>> Honestly, if they did employ a dozen or so people to do really good translations between articles in major languages, I'd be all for that. But they're not.
They are working with duolingo.com to do this. The translations, individually, aren't great but duolingo spins an army of drones across them until you have good content.
>> It's already been established that hosting only costs them about $2M/year. A few administrators are not adding much to that.
One does not run the 6th busiest site on the internet with "a few administrators." There are developers, QA, deployment engineers, support engineers, huge network infrastructure, server engineers, corporate it to support all of that, and accounting, HR, and legal to support that. An enterprise of this size is non-trivial.
Looking at it another way, Wikipedia is #7 on the list of busiest sites on the internet. Twitter is #8. Do you think twitter runs on 95m/year?
