Languages Bar

A languages bar has been provided using the Languages navigation template to make it easier for readers to see which translations are available for the current page and to navigate to those translated pages. The template also makes it easier for editors to link to translated pages from the original English page (and vice versa).

As you can see the languages bar can be added anywhere on a page however it is recommended that it is placed at the bottom of each page for consistency.


Language: English  • français • 日本語 • 한국어 • polski • русский

Usage

In order for the languages bar to function correctly each translated page must be created as a subpage of the original English page and the name of the subpage must be the language code, for example, "fr" for French.

Creating a subpage is done by adding a forward slash and the name of the subpage to the name of the parent page.

Parent_page/subpage

The languages bar can then be added to both the original English page and each of the translated pages. On the original English page the PageName parameter can be omitted so the following format is used:

{{Languages}}

On the translated page (regardless of language) the PageName parameter must be used to identify the original English page so the following format is used:

{{Languages|name-of-the-French-page}}

Example

The location for the Russian translation of this page is Project:Language_policy/ru. To display the language bar to this page we use {{Languages}} and to display the language bar (correctly) on the Russian version of this page we would use {{Languages|Project:Language_policy}}.

We do not use {{Languages|Project:Language_policy/ru}} as the links to the original English page and any other translated pages would not be generated.
