Orange Partners with Wikimedia Foundation

Apr 24, 2009

Orange and the Wikimedia Foundation announced a strategic partnership to extend the way people can access free knowledge. Orange, the European provider of internet audience ranking, will initially provide customers in France, the UK, Spain, and Poland with access to co-branded content from the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization behind the web encyclopedia Wikipedia. Partnership activities include: creating specific Wikipedia channels on Orange mobile and web portals, enriching sections of the Orange web and mobile portals with links to relevant Wikipedia information, and developing mobile and web-based widgets which enable customers to access Wikipedia content directly from their Orange mobile or web homepage.
