The Vietnamese Wikipedia ( _vi. Wikipedia tiếng Việt) is the Vietnamese language edition of Wikipedia, a free and publicly editable online encyclopedia. The wiki initially went online in November 2002, but did not begin to receive significant contributions until being "restarted" in October 2003. As of August 2008, it has more than 50,000 articles, which it achieved on August 26, with at least 432 of which were created by bots.Data compiled using [ Escaladix's created articles list] and a list of bots at the Vietnamese Wikipedia.] The project is fairly unusual among Wikipedia's major language editions for having significantly more registered users than articles, although it is currently in a period of rapid growth.

The Vietnamese Wikipedia uses AVIM, a JavaScript-based input method that allows the user to type accented Vietnamese text in popular input methods, such as Telex and VIQR. The preferred input system can be selected using a box under the sidebar. [ [õ_tiếng_Việt/Tiếng_Anh Wikipedia:Gõ tiếng Việt/Tiếng Anh] , Vietnamese Wikipedia.]

One of the Vietnamese Wikipedia's competitors is the "Encyclopedia of Vietnam" ("Bách khoa toàn thư Việt Nam"), also available online.
