Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

__NOTOC__
== Goal ==
This template will show texts in different languages depending on the language of the page it is placed on. It is mainly meant for use in templates.
It is mainly meant for translation of contents within templates so that a single template can be used in pages of different languages, rather than having to be translated with one template for each language.
The language the text will be shown in depends on the two letter language code between the page namespace and the page title, for example [[Talk:De/HB Radio-NAV|Talk:'''De'''/HB Radio-NAV]]. If a parameter with a text is not available in the language of the page or is empty, the English text will be shown instead provided it is available.
== Usage ==
The parameters of this template corresponds to the ISO 639-1 two letter language code for the language to be used in that parameter.
 
For testing and demonstration purposes the named parameter '''lang=''' can be used to select a different language than the language of the page the template is used on.
<pre>
{{LangSwitch |de= |en= |es= |fr= |nl= |ru= |lang=}}
</pre>
|nl =
|ru =
|lang =
}}
</pre>
 
=== Using the lang parameter ===
For testing and demonstration purposes the the '''lang ''' parameter can be used to override the automatic language selection.

{{LangSwitch
|de = Hallo Welt!
|en = Hello World!
|es = ¡Hola Mundo!
|fr = Bonjour tout le monde!
|nl = Hello World!
|ru = Привет мир!
|lang = fr
}}
