According to the Wikipedia FAQ, "Wikipedia is an online free-content encyclopedia that anyone can edit. Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales has described Wikipedia as 'an effort to create and distribute a multilingual free encyclopedia of the highest possible quality to every single person on the planet in their own language.' Wikipedia exists to bring knowledge to everyone."
