Wikipedia was launched on January 15, 2001, by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger. Sanger coined its name, as a portmanteau of «wiki» (the Hawaiian word for «quick») and «encyclopedia». Initially, an English-language encyclopedia, versions of Wikipedia in other languages were quickly developed. With at least 5,988,325 articles, the English Wikipedia is the largest of the more than 290 Wikipedia encyclopedias.
