Microsoft Research launched WikiBhasha beta, a multilingual content creation tool for Wikipedia, that 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 available as an open source MediaWiki extension, under Apache License 2.0, and as a user gadget in Wikipedia. The tool is also available as an installable bookmarklet, hosted on Windows Azure platform.

WikiBhasha will support content creation in more than 30 languages. Initially, the Wikimedia Foundation and Microsoft Research will also work closely with Wikipedia user communities focusing on content creation in Arabic, German, Hindi, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish.

The name WikiBhasha derives from the well-known term "wiki," denoting collaboration, and "bhasha," which means "language" in Hindi and Sanskrit.
