Translator's Corner is a program for those who want to contribute in Wikipedia by translating but have difficulties in learning Wiki Markup and other editing tools. It identifies existing articles that need improvement, and provides links to well written articles on the same topic but in other languages. Translators sign up to edit the articles and translate them from the identified sources. Since December 2013 about 50 translators participated in this project having translated over 5000 KB high quality content. This presentation will focus on the implementation of Translator's Corner, its technical details and statistics.
