Wikinews is a collection of wiki sites which present up-to-date, relevant, newsworthy and entertaining content; without bias, with content that is written by the volunteer Wikinews editors. A linguistic 'project' of the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), all content is released under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 license (CC-BY 2.5), 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 language versions are added when there is significant support for said 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 https://Ja.Wikinews.org.[1]
