Why would anyone look for that same article in the Latin-language
encyclopedia, or an Esperanto-language encyclopedia?

They revive successfully by teaching them to children as a daily-use
language. Is Wikipedia related to that? I suppose it could be in some
ways, but I can't seriously see people using the Gothic Wikipedia as a
source of general encyclopedia-type information. If you want to know
some random fact (say, the biography of Charlemagne), why would anyone
look for it in a Gothic-language encyclopedia?
