WikiBhasha beta

WikiBhasha beta is a multilingual content creation tool for Wikipedia. Developed by Microsoft Research, WikiBhasha beta enables contributors to Wikipedia to find content from other Wikipedia articles, translate the content into other languages, and then either compose new articles or enhance existing articles in multilingual Wikipedias.

WikiBhasha beta is a powerful content creator and has an easy to use, intuitive user interface. It enables easy and quick translation of articles from English to more than 30 other languages supported by Microsoft’s Machine Translator and Microsoft’s Collaborative Translation Framework (CTF).
