Points forts
Points faibles
  • Bloqué dans la république populaire de Chine (voir la blocage des projets Wikimédia).
  • Due to the cultural difference and the difference in translation among PRC, HK, TW and other communities, there are often disputes and edit conflicts, especially for political articles. Thus, the time consuming process of dispute resolution and consensus building is required.
  • Absence of software robots for vandal fighting.
  • Most users good at translation do not have sufficient time, and those who have sufficient time are weak in translation. As a result, many articles are left partially translated.
