Microsoft Research has just launched a beta version of “WikiBhasha” – a new tool that helps users create multilingual content on Wikipedia.

What’s interesting is that you don’t have to be a subject matter expert to contribute, and you don’t even have to be familiar with the Wikipedia format.

WikiBhasha beta currently works from English as the source language, but all of the target languages currently offered by Microsoft’s free Machine Translation system Microsoft Translator are supported.

To see how it works, have a look at the short video intro below from the WikiBhasha site.

And read the full story behind WikiBhasha on the Microsoft Research site.
