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
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."
