This page defines text used by Module:Convert. All documentation (from Module:Convert/doc) is at that module. The text includes messages and categories output by the module, and parameters used as input.

This is a separate module to simplify translation for use on another wiki. For example, see translation_table and the other tables in bn:Module:Convert/text.

Any changes should first be tested at Module:Convert/text/sandbox—see Module:Convert/sandbox/testcases.
