Usage

{{Language with name/for}} (or {{Langnf}} for short) is a template used to indicate to readers that the previous term or phrase is from a non-English or foreign language, providing a translation of the non-English term.

Parameters

There are five parameters, three numbered:

  1. passed as the language name only when rtl is selected
  2. the foreign language
  3. the foreign language term or phrase

and two named:

  • links set to no when the language is not to be wiki-linked
  • rtl which indicates a right-to-left script

It should generally be placed after the non-English term or phrase, and contain the English translation of the term or phrase.
