Indic Language Wikipedias - Statistics - 2009 December

Shiju Alex
Hello All,

Here is a brief statistical analysis of some of the major Indic
language wikipedias for the month of 2009 December.
http://shijualexonline.googlepages.com/2009_december_en.pdf

The data for this report is taken from the statistical analysis (of
all the WikiMedia foundation wikis) prepared and maintained by Erik
Zachte (Website: http://infodisiac.com/). The statistics is available
at http://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/Sitemap.htm. Special thanks to Erik
for all the support he has extended while I was compiling this report.

The report is prepared by collecting the data available on the last
day of every month. That is, the statistical data for the month of
2009 December is collected at 2009 December 31 23:59 PM GMT and so on.

Kindly note that, for time being, I have included the statistical
information of only those Indian language wikipedias that crossed the
1000 articles milestone. Following are those Indian Language
Wikipedias.

    *     Bengali
    *     Bishnupriya Manipuri
    *     Gujarathi
    *     Hindi
    *     Kannada
    *     Malayalam
    *     Marathi
    *     Tamil
    *     Telugu


I have plans to add the following SEA language wikipedias in the
future statistical reports (Statistical report for the month of
January 2010 onwards)

    *     Sinhala
    *     Sanskrit
    *     Bhojpuri
    *     Oriya
    *     Punjabi
    *     Assamese

I hope this initiative will improve the interaction between different
Indic Language Wikipedias/wikipedians.

We (Malayalam Wikipedians - http://ml.wikipedia.org) are maintaining a
similar comparison study of the major Indic Language wikipedias for
the past two years. This analysis has helped us to understand the
status of Malayalam Wikipedia as compared to the other Indic Language
Wikipedias. I hope this report will help other Indic language
wikipedias also.

The PDF of detailed analysis is available at
http://shijualexonline.googlepages.com/2009_december_en.pdf

Please let me know in case there are any issues.


Regards
Shiju Alex

Hoi,
for some more statistical information now about localisation:

   *     Bengali 81.81%  48.47%
   *     Bishnupriya Manipuri 52.68% 0.11%
   *     Gujarathi 40.91% 6.19%
   *     Hindi 97.85%  32.35% ****
   *     Kannada 59.81% 3.70% ***
   *     Malayalam 97.43% 97.85%
   *     Marathi 76.36% 29.00% ***
   *     Tamil 75.14% 1.02% ***
   *     Telugu 100.00% 67.75%

   *     Sinhala 99.28% 23.09%
   *     Sanskrit 27.35% 0.00% ***
   *     Bhojpuri  ??
   *     Oriya 1.39% 0.26% ***
   *     Punjabi 30.35% 0.44% ***
   *     Assamese 43.97% 1.86% ***

The languages marked with a *** are kindly requested to finnish the "most used" messages; these messages are the ones editors and readers are most likely to see.

We are really happy with the recent activities for Assamese and Sinhala.. they have recently started to add localisations at http://translatewiki.net and as a result all the WMF projects get better support for these languages.

You may know that with the LocalisationUpdate extension active on all the WMF projects, new localisations are likely to be available within two days. This extension is also available for release 1.15.. It means that you can host MediaWiki and see the localisation improve on your own wiki.
Thanks,
     GerardM
