Best Wikipedia Languages


The Top Ten

1 English

This is because English is the most widely used language across the world! No other language matches its widespread usage as an official language.

As my natural language is Spanish, I think this Wikipedia has much more information than any other - rock2metal

I agree with this. Dutch should be #2, considering it's 1 of the 3 that have 1 million articles or more.

Considering it is the only language I speak, I think it's pretty good. - BKAllmighty

2 Japanese

Oh come on, the Japanese Wikipedia are considered far more superior than English ones on information database wise. They have much more detailed information and have very few errors. - Kiteretsunu

3 German

The german wikipedia was the second Wikipedia which was founded right after the English wikipdia in May 2001 or something like that.

I think they are far better than other Wikipedias like French, Spanish etc. and they have the chance to overtake English some time.

Better than english - more pictures, more information, better report

When I want to get some informations, I don´┐Ż't search in the English Wikipedia, I use the German Wikipedia.
They also have more pictures!
