The Maltese-language Wikipedia or Wikipedija is something that Wikimedia Community Malta is committed to support. The project was created in the early years of Wikipedia development, along with many other languages, but remains largely underdeveloped.

WCM's first public engagement with Wikipedija took the form of a presentation delivered by Dr Toni Sant during a seminar on translation organised by the European Commission's Representative Office in Malta at Europe House in Valletta on 24 November 2018. The presentation was called Using Wikipedija to engage with digital prospects for the Maltese language.[1]

This was followed up with a Wikipedia Editing Workshop for Translators at the University of Malta on 17 January 2019. Further development has taken place in this area in 2020 and 2021.
