Template:link language/doc

From MattWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This template is used to indicate to readers that an external link is in a foreign language.

It should generally be placed after the external link, although this is not set in stone; for more information, see the Manual of Style. English is the default language, and does not need to be noted using this template, unless there is a reason the reader would assume the link to be in a foreign language (e.g. a foreign title).

For citations, the language parameter of the various citation templates ({{cite web}}, {{cite news}}, {{cite journal}}, etc.) should be used instead.

Usage

{{link language|<language code>}}

Language codes: ISO 3166-1.

Example

{{link language|fr}} produces: (French)
