This documentation is transcluded from Template:NationAndOccupation/doc.

Translates a person’s nationality and profession into user’s preferred language. The template takes care for the right word order: {{NationAndOccupation|m|FR|painter|poet}} gives “French painter and poet”, if the user’s preferred language is set to English, but “pintor y poeta francés”, if the language is set to Spanish. This is especially useful with the “Description” field of {{Creator}} templates.


{{NationAndOccupation |1= |2= |3= }}
