Documentation This is a documentation subpage for Template:Babel.
It contains usage information, categories, and other content that is not part of the original template page.

This template is used to inform others of any languages you speak.

Usage

Add this template to your user page using {{Babel|ISO 639-1 code of a language|level of language understanding (see below)}}. The available ISO 639-1 codes to choose from are:

  • bs (Bosnian)
  • de (German)
  • en (English)
  • es (Spanish)
  • fr (French)
  • it (Italian)
  • ja (Japanese)
  • lt (Lithuanian)
  • nl (Dutch)
  • no (Norwegian)
  • pl (Polish)
  • pt (Portuguese)
  • ru (Russian)
  • zh (Chinese)

There are several levels you can use to indicate your understanding of a certain language:

  • 0: You do not understand the language at all. This is useful to indicate to people who might expect you to know the language that you do not know it at all. For example, it would be useful for someone who made some edits to the English RuneScape Players Wiki but did not understand English.
  • 1: You have a basic understanding of the language.
  • 2: You have an intermediate understanding of the language.
  • 3: You have an advanced understanding of the language.
  • No number: You have a native understanding of the language, including any idioms.

Every level except for level 0 adds you user page to a category (see Category:Users by language). To remove your user page from a category, you can use {{Babel|nocat=true}}.

Example=

For example, {{Babel|nocat=true|en|2}} gives:

en-2 This user has an intermediate level of English knowledge.

{{Babel|nocat=true|de}} displays

de-N Dieser Benutzer spricht Deutsch als Muttersprache.
