Vo Nguyen Giap, a general and politician from #Vietnam II

#Wikipedia is a collaborative project and, this was demonstrated really well on the article for General Vo Nguyen Giap. A template was added with information about him. The information was made available from #Wikidata. An Occitan Wikipedian added text to the article and, it is no longer a stub.

Included in the text is a red link to the Communist Party of Vietnam and this red link showed as an identifier in the infobox of Mr Giap. The red link in the text is effectively the translation in Occitan for Communist Party of Vietnam. When this is copy pasted as the Occitan label in Wikidata, it becomes available as a red link in the info box as well. 

What is really cool is that this red link now also shows on the article of Ho Chi Minh.
Thanks,
