Welcome to WikiProject Taiwan! This is a WikiProject open to anyone interested in editing, expanding and refining Wikipedia's coverage of articles concerning Taiwan (officially the Republic of China). Our scope may overlap with WikiProject Japan and WikiProject China in some areas, but will be separate most of the time. This WikiProject strives for neutrality on topics of a geopolitical and ethnic nature.

Articles relating to the following topics: History of Taiwan, Culture of Taiwan, Taiwanese people, Republic of China Armed Forces, Geography of Taiwan, Sports in Taiwan, Energy in Taiwan, Politics of the Republic of China, Religion in Taiwan

This project covers the creation and editing of articles related to Taiwan, its cities, counties, geography, transportation, culture, history and so on. It aims to expand Wikipedia's resources on Taiwan in a fair and accurate manner.


  • To create a body of articles that accurately depicts the history and culture of Taiwan and the Taiwanese people.
  • Expand the number of articles regarding Taiwan and Taiwanese subjects.
  • Highlight the situation of post-1949 Taiwan without running into POV issues.
  • Add more English sources to existing Taiwan-related articles, using the <ref> element.



These are for discussion on proper usage of spelling for Chinese related pages.

  • Peer review: Request peer review to examine articles and obtain ideas for further improvement.
  • Photography: Request and supply photos needed in articles.
  • Translation: Request and assist in the translation of high-quality non-English material.
