Template adds interlanguage links (aka. interwiki links) to the categories which are linked to Wikidata category items.

The template automatically sets the following categories: Category:Interwiki from wikidata

Usage

{{Interwiki from wikidata}}

The following logic is used:

  • If the Wikidata category item has some sitelinks to Wikipedia categories those are used
  • If property "category's main topic (P301)" is used then the article item's QID is recovered
  • For Wikipedias without category interlanguage links, interlanguage links to Wikipedia articles are added

Template parameters

<templatedata>JSON</templatedata> ./. {{TemplateBox}}
TemplateData

TemplateData is a way to store information about template parameters (the description of those and of the whole template) for both humans and machines. It is used by VisualEditor and possibly other tools like Upload Wizard.


Existing template documentation
At Wikimedia Commons, it is recommended to use {{TemplateBox}} with either useTemplateData=1 or useTemplateData=only on the /doc subpage and transcluding it with {{Documentation}} into the template. <nowiki>-tags can be wrapped around the arguments, if required, to avoid templates being expanded.

Newly created template documentation and imports
Another option, especially for imported templates, or for users with JSON experience, is placing raw <templatedata>-tags into the Wikitext of the template, as described in various Wikipediae.

Discussion
There is an ongoing discussion about that matter. Feel invited to comment if you are experienced in either way, your time permits and if you like to share your opinion or to make a suggestion.
