Since most of my education was in English, I could probably help.
Plus being Francophone, I understand where most "franglais" (as we say 
in Canada, in English or French) errors come from :)
Most of the errors I've noticed in the wiki were minor, which I tend to 
correct as I encounter them.
I'm more worried about ideas being clearly expressed - which requires 
being clearly thought beforehand.
A lack we probably all suffer from, from time to time. :)
