Editors’ Choice

Wikipedia has been answering our big and small questions since its introduction in 2001. What if you only speak Hawaiian? Mai hopohopo! Hauʻoli! (Don’t worry! Be happy!) With information in nearly 300 Wikipedia-supported languages, you’ll be able to find facts in the lingo you like.

Très bonne application

Cela fait un peu plus d'un ans que j'utilise cette application quasiment quotidiennement et je la trouve très bien faite.
L'interface est agréable à utiliser, les mises à jours assez fréquentes évitent toutes sortes de bugs, il est très faciles de changer la langue et la possibilité d'enregistrer les articles pour les relire plus tard même hors connexion est très pratique.

Tellement formidable

J’ai tellement de compliments à formuler sur wikipedia... Ce serait vraiment trop long.
Si je ne devais conserver qu’une application ce serait celle la. C’est tellement plus. Le savoir et la connaissance tout azimut. Parfois un peu trop politiquement correct mais si vaste que le chercheur y trouve rapidement les chemins d’information et de connaissances qui lui permettront de creuser ensuite plus profondément pour développer davantage. Tout simplement indispensable
Bravo et encore merci.
PS : n’oublez pas de faire un don, même modeste pour permettre à cette extraordinaire fondation de poursuivre son œuvre formidable.
