Word2MediaWikiPlus

Word2MediaWikiPlus is an extension for Microsoft Word. It's function is to convert a Microsoft Word document to MediaWiki. There are many people that are really excited with this new functionality.

What makes this software different from all the other MediaWiki extensions, is that it is not written in PHP, it is written to work with Word. This is why it is rather special that it is now also supported in Betawiki. It required a new approach to exporting the messages.

MediaWiki is not only used within the Wikimedia Foundation but also outside its projects. What interests me is if new people will come to Betawiki to help support this extension. I hope it will help us in getting more people cooperating on functionality that serves our shared needs.
Thanks,
