InterWiki is a facility for creating links to the many wikis on the World Wide Web. Users avoid pasting in entire URLs (as they would for regular web pages) and instead use a shorthand similar to links within the same wiki (intrawiki links).

By making wiki links simpler to type for the members of a particular community, these features help bring the different wikis closer together.

How to use the InterWiki links ?

Just write a link according to the following table with the name of the concerned page. But an example will be more efficient.

If you want to make a link to the page about hospex on wikipedia

 [[wikipedia:Hospex| Hospex]]  

will appear as : Hospex

while :

 [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hospex Hospex]  

will appear as : Hospex

How does it actually work ?

Actually, the interwiki make the wiki redirection easier.

While you write wikipedia: the wiki understand http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
While you write csgroup: the wiki understand http://www.couchsurfing.org/group.html?gid=
