What happens to the translated Immersion articles?

I've translated a few lines of some articles (in German) in the Immersion section of Duolingo and I think it's a wonderful way to learn more vocabulary while reading about a subject you enjoy.

My question is, what exactly are we doing? I see some articles with Wikipedia in the title. I'm assuming these are articles that are on the German Wikipedia site, but not the English version. Once one gets translated 100%, is it sent over to the English Wikipedia site? What if the English Wikipedia already has a write up for a particular article that differs from the write up for the same article on the German Wikipedia? And what about the Immersion articles without "Wikipedia" in the title?

Thanks! :)
