Lydia and Wikidatans,


In what ways might Wikibooks in Wikidata now make possible, or anticipate, translation or correlation of a specific book between different languages, if at all? In what ways might individual words (or even letters) in any book in any given language, eventually become items in Wikidata where - "items are used to represent all the things in human knowledge, including topics, concepts, and objects" - ?

Thanks for this exciting development.

Hey folks :)

Last night we added Wikibooks to Wikidata. Wikibooks' language links
can now be maintained on Wikidata. Please give them a warm welcome and
keep an eye on for
questions if you can.
