  • Wikipedia

    Free Web Android iPhone Android Tablet iPad ... Kindle Fire MediaWiki Website

    Wikipedia is a free, multilingual encyclopedia project supported by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. Wikipedia has 17 million articles (3.5 million in English), which have been written collaboratively by volunteers around the world. Almost all of its articles can be edited by anyone with access the Wikipedia website.

  • Wikibase

    Free Mac Windows Linux MediaWiki Website

    Wikibase is the software that runs Wikidata, but is also usable for other projects beyond that. Wikibase allows the collaborative editing of structured data on top of MediaWiki. It is optimized for graph-like, schema-poor data, not for tabular and strongly pre-structured data.

  • Wiktionary

    Wiktionary is a multilingual, web-based project to create a free content dictionary, available in 158 languages.

  • Wikinews

    Free Web MediaWiki Website

    Wikinews is a free-content news source wiki and a project of the Wikimedia Foundation. The site works through collaborative journalism. Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales has distinguished Wikinews from Wikipedia by saying "on Wikinews, each story is to be written as a news story as opposed to an encyclopedia article." The neutral point of view policy espoused in Wikinews distinguishes it from other citizen journalism efforts such as Indymedia and OhmyNews. In contrast to most projects of the Wikimedia Foundation, Wikinews allows original work under the form of original reporting and interviews.

  • Wikisource

    Free Web Website

    Wikisource is an online digital library of free content textual sources on a wiki, operated by the Wikimedia Foundation. Wikisource is the name of the project as a whole and the name for each instance of that project (each instance usually representing a different language); multiple Wikisources make up the overall project of Wikisource. The project's aims are to host all forms of free text, in many languages, and translations.

  • Wikivoyage

    Free Web Website

    Wikivoyage is a free web-based travel guide for travel destinations and travel topics written by volunteer authors. It is a sister project of Wikipedia and supported and hosted by the same non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. Wikivoyage has been called the "Wikipedia of travel guides".

    The project began when editors at the German and then Italian versions of Wikitravel decided in September 2006 to move their editing activities and then current content to a new site, in accordance with the site copyright license, a procedure known as "forking". The resulting site went live as "Wikivoyage" on December 10, 2006 and was owned and operated by a German association set up for that purpose, Wikivoyage e.V. (which continues to be its representative association). Content was published under the copyleft license Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike.

  • Wikispecies

    Free Web MediaWiki Website

    Wikispecies is a wiki-based online project supported by the Wikimedia Foundation. Its aim is to create a comprehensive free content catalogue of all species; the project is directed at scientists, rather than at the general public. Jimmy Wales stated that editors are not required to fax in their degrees, but that submissions will have to pass muster with a technical audience. Wikispecies is available under the GNU Free Documentation License and CC BY-SA 3.0.
