The first non-English Wikipedia created was the German on March 16, 2001
The first edit on a non-English Wikipedia was at 21:07 UTC, March 16,
2001, made to the Catalan Main Page. The first contribution in a
non-English article dates from March 17 at 01:41 UTC in the article

celebrating the 10th anniversary with a big banner in all
