In this paper we take an important step towards better understanding the existence and extent of entity-centric language-specific bias in multilingual Wikipedia, and any deviation from its targeted neutral point of view. We propose a methodology using sentiment analysis techniques to systematically extract the variations in sentiments associated with real-world entities in different language editions of Wikipedia, illustrated with a case study of five Wikipedia language editions and a set of target entities from four categories.
