The above is what this template creates if the name of this page was Template:En. When transcluded, {{PAGENAME}} is used to generate the name of the language either by using Template:x or a language specific template like the English one {{language}}. It's a quick way to add documentation to Template:c, specifically the language ones like {{es}} and {{de}} that use {{description}}. If a translation exists in the local language, this will be placed before the English version. See {{fr}} for an example.

Only the English and the local language's documentation (if exists) show up default. Up to 8 other translations can be added (these will be in the order specified underneath the local and English translations. For example: {{internationalization template doc|de|es|fr|ja|...}}

Add the following immediately after the template; do not start a new line:

<noinclude>{{internationalization template doc}}</noinclude>

This will also categorize the template into Category:Language templates and Category:Commons-ISO_code if it exists. The latter can be changed or removed using localcat= followed by one or more completely linked category, sortkey included, such as:

<noinclude>{{internationalization template doc|localcat=[[Category:Foo|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:Bar|{{PAGENAME}}]]}}</noinclude>

Adding translations

There's not much to translate here. Just copy and paste the following, translate the English parts, and save. It will create a template loop, but that's ok since they'll work right when called by this template (they shouldn't be used or viewed directly). There's no /lang page to edit. The 'inline' must stay the same, the "yes" can be whatever. Template:pre2

Current translation subpages:
Internationalization template doc/Internationalization template doc/deInternationalization template doc/eo
Internationalization template doc/esInternationalization template doc/frInternationalization template doc/nl
Internationalization template doc/zh-hant
