Wikipedia translation

I've just found a site that is already translated. Why is it still available for translating? It was one of the Wikipedia sites. What's the point of translating it again?

It's probably for test driving the translation system.

It could also be to improve the existing translation.

Actually, most Wikipedia articles in other languages are not translations. They were written independently and may contain completely different viewpoints and focus on different aspects.
