Specific information relating to this template[edit]

Add the template alone if the article needs Arabic script for an Arabic language name. If the article's subject name is in any of the languages listed in the syntax, add the corresponding parameter. The full syntax is as follows:

{{Arabic
|Persian=
|Urdu=
|Kurdish= 
|Malay=
|Azerbaijani=
|Pashto=
|Uyghur=
|Tajik=
|Kazakh=
|Swahili=
|Somali=
|Comorian=
|Chinese=
}}
  • language name= yes if the article pertains specifically to a specific language

To avoid needlessly cluttering up talk pages, it is usually appropriate to remove any unused parameters from the template.

You may also use the {{Persian}} template for Persian script requests.

Notes[edit]

While most of these languages use the Arabic alphabet only, some use the Arabic alphabet in certain areas only or have used the Arabic alphabet previously. Please note that:

Please do not tag articles unless you are sure that their subjects' names need the Arabic script (satisfying the conditions above).
