If you're already using templates heavily, then making them Semantic Templates (inserting relation definitions into templates, not pages) might be the best first approach - it'll immediately give you lots of semantic data.

As an administrator on two wikis, one that has just installed SMW and

editors or administrators in mass-annotating existing articles.

There are many ways in which one could "help convert Wiki-article to
SemanticWiki". If you want to support people with (semi-)automatic semantic
annotation, then there is a large body of related work available. The
aforementioned DBpedia uses a large-scale but simple approach based on MW
syntax, other projects analyse the text of articles to create suggestions
using methods from Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing.

If you did not mean that but maybe something like simpler user interfaces for
making semantic articles, then extensions like the SemanticForms or the
Halo-Toolbar are interesting to you.

Best regards and happy holidays,
