This template can add a label to a wikilink to obtain a better readable link. We can use this to create this link:
[[Demotic (Egyptian)|Egyptian demotic]]

  • With label: [[{{ISO 15924/wp-name|Egyd}}{{ISO 15924/wp-name/label|Egyd}}]]Egyptian demotic

Current list

At is moment of writing, labels provided are:

| Egyd = Egyptian demotic
| Hrkt = Katakana or Hiragana
| Qaaa = ISO 15924
| Qabx = ISO 15924
| Syre = Syriac alphabet
| Syrj = Syriac alphabet
| Syrn = Syriac alphabet
| Zinh = ISO 15924
| Zxxx = ISO 15924
| Zyyy = ISO 15924
| Zzzz = ISO 15924


By default the pipe symbol is added when a label exists. Setting the option add pipe=no will return no pipe.

When no label is needed (the page name is good right away), the template returns a blank:

  • No label needed: [[{{tlx|ISO 15924/wp-name|Latn}}{{tlx|ISO 15924/wp-name/label|Latn}}]]Latin script

ISO updates

The ISO 15924 list of script codes is updated regularly, usually at least once a year. The current list is complete as of 15 November 2014, and defines 175 codes (code, number, script name).

Note: when resolving red links or wrong links, edit {{ISO 15924/wp-name}} or {{ISO 15924/wp-category}}. That is where the connection between ISO code and Wikipedia names is made.
