Wikiquote är en online-baserad flerspråklig samling citat med öppet innehåll. Allt innehåll förutom upphovsrättsskyddade citat publiceras under licensen GFDL och CC-BY-SAsamma sätt som på andra Wikimedia Foundations projekt.


Det började med ett inlägg av Fonzy den 27 juni 2003.

a proposed idea: Wikiquotionary an Encyclopedia of Quotes. The temp page can be found here – fonzy.

It started as on July 10, 2003 and later got its own domain, on August 25, 2003.


Wikiquote had quotations with over 2,500 articles in six languages in June 2004, one year after its first proposal under the domain Some language-speakers other than English requested their own subdomain and on July 17, they were created, starting Wikiquotes in languages like German, French, Italian and Polish.

The Wikiquote project is expanding slowly but steadily. At the end of September there were about 15 Wikiquotes, both large and small. On December 1, there were 24 Wikiquote projects. There were almost 6,500 articles in total in December 2004. At the end of May 2005 the total number of articles reached 14,000. It included nearly 30,000 articles in over 30 languages in February 2006, over 60,000 articles in 87 languages in May 2007 and over 80,000 articles in 89 languages in June 2008.

Since the last update of June 2008, the number of languages has remained stable, while the number of articles has doubled. As of 10 May 2014, about eleven years after its creation, the Wikiquote project now includes over 168,000 articles in 89 languages. Twenty-eight language versions have more than 1,000 articles. Fifty-six language versions have 100 or more articles.

The largest Wikiquotes are Italian and English, with over 48 000 and 46 000 articles respectively. Third is Polish Wikiquote, with more than 24 000 articles.


Sometimes the Wikiquote project faces troubles and challenges. One of the most remarkable challenges was copyright issues on the French Wikiquote. To avoid problems, on March 2006 the Foundation decided to take it down, erase all its material and relaunch it. For details, see the announcement from the Foundation.

However, devoted editors rescued the situation. They settled their charter and polices, and French Wikiquote was relaunched on December 4, 2006.
