Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Template:In lang is used to denote that a text source is written in a specific language.

For citations using a citation template ({{cite web}}, {{cite news}}, {{cite journal}}, etc.), that template's |language= parameter should be used instead.

To note a span of text in a different language, {{lang}} or one of the {{lang-x}} templates ({{lang-fr}}, {{lang-ast}}, etc.) should be used instead.

Usage[mali mi di yibu sheena n-niŋ]

Also finds use in External links sections to mark non-English link-targets:
