Faviki is periodically synchronized with Wikipedia and now contains a little less than a million new tags – around 300.000 new English tags and 669.600 new tags in other languages! That means that currently there are 5.6 million tags in Faviki – 2.7 million English and 2.9 million tags from other 13 languages.
Since the September release and the multi-language tagging feature, you can tag in 14 different languages, and now there are 30% more non-English tags. After English, the largest languages are German (397.8K) and French (388.5K). The fastest growing languages are Italian (51.5% growth) and Polish (44.1%).
