General Information


Other Wikimedia Foundation Products


Wikisource is a Wikimedia Foundation project started in November 2003, to archive a collection of texts that could be distributed as free and open content. It is not only a superior format for storing classics, laws, and other free works as hypertext, but it also serves as base for translating these texts. At the beginning, source texts in all languages (except Hebrew) were all on one wiki. However, Wikisource now has several editions in many individual languages.

As of January 2008, Wikisource offers 315,000 source texts in total. The largest is the English Wikisource, with over 70,000 works.
