After Erik's email about supporting open source machine translation , I've been researching options and having talks with several machine translation researchers about what would be the best way to integrate MT into Wikipedia. Unfortunately I couldn't find a single solution that, on its own, would fulfill all requirements (specially being open source). On the plus side, there is a set of technologies that if integrated, they could provide a positive and reliable experience. It would be a hard way to get there, and even so, it might be worth exploring.
This is the preliminary draft: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Collaborative_Machine_Translation_for_Wikipedia It is a shame that the talk about "Supporting translation of Wikipedia content"  has not been accepted for WM13. Hopefully there will be enough interest to discuss this topic there anyways.
