Template:Languages

Categories: Language Resources | Member-Only Stickers | Stickers

Description

Used to display on your profile your level of understanding of languages. Variables are in the format xx-y, where xx is the ISO 639-1 code for the language, and y is a level from 0 to 4. The -y is left off for native understanding of a language (eg. {{Languages|en}} for a native speaker of English).

To add this sticker to a profile, place the string similar to the text in Code used: column of Examples table anywhere in the biography part of the profile. Usually you should put it next to the text describing a Sticker, but it should always be below the == Biography == heading and above the == Sources == heading.

This template is used on profiles of active WikiTreers to display their language abilities and help connect WikiTreers with others who share their language.

Please don't use {{Languages}} template by itself. Make sure you add the correct language parameter.

First parameter = xx is the ISO 639-1 code for the users native language.

Second parameter = users understanding of other languages:

xx (language only) - native fluency
xx-0 - do not understand (only include languages that it is important for others to know you do not understand, such as English or the language of a particular project)
xx-1 - basic
xx-2 - intermediate
xx-3 - advanced
xx-4 - near-native

You can replace those language codes with whichever ones are appropriate for you. The first example is for someone who is a native speaker of Slovenian, with a basic understanding of German.

The template can hold up to 10 languages.
