The original one was founded in January 2004. As of November 2021, the Kurmanji Wikipedia has 50,252 articles and Sorani Wikipedia has 35,170 articles.[1] There are also two other Wikipedia editions for Zazaki and Southern Kurdish with the latter still in the test phase.

HistoryEdit

The Kurdish Wikipedia established on January 7, 2004,[2] designed to contain articles in Kurmanji and Sorani at the same time. On August 12, 2009, Kurdish Wikipedia separated into two versions due to technical and linguistic issues. The old version (ku.) remained as Kurmanji Kurdish Wikipedia and a new version (ckb.) created for Sorani Kurdish Wikipedia.
