Older news[edit]

Projects by number of content pages[edit]

The tables below are arranged chronologically by original launch date within two main groups: "interlingual" projects (different wiki for each language) followed by "multilingual" projects (all languages on the same wiki). The older Wikimedia projects (such as Wikipedia) tend to be larger than the newer ones, but note that these tables are not arranged by number of sub-wikis nor by total article count.

Note: You can go directly to the table for Wikipedias, Wiktionaries, Wikiquotes, Wikibooks, Wikisources, Wikinews, Wikiversities, Wikivoyages, Wikimedia Commons, Wikispecies, or Wikidata.
