Wikidata has a diverse community that can help to close the language gap that currently mirrors the lack of diversity of the web at large. The community of Wikidata consists of humans and bots working alongside each other. This hybrid model is unique for a knowledge graph of this size. We want to emphasize on the possibilities that this collaboration can bring and present the current stage of cross-lingual editing of humans and bots.
Further, we will discuss current research on how Wikidata can support low-resource Wikipedias with projects such as Scribe and the ArticlePlaceholder.
