Crowdsourced translation using MediaWiki

The MediaWiki Translate extension was first introduced in 2007. Initially it was only used on for software localisation. Later it was enabled on KDE's userbase wiki for translating their documentation. These days, the Translate extension is also used on Wikimedia wikis where the equivalent of more than one thousand A4 pages of pages of structured documentations is being translated each month. The next step is a feature for the mass translation of Wikipedia pages into any language combination to combine machine translation and content generation to allow every single human to freely share in the sum of all knowledge.
