Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger founded Wikipedia as a complementary project to Nupedia, an online encyclopedia edited solely by experts. In contrast to Nupedia, which requires articles to be submitted for expert review before they can be published, Wikipedia allows anyone to write and edit articles without any prior approval. As Wikipedia’s number of articles rapidly increased, this soon proved inapplicable. Wales and Sanger developed a system that allows for anonymous editing of articles without requiring formal peer review.

Since its inception on January 10, 2001, Wikipedia has continued to grow exponentially, with over five million articles currently available in English, with the first article being about Albert Einstein. As Wikipedia is currently available in over 280 languages, the content of different language editions is often different because of cultural differences or Wikipedians’ knowledge of various topics.

What is Wikipedia?

Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia that anyone can edit. It was founded in 2001 by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger.

Today, Wikipedia is the fifth most popular website in the world. It contains more than 37 million articles in 290 languages. Every day, there are more than 500,000 new edits made to Wikipedia articles.

Wikipedia is a collaborative project that relies on the work of volunteers from all over the world. Anyone can become a Wikipedia editor. All you need is a user account and a willingness to contribute.
