Collaborative Translation Wiki via Google Sites

Google Trends: Wiki, Blog, Translation
http://www.google.com/trends?q=wiki,%20blog,%20translation&ctab=0&geo=all&date=all&sort=0

Although it is not pointed out as such, Google Sites well adapts itself for use as a free Collaborative Translation Wiki with all the Web 2.0 functions needed.

Value-Add Business Opportunity: Linguistic Consulting using Wikis Sep 8, 2008

Henry D was asking for case examples of Collaborative Translation in the thread:

Paper on "Collaborative Translation" by Renato Beninato and Donald DePalma
http://www.proz.com/forum/prozcom:_translator_coop/111509-paper_on_collaborative_translation_by_renato_beninato_and_donald_depalma.html

As Collaborative Translation is centered around the use of wikis, I ran across a
consulting offer outside of the translation industry, but it points to wiki applications
overlapping business processes and translation processes:

... see corporate glossary etc.

The German language website offers more details...

Wiki-Translation Nov 3, 2008

Welcome to wiki-translation, a community dedicated to discussing the impact of the wiki phenomenon on the world of translation. This is a place where people interested in translation using a massively collaborative wiki paradigm can exchange best practices and tools, and discuss how to improve them.

YouTube: Wikis in Plain English

This video was made because wiki web sites are easy to use, but hard to describe.

Please note, why a Web 2.0 Wiki has more advantages as compared to mere Web 1.0 e-Mail use in the case of group collaboration, and especially why the Web 2.0 Wiki approach supersedes a hierarchical or a traditional Gutenberg/Tayloristic processing structure.
