The Dutch Wikipedia (Dutch: Nederlandse Wikipedia) is the Dutch language edition of Wikipedia. Started on 19 June 2001, this edition reached 100,000 articles on 14 October 2005. It shortly surpassed the Polish Wikipedia as the sixth largest edition of Wikipedia, but then it fell back to the eighth position. On 24 January 2006, the 125,000th article was added. On 1 March 2006 it overtook the Swedish and Italian editions in one day to rise back to the sixth position. On 19 March 2006 the 150,000th article was added and the 200,000th article was added on 24 May 2006. The project reached 300,000 articles on 28 May 2007. As of 10 January 2008, the Dutch Wikipedia contained over 400,000 articles. The milestone of 500,000 article was reached on November 30 of the same year.[1] From the start of the Dutch Wikipedia the number of newly added articles a day gradually increased. In March 2006 it made a rapid growth to peak at an average of 1000 in early May 2006. After this number was reached the growth dropped to an average of only about 250, comparable to the averages around December 2005.

The Dutch language Wikipedia has the largest ratio of Wikipedia pages per native speaker from all of the top 10 largest Wikipedia editions.

In a 2006 Multiscope research study, the Dutch Wikipedia was rated the third best Dutch language site, after Google and Gmail, with a score of 8.1.[2]
