What sort of wiki are you using? Confluence has an "import word" feature
that automatically creates pages for each section of a document. There are
some quirks, but it works pretty well.
You can also import files in bulk from SP to Confluence by simply dragging
and dropping them onto the Confluence attachments page. But that will only
create attachments, not wiki pages.
