This template is used in the "date" parameter of the {{Information}} template to render the words "Taken in" in the language specified in the user's preferences. It is meant to differentiate between from {{Taken on}} in that the English languages distinguishes between the two terms: a photograph is "taken on" an exact day, date, or week, but is "taken in" a longer period of time, e.g., a week, month, season, year, or longer.
