Ghanaian Pidgin goes live on Wikipedia

Translate this post

Ghanaian Pidgin has become the sixth Ghanaian language to be approved on Wikipedia, a free encyclopaedia edited by volunteers around the world and hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation.

The language, also known as Kru Brofo is spoken mostly by the youth in Ghana especially in senior high schools and university.

The language was approved on Saturday, 9th April 2023 during its incubation stage in the Wikimedia Incubator. The transition was completed on Wednesday, 5th July 2023.

This makes it possible for speakers to read and contribute to Wikipedia in the Ghanaian Pidgin. 

This can be accessed through or through the translation button.

The Ghanaian Pidgin language joins Dagbani, Twi, Ewe, Fanti and Gurune as recognized Ghanaian languages by the open platform.

The process was spearheaded by the Ghanaian Pidgin Wikimedians Community in October 2021.
