Usage

Template {{lang-x}} indicates to readers the original form of a term or phrase in a foreign language. The term or phrase is the only mandatory parameter.

The template should generally be placed after the English translation of the foreign term or phrase.

The parameter |links=no prevents the language name from being linked.

The parameter |lit= enables a literal translation to be given. It is being rolled out to these templates and so may be available for {{lang-x}}.

Examples

The following examples show translations from German.
