zemaitis3783188dWhat cms solution do you use for wiki?

Human translation will be just confusing and not helpful because the translators don't have the domain knowledge and context.
Just look at the 'translated' docs from Google and MS.

All is fixed if people just write in the agreed-upon format, no need for automation there :)
