Hi all,

Last month, Microsoft Research (MSR) released a open-source Mediawiki Extension 
called WikiBhasha that helps in producing content in a non-English Wikipedia by 
translating from the corresponding English Wiki article. For a recap of the 
initial reaction in this list, please check 
http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimediaindia-l/2010-October/thread.html#1123


MSR now wants to get feedback on the User Interface, User Experience, and the 
philosophical issues in creating Wiki content using this tool. They have 
proposed a two hour session where experienced Wikipedians will use the tool and 
then discuss their feedback. It is tentatively planned for end of November or 
early December. If you're an experience Wikipedian who wants to participate, 
please signup at http://wikimedia.in/wiki/WikiBhasha_for_Indian_Wikis Please 
also pass on this message to your respective wikis.

 "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
