Sproglig mangfoldighed på Wikimedia

A project to support indigenous, minority, marginalized, less-resourced and other underrepresented language communities to have access to their at-risk knowledge


Wikimedia Indigenous Languages (WIL) er det koordinerende organ for fremme og udvikling af oprindelige sprog på Wikimedia-projekter.

Wikimedia Indigenous Languages meetup at Wikimania 2019, Stockholm, Sweden


Visionen for Wikimedia Indigenous Languages er at se summen af al viden tilgængelig for alle på deres eget sprog og til at dele den viden fra disse sprog selv. Det vil opnå dette ved at:

  • række ud til folk der taler oprindelige sprog, med det mål at udvikle Wikimedia-projekter på deres sprog
  • etablere arbejdende samarbejde med eksterne organisationer involveret i fremme af oprindelige sprog
  • dele erfaringer og give feedback til hinanden med et syn mod at inspirere og berige hinandens arrangementer og programmer
  • oprette og udvide Wikimedia-projekter på alle oprindelige sprog
  • støtte Wikilang som et projekt der skal dokumentere alle sprog
  • handle sammen for at give udtryk for almindelige bekymringer og interesser indenfor Wikimedia bevægelsen


I forbindelse med dette projekt, er et "oprindeligt sprog" et sprog, der er hjemmehørende, eller aboriginal til en region og tales af oprindelige folk, men er blevet reduceret til status af et mindretalssprog. I nogle tilfælde kan dette omfatte en ø af talere fjernet fra deres sprogsamfund med traumer og diaspora. Synonymer er "små sprog", "truede sprog" og "autoktone sprog"; nogle regioner bruger også "indfødte sprog". Wikimedia oprindelige sprog fokuserer på sprog, som er underrepræsenteret på Wikimedia-projekter.

The status of these languages and language communities in Wikimedia may vary greatly from one case to the other, ranging from the most under-represented to those more developed and ranking on the middle-upper end of Wikimedia projects overall. All share a feeling of treading common ground from their lesser-used status, aspiring to both make universal knowledge available to everyone and local knowledge become universal, in close connection with each language's community.

Hvorfor er det vigtigt?

Languages are the pillars of cultures and the vehicles of oral traditions. They are an essential part of people's identities and an important heritage to preserve. Each language is a unique way of thinking and structuring a view of the world. Each loss of a language represents the loss of centuries-old knowledge, heritage, and history for ever. Cultures are greatly weakened by the loss of their languages and often vanish with it or soon after.

According to UNESCO, 43% of the languages spoken in the world today are vulnerable or in danger of extinction. A language becomes vulnerable when its youth no longer learns it.


Wikimedia Indigenous Languages's rolle er at støtte og fremme bestræbelser på konkrete projekter til udvikling af Wikimedias projekter i små og truede sprog. Det vil fungere som et internationalt organ til at indsamle og udveksle bedste praksis, erfaringer og metoder til at udvikle små sprog Wikimedia-projekter og bevare truede sprog. Det vil også tilbyde støtte til folk interesseret i at udvikle initiativer og nye projekter. Det vil også blive kontaktpunkt til at etablere samarbejde med andre organisationer, der arbejder hen imod de samme mål, og vil også aktivt søge sådanne samarbejdsmuligheder.


Many lesser-used languages operate at a regional level, often relying on a lingua franca for communication and a referential larger culture; it is the aim of this resource to establish common bonds, as well as cooperation, beyond these areas. Becoming a meeting point opens the opportunity to provide and receive assistance and feedback to learn from each other's experiences with events, programmes and/or helpful technical inventions, and to use information as a way to showcase one's own initiatives. The main language of communication is English, but any other languages are welcome; the goal is to make news and messages as communicative and far-reaching as possible.
