Wikipedia: Medical Articles Translation Taskforce Needs Volunteers

As a huge fan and a long-term administrator of Wikipedia, it’s a pleasure to spread the word about a new initiative which aims at finding volunteers to make important medical entries available in many languages.

Wikipedia is the most used health care resource on the Internet both by unique visitors and by pageviews. For all those interested in global health this is an opportunity to help bring high quality healthcare information to the world.

The effort is primarily concentrating on 80 top importance medical articles of global significance. Currently they are put together as a WP:Book in English at Book:Health care and in simple English at here. In the month of February 2012 these pages in English received a total of 10.6 million page views.
