Babel is a method to view the languages Wikispecies users speak using "Babel" extension.


The Babel extension allows users to specify which languages they know and these parser function statements consist of two parts. The first part is the language code (sometimes with a number), the second a short explanation.

The language code consists of two or three letters ("en" for English, "nl" for Dutch, etc.) and sometimes a number.

  • xx (uden tal) betyder at denne person har sproget som deres modersmål.
  • xx-4 betyder at personen taler sproget flydende.
  • xx-3 betyder at personen taler sproget på et means that this person avanceret niveau.
  • xx-2 betyder at brugeren taler sproget på et let øvet niveau.
  • xx-4 betyder at personen taler sproget på et grundlæggende niveau.
  • xx-0 betyder at personen ikke taler sproget.
