== Syntax ==
  
== Usage ==
+
<nowiki>{{Languages|PageName}}</nowiki>
=== General ===
 
This template is to be placed on template site of user languages. It is written as (example for English):
 
  
<nowiki>{{languages|English|en}}</nowiki>
+
* '''PageName''' (optional) - the name of the page to display language links for. If omitted then the English version of the current page is used. This parameter can normally be omitted, as it is only required if you want to link to a page other than the one you place the template on, which is very uncommon. If this parameter is used on a sub-page make sure you supply the root name, not the full page name (e.g. on [[MediaWiki/fr]] you would need to use <code><nowiki>{{Languages|MediaWiki}}</nowiki></code> and not <code><nowiki>{{Languages|MediaWiki/fr}}</nowiki></code>).
  
You write only ''English'' (not ''language'': the template writes that by itself).
+
== Usage ==
 
 
=== Language void ===
 
For most languages, saying "language" after it is necessary to direct it straight to the language's mainspace page, but sometimes saying "language" directs it to a red link. To stop this problem put:
 
 
 
<nowiki>{{languages|English|en|langvoid=}}</nowiki>
 
 
 
=== Different category ===
 
This template automatically puts the template in its User template category, to redirect to a different User templates category do this, using the Scottish language as an example:
 
 
 
<nowiki>{{languages|Scottish English|en-sco|catalt=en}}</nowiki>
 
  
=== Category sections ===
+
The template should only be placed on pages that exist in more than one language, and it should be placed in the same location on each translation of the page.
By default the template categories templates like:
 
  
1<br>
+
The English version of a page is always the main version, with all other languages as sub-pages, named using the appropriate language code (see below).
[[Template:User en-1]]
 
  
2<br>
+
For example, on the Main Page you would include the text <code><nowiki>{{Languages}}</nowiki></code>, both on [[Main Page]] itself, and on each of its language sub-pages. The template automatically creates links to any language sub-pages that exist, e.g. <code>Main Page/ja</code>, <code>Main Page/fr</code>, and ignores non-existant languages.
[[Template:User en-2]]
 
  
And so on, but if you wanted to replace these with different abbreviations such as:
+
See [[Project:Language policy]] for further details about translating pages.
  
c<br>
+
== Supported languages ==
[[Template:User en-ca-1]]<br>
 
[[Template:User en-ca-2]]<br>
 
  
e<br>
+
This shows you the name of each language's sub-page (using ''Main Page'' as an example). Other languages may be added easily as necessary. Please use the appropriate [[meta:List of Wikipedias|prefix, as used on Wikipedia]] when adding a new language. Please do ''not'' add languages for which no pages exist yet, as this will increase the time needed to include the template without adding any benefit (languages are only displayed to the user when the relevant page exists).
[[Template:User en-1]]<br>
 
[[Template:User en-2]]<br>
 
  
Add <nowiki>|sections=</nowiki> with the abbreviated code, such as "ca" or "en", etc. Do '''not''' place the "-", at the end of "sections" as was done previously, this will screw up the chronological order.
+
The link on the language names goes to the Wikipedia in that language. '''If no Wikipedia in your language exists, do not add pages in that language to MediaWiki.org!''' This wiki is not the place for language advocacy - please go through the correct channels, and once your language has a Wikipedia then please return to add content here.
<!--
 
=== # ===
 
This template automatically categorizes templates by number by default, but for some reason the parser functions do not work exactly right when using the "sections" option, as such the number override has to be used.

=== Category void ===
+
== Example ==
Some templates such as the [[Template:User blank|blank]] series and other fictional languages do not deserve to have their own category, to void the category all together do this:
 
  
<nowiki>{{languages|Spoken|blank|catvoid=}}</nowiki>
+
Here is how the language bar looks on the [[MediaWiki]] page:
 
+
{{Languages|MediaWiki}}
=== Format ===
 
If all of these functions were used on one template they would look like this:
 
 
 
<nowiki>{{languages|English|en|langvoid=|catvoid=|catalt=en|sections=us|#=N}}</nowiki>
 
 
 
Please note catalt, sections and # cannot exist if catvoid exists.

Syntax

{{Languages|PageName}}
  • PageName (optional) - the name of the page to display language links for. If omitted then the English version of the current page is used. This parameter can normally be omitted, as it is only required if you want to link to a page other than the one you place the template on, which is very uncommon. If this parameter is used on a sub-page make sure you supply the root name, not the full page name (e.g. on MediaWiki/fr you would need to use {{Languages|MediaWiki}} and not {{Languages|MediaWiki/fr}}).

Usage

The template should only be placed on pages that exist in more than one language, and it should be placed in the same location on each translation of the page.

The English version of a page is always the main version, with all other languages as sub-pages, named using the appropriate language code (see below).

For example, on the Main Page you would include the text {{Languages}}, both on Main Page itself, and on each of its language sub-pages. The template automatically creates links to any language sub-pages that exist, e.g. Main Page/ja, Main Page/fr, and ignores non-existant languages.

See Project:Language policy for further details about translating pages.

Supported languages

This shows you the name of each language's sub-page (using Main Page as an example). Other languages may be added easily as necessary. Please use the appropriate prefix, as used on Wikipedia when adding a new language. Please do not add languages for which no pages exist yet, as this will increase the time needed to include the template without adding any benefit (languages are only displayed to the user when the relevant page exists).

The link on the language names goes to the Wikipedia in that language. If no Wikipedia in your language exists, do not add pages in that language to MediaWiki.org! This wiki is not the place for language advocacy - please go through the correct channels, and once your language has a Wikipedia then please return to add content here.
