That happens in all the wikipedias which has an active community. That might
also be possible with the the Google translation project.

In general, quality of a wiki article improves as more people work on it.
More edits from more number of users means more quality on the wiki article.
Otherwise there is no difference between a knol/blogpost and a wiki article.
