Don Osborn firstname.lastname@example.org Saturday, November 24, 2012 Pleased to know of the progress of the WikiAfrica initiative, which certainly helps make Wikipedia and related Wikimedia projects more useful for Africa-related topics. Among other things, it is interesting to note the connection with African studies instruction. At the same time, since Wikipedia is explicitly multilingual (with separate editions for each of many languages) it would be interesting to know how many of the 30,000+ articles are in languages other than English, and in particular how much content about Africa has been developed in African language editions.
