I looked into the architecture and the introduction. It seems to be the open source equivalent of Google Translator tool. It looks promising, because: 1. It's open source and hence bugs can be fixed directly instead of waiting for the company to fix. I speak from my experience of having to do a special cleanup of spurious red links generated by the Google tool (cf. http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=603140&aid=3017517&group_id=93107).
2. It seems to have a collaborative translation module unlike the single-user Google alternative. 3. It's integrated into Mediawiki itself, which is a HUGE win. That said, I'll have to actually see that on a Mediawiki site in order to comment further. - Sundar "That language is an instrument of human reason, and not merely a medium for the expression of thought, is a truth generally admitted." - George Boole, quoted in Iverson's Turing Award Lecture ________________________________ From: Srikanth Lakshmanan <srik....@gmail.com> To: email@example.com Sent: Mon, October 18, 2010 11:57:59 AM Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] WikiBhasha Mediawiki extension Hi all, Just read "Microsoft India research team open sources WikiBhasha -http://goo.gl/sKlA ". From the README file, I understand WikiBhasha is a media wiki extension "aimed at enabling user communities in creating multilingual content in Wikipedia". Can someone who know more explain about this extension. Does any Indic wiki use this at the moment? Regards Srikanth.L Google Profile
