. In one case, I still have never found part three of a four-part series, one that I'm very interested in translating complete.
