at the moment each wikipedia is shwon in the left side menue, if the accodring edit is done for the page, or the server is adding it automatically over night, right? Why then not for all languages over 20 mio? have no problem with it looking up the article in french and english and a thrid language and see, how ative each country was, how different the subject view on it is and which focus is made...

So why not japans and germans hybrid language users shodul do the same, so that each keyword generates a link to the same keyword in all other languages as well?

this is growing "in the network-field", not just one article or one country..
