Wikidata:Disambiguation pages task force/richtlijnen

This page is a translated version of the page Wikidata:WikiProject Disambiguation pages/guidelines and the translation is 77% complete.


Disambiguation items in Wikidata exist only to provide interlanguage links (sidebar links between pages in different Wikimedia projects). They do not model real-world concepts. Disambiguation pages in other projects should be linked only to disambiguation items, and disambiguation items should contain only site links to disambiguation pages.

The item should only contain links to Wikipedia disambiguation pages with the exact same spelling (disregarding the affix to identify the page as a disambiguation page e.g. (disambiguation)) with only the following exceptions:

  1. Special characters can be added/removed (e.g. circumflex, grave ...)
  2. Transcriptions (creating the same pronunciation with a different script)

In the case that more than one page of one language meet the criteria, the page without exceptions has priority over any page with exceptions and a page with an exception further up of the list has priority over any page with an exception further down of the list.


Alle doorverwijspagina's zouden het statement 'instance of (P31) Wikimedia disambiguation page (Q4167410)' moeten hebben.


Het label zou gelijk moeten zijn aan de Wikipedia pagina, maar een eventueel achtervoegsel dat een pagina van een doorverwijspagina onderscheidt moet wel weggelaten worden.


Alle doorverwijspagina's hebben een taalafhankelijke omschrijving als beschrijving, voor de Nederlandse taal is die 'Wikipedia-doorverwijspagina'. Het is belangrijk dat deze pagina wel slaat op een artikel in de hoofdnaamruimte en niet op een overlegpagina. Voor andere talen dan Nederlands is een volledige lijst hier te vinden.

Speciale gevallen


Many Wikipedias have pages which list people with the same surname. Sometimes these pages also have a discussion of the origin and usage of that surname, making them more like an article. Sometimes these pages also list places or other things which use that surname - making them more like general disambiguation pages. As long as these pages contain a template containing __DISAMBIG__, they can be linked to other disambiguation pages. Sometimes pages should probably be made into disambiguation pages or disambiguation pages should be turned into surname articles. If you feel the label/template/category on the Wikipedia page is incorrect then take this to the Wikipedia talk page and discuss it there or ask for help if there is an active Wikipedia project (list).
