  • あなたのオフライン版ウィキペディア

  • ウィキペディアをオフラインで利用できます
  • Knowledge is freedom and Kiwix is knowledge. With Kiwix you get Wikipedia without using the Internet. For free and no matter who or where you are: on a boat, in the middle of nowhere or in jail. With Kiwix you get offline access to almost everything you want to know.
  • But Kiwix offers even more. It is also suitable for all HTML content and supports the ZIM format, a highly compressed open format with additional meta-data. Kiwix also gives you the freedom to copy, modify and distribute the data.

  • You may ask yourself: How on earth does it work? No worries, it’s not rocket science. You simply download Kiwix for free and store the whole Wikipedia on your computer, USB flash drive or DVD.
  • Kiwix is mostly installed in schools, universities and libraries which cannot afford broadband Internet access. It’s so much faster than the Internet and can also be used by many institutions to save bandwidth and readers’ time. But many people use Kiwix for their own personal purpose. That’s the case, for example, for persons suffering from censorship or prisoners.
  • Kiwix provides a range of opportunities; we would probably have to write a book to mention all of them. So here’s a short list with the most important features you have to know:
  • 持ち運べる
  • Kiwix is a portable application you don’t need to install.
  • Kiwix supports a wide range of systems and architectures.
  • ユーザー フレンドリー
  • Kiwix works like your web browser.
  • Kiwix is translated into your native language.
  • ライブラリ
  • Kiwix own library allows you to gather content at first sight.

  • There are many ways to participate and to work with us in order to develop the Kiwix project. The following list features many topics where help would really be appreciated.
  • 翻訳
  • The Kiwix user interface is translated into more than 100 languages. We still have some work to do.
  • サポート
  • Kiwix has a broad community – we need to care for it! It’s essential to maintain good communication internally and with our users; both should be able to quickly get the information and the help they need.
  • プロジェクト
  • We have a lot of ideas and we try to implement the best ones. Supported by the Wikimedia Foundation, Wikimedia national chapters and a few other organizations, Kiwix is able to set up ambitious projects.
  • 開発
  • Kiwix software development is assured by a really small team of developers. To continue the development of Kiwix, new talented developers are welcome. Mentored by an experienced team, they may work on new features or help to maintain the existing solution.
  • Kiwix is supported by Wikimedia CH, Wikimédia France, Wikimedia Italia and the Wikimedia Foundation.
