atj and mic[edit]

Can you add atj and mic languages please. I already added a translation in those languages. Thanks, Amqui (talk) 19:57, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

 Done, but both suffer from #language problem. Koumz (talk) 14:01, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Bug with #language[edit]

Hello, are there any news about the #language problem with prevent to display the new languages which are added? This bug exists for 2 years and I saw no amelioration. Is Scribunto is available on species? Maybe we can rewrite the template using lua. Pamputt (talk) 11:18, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

I have no information on this. Koumz (talk) 14:01, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Can you, please, add Luo language (ISO 639-3: luo)? I have a lot of vernacular names in Luo for animals and plants. --Omondi (talk) 13:46, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

@Omondi: There is no Template:Luo up to now. (see for example Template:fr) --Murma174 (talk) 02:46, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
 Done@Omondi and Murma74: I dunno if such a template was needed in 2016, but it is no longer so. Circeus (talk) 03:46, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

Has the ISO 639-3 code esu. Thanks! Umimmak (talk) 15:12, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

{{Editprotected}} Hi can you add Sylheti language? Its iso code is syl. Its native name is ꠍꠤꠟꠐꠤ Msasag (talk) 16:07, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

 Done @Msasag: by Tommy Kronkvist Circeus (talk) 03:58, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

ja, zh and zh-han[edit]

Kindly add ja (Japanese) and zh (Chinese). In case if you accept variants, zh-han at least would be handy. Thank you in advance. —Omotecho (talk) 02:12, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done @Omotecho: The template already caters for ja, zh-classical, zh-hans, zh-hant, zh-min-nan, zh-tw, zh-yue and zh. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 17:33, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
Case closed. Thank you for your reply, Andy. --Omotecho (talk) 17:46, 3 September 2019 (UTC)


Request to add kxd (Brunei Malay) language. Thank you. Zulfadli51 (talk) 14:10, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

 Done @Zulfadli51: Please will you test it? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 17:29, 3 September 2019 (UTC)


Just seen Gryllotalpa gryllotalpa. Some languages names are capitalized, some are not. Can it be normalised. -- 14:51, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

I think it's okay now, per the Help:Contents guideline. However please note that (contrary to the other languages) English vernacular names should use "Title Caps" rather than "Sentence caps", and that all German proper nouns should always be capitalised (whether part of a vernacular name or not). –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 18:24, 12 September 2019 (UTC).

Collapsible lists for better legibility[edit]

I suggest we make the "Vernacular names" sections collapsible/expandable so that they wont take up as much space on taxon pages with a large number of vernacular names. See for example Columba livia and Passer domesticus where the "Vernacular names" sections takes up 70% of the pages, or more. Making this change only requires minute additions to the code, e.g. see the {{Nadi}} template.

Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 02:41, 25 November 2019 (UTC).

Agree, but maybe make it possible for the option to leave it uncollapsed? I don't think there is a way for it to trigger if more than X languages are used, but most uses probably don't call for collpasing it. Circeus (talk) 05:38, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
