Tutorial: Editing Wikidata

A hands-on session where you learn to edit Wikidata yourself.

Target audience: Wikipedians, GLAM staff with experience in collection registration...


Tutor of this session is Sandra Fauconnier.


  • Please bring your own laptop!
  • A Wikimedia account is recommended when you want to participate and edit Wikidata. If you already have an account on another Wikimedia project, you should be OK. If not, you can create an account on Wikidata here.

Add this to your Wikidata user page ('Babel')

(adapt the numbers to reflect your own language knowledge; feel free to add or remove languages)


You can find the language codes here:

Wikidata in pretty (and sometimes 'in two directions'): Reasonator

Related to the GLAM-WIKI Global South Challenge
