Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

I believe that the translation has an effective role in the development of the articles in different languages. Related to the Wikipedia Education Program in Egypt, in both Cairo and Ain shams universities, we depend on the translation from English, spanish, Turkish to Arabic to achieve our mission to develop the articles to be featured and good article in Arabic Wikipedia.

I'd like to focus in the role of translation from Spanish to Arabic on enrich and develop the Arabic content on WEP and it makes a quantum leap on the arabic featured content. Also, we have to ask the spanish comunity to develop its featured and good content from the arabic wikipedia.

The translation itself has an effective role en the students who are able to develop themselves to increase the quality content on Wikipedia. In addition, every student translator knows the context of each culture which makes him translate within the correct perspective.
