Usage

Transcluded by "lang-xx" templates. Do not use directly.

{{Language with name and transliteration
| 1 = <!-- language code -->
| 2 = <!-- language name -->
| 3 = <!-- text input -->
| translit = <!-- also |4= -->
| lit = <!-- also |5=; literal translation -->
| script = <!-- overrides |2= in [[Romanization of <script>]] -->
| link = <!-- also |links=; whether to wikilink the language name -->
| rtl = <!-- see below -->
}}

Right-to-left

For languages written right-to-left, like Arabic, Hebrew and other, it is advised to set |rtl={{rtl}} in the language template (lang-ar, lang-he).

This adds the character U+200F RIGHT-TO-LEFT MARK (HTML &#8207; · &rlm;) to the end of the string (the righthand side, in memory). It is an invisible formatting character, that terminates the R-to-L text. After this, (that is, directly after & outside of the template), all following text is initiated to be left-to-right (English) again.
