What is MSDN Wiki?

MSDN Wiki provides an infrastructure for users to comment, edit, and add content to the Visual Studio 2005 and .NET Framework 2.0 online documentation.

What Microsoft content is included on the MSDN Wiki beta site?

The site includes the English version of the Visual Studio 2005 and .NET Framework 2.0 documentation. In addition, it includes versions of these topics that are machine translated into Brazilian Portuguese.

How is this different from the content on

MSDN Wiki pulls its Microsoft content from the same database used by MSDN, so the Microsoft content you see on the MSDN Wiki site is the same as what is available on MSDN2. With the MSDN Wiki site we are experimenting with ways we can integrate community contributions into the Microsoft content.

Will other languages be included in the future?

Within the next year we plan to add MSDN Wiki functionality to the Japanese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Korean, and Simplified and Traditional Chinese documentation.

Will content I add during the beta period be carried over to the RTW version of the site?
