Purpose[edit]

This template is used to show translatable templates in the language of the current page. Templates, like all other MediaWiki pages, can be translated using the Translate extension, which creates subpages with the form "pagename/language code". The template first checks if the name of the page contains a language code. If it does, it then checks if the template name given as a first parameter has a translation in that language. If the page name does not contain a language code, or if the navigation template doesn't exist in that language, it will display the English template.

How to use[edit]

  • {{Translatable template|name of template}}

or the shorter version:

  • {{TNT|name of template}}

The syntax will not work if the named template also needs to be transcluded in other translatable templates, because it would cause self-recursion of {{Translatable template}}
