Norwegian-language editions of Wikipedia

umbrella term for the two separate Norwegian-language editions of Wikipedia (Nynorsk [nn] and Bokmål/Riksmål [nb]) which shared a single wiki until the creation of [nn] and redefinition of [no] as Bokmål/Riksmål only – prefix "nb" redirects to "no"


There are two Norwegian-language editions of Wikipedia: one for articles written in Bokmål or Riksmål, and one for articles written in Nynorsk. The Bokmål and Riksmål edition started in November 2001, while the Nynorsk edition started in July 2004.
