Wikidata aims to support Wiktionary editors and content, with including lexicographical data into the knowledge base, but also by providing automatic language links for the projects. On this page, you will find an overview and updates.
Since 2017, the interwikilinks on Wiktionary are not added manually anymore. Instead, two automatic systems provide links for the content pages of Wiktionaries (linking pages on different language versions of Wiktionary having the exact same titles) and the pages outside of the main namespace (links stored on Wikidata).
You can find the documentation page regarding interwikilinks on Wiktionary here. Feel free to help improving and translating it!
Lua access to Lexemes
Since June 2022, Lua access to Wikidata Lexeme is enabled on all Wikimedia projects. Practically, Lua access means that we created some new Lua functions that will allow you to integrate Lexemes, Forms and Senses from Wikidata on any of the pages of any Wikimedia wiki. Among many possibilities that this feature offers, you will be able to create for example: conjugation or declination tables, stubs of Wiktionary entries, tools displaying the meaning of a word on Wikisource, and many other things, depending on what your project needs. Until someone on your project writes a Lua module that makes use of these new functions and then uses this module on a page, nothing changes for your project.
In order to use it, people with experience with Lua modules and templates can look at the documentation listing the available functions. You can also have a look at simple example showing the singular and plural forms of an English noun: the template, the module, the result.
Examples of Lua modules on Wiktionary can be added on this page.
Several Wiktionary communities started discussing about possible usage of Wikidata data on Wiktionary, ideas of tools and needs for new features. Some projects also have a page dedicated to collaboration with Wikidata. Here's a list of the current experiments, feel free to improve it!
- On English Wiktionary, there is a project page dedicated to Wikidata. The arbitrary access (possibility to include data from Wikidata on Wiktionary) has been deployed on demand of the community, for testing the feature.
