Projekt Fredrika improves the coverage of Swedish Finland and Swedish in Finland on Wikipedia, in Swedish and other languages.

The project is organised through this project page in Wikipedia, in a number of languages, and through the registered association Projekt Fredrika rf.

We welcome all interested to take part in the project

  • through improving the quality of existing articles about Swedish Finland
  • through categorising existing pages into relevant categories, such as the ones listed below
  • through creating missing articles based on articles existing in other languages
  • through ideas and suggestions on our Talk page

The project is named after Fredrika Runeberg, born Fredrika Tengström, a Finland Swedish novelist, journalist and the wife of Finland's national poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg. She was a pioneer of Finnish historical fiction and one of the first female journalists in Finland.

Target language versions of Wikipedia[edit]

  • The primary goal is Swedish Wikipedia, where many phenomena in Sweden are currently covered in more depth than equivalent phenomena in Swedish Finland
  • The secondary goal is Finnish Wikipedia, which frequently covers Swedish Finland better than Swedish Wikipedia; that said, omissions exist also in the other direction, and Projekt Fredrika aims at covering those omissions
  • English and French Wikipedia are relevant as a lingua franca for many other languages
  • German Wikipedia is relevant because of close historical ties starting from the Hanse
  • Estonian and Russian Wikipedia are relevant because of close historic ties since over a thousand years
  • Norwegian and Danish Wikipedia are relevant because of common Scandinavian roots
