Magnus created automated descriptions they are a start. Your only problem is that they are not using sparql

I am interested in a subset of wikidata and I am trying to find the best way to get it without getting a larger dataset then necessary.

Is there a way to just get the "bios" that appear on the wikidata pages below the name of the person/organization, as well as the link to the english wikipedia page / or all wikipedia pages?

For example from: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q1652291"

"Turkish female given name"
and optionally https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%C3%BClya

I know there is SPARQL which previously this list helped me construct a query, but I know some requests seem to timeout when looking at a large amount of data so I am not sure this would work.

The dumps I know are the full dataset, but I am not sure if there's any other subset dumps available or better way of grabbing this data

Thanks in advance,
