Despite the fact that Wikipedia has pages in hundreds of different languages, the list of really popular languages is very small and in many countries people read Wikipedia more often in a foreign language than in their native language.
For example, the English version of Wikipedia ranks first not only in English-speaking countries, but also in India, Norway, Iceland, many Balkan countries, African countries, Southeast Asia, and even Mongolia. And also in Georgia!
