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:

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.

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.
