If you are multilingual, you can review a wiki in your native language for errors. Aside from English, my only other language competency is French, but that knowledge is several years old. Multilanguage testing has been sparse. The non-English language wikis were confirmed by eyeballing general form and structure, but actual content could not be confirmed.
