We have approximately 80 articles to re-write mainly from article on wikipedia and added to wiki on another site. Wikipedia should be credited as a source. You must be familiar with Mediawiki as you will write directly there. This could be an ongoing project.
Here is a basic guide to re-writing articles
1) Rewrite the title where possible.
Browse through the article, get an idea of what the article is talking about, then rewrite the title.
2) Rewrite sentences
It is important that you rewrite EVERY sentence in the article. If possible, try to IMPROVE the content so that it adds more values to readers. If I can think of a phrase that can be added or replace another phrase, go ahead and do it.
3) Change words where possible. If you see that the word may have other similar replacement, use the "synonyms" function in Microsoft Words to find a good replacement. (The synonyms function will appear when you go to any word in Microsoft Words, right click and move your mouse to the word synonyms. The list of alternative words will appear.)
4) Use bullets where possible - If you see that it is possible to present part of the articles in bullets form, do it.
This should an easy job for those who have done it before.
