Complementary Information for Wikipedia by Comparing Multilingual Articles - scientific work related to Wikipedia quality published in 2013, written by Yuya Fujiwara, Yu Suzuki, Yukio Konishi and Akiyo Nadamoto.

Overview

Information of many articles is lacking in Wikipedia because users can create and edit the information freely. Authors specifically examined the multilinguality of Wikipedia and proposed a method to complement information of articles which lack information based on comparing different language articles that have similar contents. However, much non-complementary information is unrelated to a user’s browsing article in the results. Herein, authors propose improvement of the comparison area based on the classified complementary target.
