Taiwan Taiwanese is one of the Taiwan national languages and a common language in Taiwan, and also an active Sinitic language in South East Asia countries like Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines, known as Hokkien or Lan-lang-oe, interchangeable with Taiwan Taigi. Even though it is also an active market language and entertainment industry language, Taiwanese Taigi lacks formal written documents and articles. In this section, I will share the activities that the Taiwanese community is doing, such as adding nan labels and descriptions on Wikidata and editing nan lexemes on Wikidata.

And I will mention the current situation of nan Wikipedia, and how to handle by Wikimedia’s permanent duplicated items, linking different Wikipedia articles’ written forms like POJ or hanji on Wikidata.

There are some editors expanding lexemes on nan Wikdictionary. Sisters project like OpenStreetMap, it is also possible to collaboratively edit on adding nan place names.
