Usage[change source]

The template {{Language with name/for}} (shortcut {{Langnf}}) provides a translation into English of a non-English term or phrase, and optionally links to the article on the foreign language.

Parameters[change source]

There are five parameters, three numbered:

  1. passed as the language name only when rtl is selected
  2. the foreign-language name
  3. the English translation of the term or phrase in question

and two named:

  • links set to no when the language is not to be wiki-linked

It should generally be placed after the non-English term or phrase, and contain the English translation of the term or phrase.
