What is Wikitype?

This is a wiki for typewriter enthousiasts. The aim is to create, by time, an encyclopaedia of all typewriter related matters.

Role model of Wikitype is the excellent Rechnerlexikon.de.

Structure of the Wikitype project

Wikitype, as Wikipedia, exists in different languages. As of October 2015, these are: Dutch, English, French, German and Polish. Technically, this is called Wiki family.

Each language Wikitype functions as an independent site. Yet, they are all interlinked, which makes cross-language referencing easy.

Contributors may create articles in any language they feel at ease with.
