Description Daniel 2006-08-15 12:01:38 UTC
Hi community,

I'm searching for a funcionality to link wiki articles automatically to other articles. I 
mean that words in definitions should be intgernal links if there exists a related 
article with the title. The propper tool should add internal wiki links automatically. 
Following have a look at an example ...

Available items:
- David Beckham
- English footballer
- Real Madrid
- Captain
- English national team

Item: David Beckham
David Beckham (born May 2, 1975) is an English footballer who plays for Real Madrid. He 
was captain of the English national team from 15 November 2000 to 2 July 2006.

The article should be automatically changed to:
David Beckham (born May 2, 1975) is an [[English footballer]] who plays for [[Real 
Madrid]]. He was [[captain]] of the [[English national team]] from 15 November 2000 to 2 
July 2006.

Does a programm like this already exists? Did someone thought about it?

Thank you very much for support!

Dig a bit in the German Wikipedia, there is tool called Wikifyer (afaicr) that should 
do the trick, or at least provide *some* of the functionallity.
