After Portuguese and Afrikaans have been added, there are now 28 
languages. But of the largest Wikipedia languages, we're still 
missing Japanese (5th biggest) and Chinese (12th).  Who can help 
with this?

English, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenStreetMap

Japanese, http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenStreetMap

Chinese, http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenStreetMap

Next in Wikipedia size without an OpenStreetMap article are 
Catalan (Wikipedia's 15th largest language), Volapük (19), 
Indonesian (25), Hebrew (26), Korean (27), Vietnamese (30), 
Serbian (31), Bulgarian (33), and Persian (35).  For comparison, 
Swahili is the 89th largest language of Wikipedia, having 8400 
articles, http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/List_of_Wikipedias

Careful! Of course you will have to follow the rules of Wikipedia 
and prove why this article is needed, relevant, sourced, etc.
