Wikimedia Commons (English main page) is an online repository of free-use images, sound, spoken texts and other media files. It was launched on 7 September 2004.

Motive[edit]

Growth of Wikimedia Commons

The aim of Wikimedia Commons is to provide a media file repository "that makes available public domain and freely-licensed educational media content to all, and that acts as a common repository for the various projects of the Wikimedia Foundation."

Wikimedia Commons is a multilingual project. The default language for is English, but registered users can customize their interface to use any other available user interface translations. Many pages have also been translated into various languages. Users are encouraged to help with the translation.

Please see the Wikimedia Commons welcome page and the community portal for full details, for historic details the historic project plan.

Central media repository[edit]

Înainte, fiecare dintre multele proiecte Wikimedia -- fiecare Wikipedia şi Wikționar, fiecare Wikibooks, Wikisource, Wikinews, Wikiversity şi Wikiquote -- foloseau propria lor bază de imagini. Nu exista o modalitate performantă de a trimite către imagini din alte proiecte. Multe fişiere folositoare trimise pe o wiki puteau să treacă neobservate pe alta. În plus, modalitatea de a introduce fişierele pe fiecare wiki era greoaie şi necesita un surplus de întreţinere.

One can use the {{Commons}} template in the Wikimedia sister projects (i.e. Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikinews...) to link to Commons.
