Test yourself!
Wikidata is a multilingual project. That means...
  1. Each language has its own, independent set of facts, just like Wikipedia. (click to expand or collapse)
    INCORRECT! Although users can choose from over 300 languages to view Wikidata, all languages use and see the same data.
  2. Entries to Wikidata are in English, but the labels should be translated by hand into other languages. (click to expand or collapse)
    INCORRECT! You can view Wikidata entries in any language. Labels are tied to the language you use to read Wikidata.
  3. You can work in the language of your choice, since the underlying data is independent of your Wikidata language preference. (click to expand or collapse)
    CORRECT! This is one of the most exciting things about Wikidata - since it's language-agnostic, you can easily switch between languages and enter data in any language you like.
  4. To contribute to Wikidata you need to be able to speak all the languages used in the project. (click to expand or collapse)
    INCORRECT! That would be very cool, but is not necessary.
