A short story of one lakh Wikipedia articles

At Wikimedia Foundation, I am working on a project to help people translate articles from one language to another. The project started in 2014 and went to production in 2015.

Over the last one year, a total of 100,000 new artcles were created across many languages. A new article get translated in every five minutes, 2000+ articles translated per week.

The 100000th Wikipedia page created with Content Translation is in Spanish, for the song ‘Crying, Waiting, Hoping

I designed the technical architecture and continue to be the main developer. I am so proud to be part of a project that contributed this much for free knowledge.
