Serbia official language is Serbian. The Latin alphabet was designed by Croatian linguist Ljudevit Gaj in 1830 and is used by the other standard forms of Serbo-Croatian. The dialect serving as the basis for the main literary and standard language is Shtokavian, which is also the basis of standard Croatian, Bosnian, and Montenegrin. The other principal dialect, Torlakian, is spoken in southeast Serbia, though it is disputed whether it is Serbo-Croatian or transitional to Macedonian and Bulgarian.

Wikimedia Serbia is the country's national chapter.[1] There is one woman serving on the board of the chapter.
