There are some fine references – in semiotics (meta-analysis), translation research (metadata about translation), and translation practice (rolling up all the content of a body of work into some new original [translated] piece) – to metatranslation. It is the last definition that I prefer, but all are important and related.

The new Global Voices drive to have parallel content generated in many languages suggests a partnership between meta, meat and silicon translation…

I was wondering whether it would be good for wikipedia to pursue some kind of paralled content program. Does GV have anything that could be borrowed?

No such program yet.  GV doesn’t really have one either; just
by-hand updates of multiple sites/projects in different languages.
