Microsoft Research Launches WikiBhasha, Multilingual Content Creation Tool for Wikipedia

Microsoft Research has launched multilingual content creation tool for Wikipedia, WikiBhasha that enables Wikipedia users and contributors to explore and source content from English Wikipedia articles, to translate the content into a set of target languages, and to use the content with user additions and corrections for contribution to the target language Wikipedia.
