This documentation is transcluded from Template:Localized link/doc.

Shortcut: T:LocL


Purpose

This template can be used to link to translatable pages in the user's language. It uses the special page Special:MyLanguage, which checks if there is a translated version of a page in the user's language, and links to it if there is one, and links to the English version if there isn't.

It may be used in translated pages, so that they link to the right page even if there is no translated page in that language.

Usage

It is used in the same way normal wikilinks are used: One parameter to use the same link text as the page name, two parameters for different page name and link text.

Examples

Use Becomes
{{Localized link|Commons:Welcome}} Commons:Welcome
{{Localized link|Commons:Welcome|关于}} 关于

  • Template:Localized link/messagedoc – should be used for message documentation in translatable pages that use this template.
