Some time ago, Translators without Borders launched the Wikipedia project together with Wikiproject Medicine and Wikimedia Canada. The aim of this project is to translate 100 selected and reviewed health care Wikipedia articles into 100 languages, and thus create an universal repository of medical knowledge, especially in languages where good health information is scarce and hard to get.

We are proud to announce that we have released the first article into Quechua ( http://qu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faringitis_estreptocócica_kaqqa ) and K’iche’ ( https://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wp/quc/Le_uyab%27il_qulaj_estreptocócica ). A second article, on Croup, is being translated in these two languages and into Guarani. More.
