#Wikipedia in #Persian can find any subject

When you expand your horizon, there is more to be found. As you can see in the screenshot, when you search for Jan Wolkers, an award winning Dutch author, you will actually find something. As you may know, Wikidata has information in any language. By adding the Wikidata Search functionality to the Wikipedia extended search, more information will be brought to you.

Statistics prove that people are finding these results. It does provide results that are part of the "long tail" but these numbers add up. It is how we "share in the sum of all knowledge that is available to us".
