Critical Mass
Forum: Discussion & help Multi-language

I forward a message by User:Bahnpirat because this is a good way to make the wiki more multi-lingual with a template (Template:lang), hope this is o.k.:

I found a way for multi-languages at for critical mass. Template:KeyDescription at produce a link to translated pages. This works in the following way (example Key:railway):

  • english site is Key:railway
  • german site is De:Key:railway
The template checks if there is a site with cc:name. (two-letter-countrycode + sitename) I tried this at Berlin and De:Berlin. This does not work with other words as orginal article name. Bike and De:Fahrrad and Nl:fiets does not work! (not for automated template) But: Bike and De:Bike and Nl:Bike. --Bahnpirat 12:03, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

I also created a category multilingual so that pages in other languages can easily be found. --Diamant talk 18:35, 8 June 2008 (UTC)
