Wikimedia Community Malta is committed to improving Malta-related content on Wikipedia in the hundreds of languages available around the world.

Our primary focus is on the Maltese-language Wikipedia, where we naturally focus on all content and not only Malta-related content as with other language Wikipedias.

The Maltese-language Wikipedia or Wikipedija was created in the early years of Wikipedia development, along with many other languages, but remains largely underdeveloped.

Wikipedija – L-EnÄ‹iklopedija Ħielsa

WCM’s first public engagement with Wikipedija took the form of a presentation delivered by Dr Toni Sant during a seminar on translation organised by the European Commission’s Representative Office in Malta at Europe House in Valletta on 24 November 2018. The presentation was called Using Wikipedija to engage with digital prospects for the Maltese language.[1]

This was followed up with a Wikipedia Editing Workshop for Translators at the University of Malta on 17 January 2019. Further development has taken place in this area since 2020 and was eventually established as an ongoing activity for Wikimedia Community Malta by 2022.
