All wikipedia articles that have wiktionary articles should mutually link
Closed, DuplicatePublic


I am looking a the wipkipedia article about something.

I am wondering why it doesn't have a link somewhere on it to the Wiktionary article about the same word. E.g., "Debriefing".

And vise versa.

Not all items have corresponding entries.

But for those that do, the should have a link to that entry somewhere on their page.

Should we wait for Wikidata/possibly OmegaWiki to incorporate this data?

Should we wait for Wikidata/possibly OmegaWiki to incorporate this data?

It would make sense to wait for Wikidata to incorporate the data versus just making the software check for an article with the same name on Wikipedia or the Wiktionary, because some articles with the same name on one and the other may not necessarily be about the same topic. Having it be done manually on Wikidata allows making sure that the articles have the same topic while also allowing the information to be shared between all Wikipedias.

Consider automatically linking all exact matching names,
then slowly weeding out or adjusting the wrong ones.

Reason: perhaps 85% will indeed be correct hits, so better to have that 85% completed by tomorrow, and leave weeding out the wrong 15% for the long-term goal.
