Wikinews is a collection of wiki websites which present up-to-date, relevant, newsworthy and entertaining content; without bias, with content that is written by the volunteer Wikinews editors. A project of the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), all content is released under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 License, which makes the Wikinews content perpetually available for free redistribution and use.

As of March 2013, Wikimedia Meta-Wiki indicates that there are 33 Wikinews versions in different languages, with the Serbian version being the largest with over 70,000 articles, followed by the English version just shy of 20,000 articles. New languages added when there is significant support for the language. Meta-Wiki historical article new language pre-launch documents the evolution of some of the various language versions of Wikinews, and Meta-Wiki requests for new languages illustrates the process for all Wikimedia Foundation projects. Just like the convention of other WMF projects such as Wikipedia, each Wikinews language version is a sub-domain under the wikinews.org domain. The Japanese Wikinews, for example, is at http://ja.wikinews.org [1]

The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the non-profit organization responsible for a very large number (over 850 in total) of very active wikis, grouped together and known as 'projects'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed for them known as MediaWiki. The Foundations' wiki projects include Wikipedia (encyclopedias), Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikinews (news source), Wikisource (free content primary and secondary source texts), Wikispecies (a free species directory), and many others as listed below. Most of these projects have separate wiki versions written in many different languages. There is also the Wikimedia Commons (for images, videos and other media files that can be used by all the Wikimedia projects), Wikidata (central space for data used on all WMF projects), and the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (for issues common to all Wikimedia projects). Its most recent project, Wikivoyage (a 'travelpedia'), was inducted to WMF in late 2012.

Wikimedia Foundation is a member of the Open Source Initiative.
