@Tpt93 I agree, the data is sometimes suboptimal (as on Wikidata, too). But then also you find pearls like en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti… :-)

@Tpt93 As I said, redirects are more than aliases: for human-readable see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:W…, via the API it’s en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?acti….

@Tpt93 Fair enough, you’re right. Still missing redirects, though (en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?acti…). These are more than Wikidata labels.

@Tpt93 I guess the answer is “because people”. Wikidata’s “Q64” is less speaking than “Berlin” wikidata.org/w/api.php?acti…. Also less API calls.
