4 Easy Ways to Export Wikipedia for Offline Use

Ads by Google

Wikipedia is a treasure trove of information, and we’ve shown you all you need to know to master it like a pro. While browsing Wikipedia itself is great, sometimes you need to send its articles elsewhere. Here are four ways to export Wikipedia for various needs.

Using the Book Creator, you can choose any articles you like and turn them into a book.

Simply visit the landing page and choose Start book creator and you’ll be able to add any article you visit to your book. Once you’re done, you can export it to PDF or even order a printed copy. Or, try visiting the book collections page to download books made by others!

If you only need a single article, just click the Download as PDF on the left sidebar of any article (it’s under the Print/export heading). This is perfect for grabbing a snapshot of an article that’s likely to change, or downloading a copy of information you’ll need when offline.

Those who haven’t yet gone paperless can utilize the Printable version in the same sidebar heading to easily print an article out, perhaps for a friend who doesn’t have Internet access.

Finally, anyone who wants to go big can actually download the entirety of Wikipedia. By default all images or other multimedia files are excluded to save space in the download, but if you have space to spare, there are other download options available.
