Telenor and Ooredoo to support Wiki Zero

Myanmar Wiki developers and the staff from Telenor are discussing to provide free mobile access to Wikipedia, the free online encyclopaedia.

The project is called Wiki Zero and competitors Ooredoo have also pledged their support. Organisers plan to train freelance developers to provide articles in Myanmar for free.

“Telenor asked for 50 articles to in initiate. Their recommendations are systematic. Ooredoo requested for 100,000 articles before their sim-card on sale. We can give 100,000 articles they want though I’m afraid this would end up a perfunctory effort,” said Mayar, a developer for Myanmar Wiki.

There are only 30,000 articles in the Myanmar version of Wikipedia due to complications using Unicode which supports the Myanmar alphabet system.

Wikipedia is the largest online encyclopaedia which provides publicly generated multi-language content for free.
