Scottish Gaelic edition of Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Scottish Gaelic Wikipedia (Scottish Gaelic: Uicipeid, [ˈuçkʲɪpetʲ]) is Scottish Gaelic version of Wikipedia. As of 27 January 2021, it contains 15,195 articles and has 23,099 editors.


The encyclopedia was founded in 2004. In 2017, Susan Ross was hired by the National Library of Scotland (NLS) to develop and promote the encyclopedia, a part time position that lasted 12 months. The NLS intended to augment its Gaelic resources following a digitization drive that put Gaelic-language materials on the Internet. Ross is a second-language speaker of Gaelic who learned the language as a teenager and completed a doctorate in Gaelic studies. She has been editing Uicipeid since 2010. Working with community groups, she created help pages and worked to attract more editors. The grant was sponsored by Wikimedia UK and Bòrd na Gàidhlig.

At one point, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig offered a module teaching students how to edit Uicipeid.
