Usage

Lua error in Module:Lang/documentor_tool at line 29: attempt to index local 'content' (a nil value). Template {{tabla}} indicates to readers the original form of a term or phrase in [[error: unrecognized language tag:String Module Error: String subset index out of range language]]. The term or phrase is the only mandatory parameter. The text is formatted according to recommendations in Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Text formatting#Foreign terms (italics for Latin-script languages, regular for others).

The template should generally be placed after the English translation of the foreign term or phrase.

The parameter |links=no prevents the language name from being linked.

The parameter |translit= enables a transliteration (of the original text with the Latin alphabet) to be given. The templates that have this param are listed here. (This parameter is not supported by lang-x templates for languages that are already written in Latin script.)

The parameter |lit= enables a literal translation (in English) to be given. It is being rolled out to these templates and so may be available for {{tabla}}.
