Analysis of Editors' languages in Wikidata
Wikidata is unique as a knowledge base as well as a community given its users contribute together to one cross-lingual project. To create a truly multilingual knowledge base, a variety of languages of contributors is needed. In this paper, we investigate the language distribution in Wikidata's editors, how it relates to Wikidata's content and the users' label editing. This gives us an insight into its community that can help supporting users working on multilingual projects.

Abstract

Wikidata is unique as a knowledge base as well as a community given its users contribute together to one cross-lingual project. To create a truly multilingual knowledge base, a variety of languages of contributors is needed. In this paper, we investigate the language distribution in Wikidata's editors, how it relates to Wikidata's content and the users' label editing. This gives us an insight into its community that can help supporting users working on multilingual projects.
