Extract from the main page:

In this Wiki we work at the translations of most of the epigraphic documentation from the ancient world.

EAGLE MediaWiki, also known as Europeana - Eagle Project, is a multilingual wiki for the enrichment of epigraphic images and texts, with special emphasis on TRANSLATIONS, for the benefit of the general public. It is an infrastructure for extending the scope of translations, in the form of a wiki, which will enable specialists to add translations in other European languages even after the project expires.

EAGLE aims to build a multilingual online collection of millions of digitised items from European museums, libraries, archives, and multimedia collections, which deal with inscriptions from the Greek and Roman World. The aim of the network is to make available the vast majority of the surviving inscriptions of the Greco-Roman world, complete with the essential information about them and with a series of peer-reviewed translations in several European languages. These are notoriously unavailable for inscriptions, as photos.

This MediaWiki is designed to give a tool to anyone interested in bridging this gap and contributing translations of inscriptions, either by providing groups of translations or providing new ones. Mediawiki is the software installed on the EAGLE website, and it uses the additional extension Wikibase to produce seamlessly for users, machine readable data.
