How are websites chosen for translations?

I noticed that some articles that are translated are from the same websites. I have yet to seen a website such as Wikipedia or a major website such as Twitter or Facebook. How are these websites chosen? Is this how duolingo makes their money??????

They intend to make money that way, but as for now they're doing it for free. As for how the sites are chosen, I have no idea.

Spanish, at least, does have some translations from Wikipedia: http://duolingo.com/#/translations/Wikipedia


Yup. I have done some from Wikipedia in Spanish.
