Wikipedia:Your first article
October 28, 2021
This is essential information before writing your first article: Try editing existing articles first to learn how to edit in Wikipedia, and read good articles. Search Wikipedia before you write the article to make sure it doesn't exist. Try searching anonymously and with common spellings or possible translations. If you are fluent in translating from another language such as English, we have made an easy and simple tool for you, the Content Translation Tool. (Explanation of the use of the tool) Collect references for the information you want to add, articles without authoritative references may be deleted. Do not write articles about yourself or your friends, advertising pages, or personal research. Try to get the opinion of other contributors to the article you want to create, for example on project talk pages or portals on Wikipedia. Consider drafting the article in a subpage of your user domain (you must have an account on Wikipedia) and take other contributors to its content, well documented and format. Once the page is ready to publish, it can be moved to the Articles domain. Gather references from reliable and well-known sources; confirmation of the above. Create a new page. List your sources of information and references and indicate the importance of the article. Remember that if you write an article that violates the applicable policies, it will likely be deleted quickly, as Wikipedia has a system for reviewing new pages, where users review all articles shortly after they are created. Articles that violate the noticeability policy and unverified information from reliable independent sources are very likely to be removed.
