The Vietnamese Wikipedia (Vietnamese: Wikipedia tiếng Việt) is the Vietnamese-language edition of Wikipedia, a free, publicly editable, online encyclopedia supported by the Wikimedia Foundation. As with other language editions of Wikipedia, the project's content is both created and accessed using the MediaWiki wiki software. Vietnamese Wikipedia's primary competitor is the Encyclopedic Dictionary of Vietnam (Từ điển Bách khoa toàn thư Việt Nam), a state-funded encyclopedic dictionary also available online.



The Vietnamese Wikipedia initially went online in November 2002, with a front page and an article about the Internet Society. The project received little attention and did not begin to receive significant contributions until it was "restarted" in October 2003[1] and the newer, Unicode-capable MediaWiki software was installed soon after.

By August 2008, the Vietnamese Wikipedia had grown to more than 50,000 articles – a milestone it achieved on August 26 – approximately 432 of which were created by bots.[2] By the time the project reached the 100,000-article milestone on September 12, 2008, bot-generated articles made up around 5% of its corpus.[3] Short articles are designated "stubs"; such articles number in the tens of thousands and include most of the bot-generated articles.[4] The project is fairly unusual among Wikipedia's major language editions for having significantly more registered users than articles, although it is currently in a period of rapid growth.[1]

The Vietnamese Wikipedia uses AVIM, a JavaScript-based input method that allows the user to type accented Vietnamese text in popular input methods, such as Telex and VIQR. The preferred input system can be selected using a box under the sidebar.[5]
