Is there any way to display an auto-generated life summary of a person like this one:

This requires custom logic for each language.

e.g. In English we need to distinguish various structures such as

a/an

John was a farmer
John was an accountant

in/on

Mary was born in July 1900
Mary was born on 18 July 1900

Other languages are much more complicated, and irregular.

Jean est né en France
Jean est né au Japon
Jean est né aux pays-Bas
Jean est né à Paris
etc.

There "ancestors report" in webtrees tries to do this. It produces passable results for English, but poor results for many other languages.

Maybe a look at Fancy treeview could give you some inspiration. This module by JustCaremen for webtrees 1 produces a narrative report .

I still have the idea to implement a webtrees interface to a chatbot (using Telegram for example). This would allow asking: "Tell me more about my aunt Sally" and get a response from webtrees. For such a function, a module that produces a narrative report would be necessary, too.
