Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Usage[edit]

This template is a simplified wrapper around {{Google translation}}, specifically to translate articles from other language Wikipedias to English. As with {{Google translation}}, the template creates an external link to a Google Translate page, with the destination language set to English. Syntax:

{{Translate wikipedia|source language code|Title of source-language Wikipedia page to translate|link text}}

You must provide a source language and source page title, with the source page title being in the source language. The link text is optional, and defaults to:

Translate code:page title to English

For a list of available language codes, see the {{Google translation}} template page. Google's translation tool has a size limit that prevents it from translating long articles entirely. You may have to manually copy and paste sections of a long article into Google's translation tool page online.

Avoid using in articles[edit]

WP:EL#Non-English language content advises against linking to non-English content from articles in the English Wikipedia, but does not forbid it in all cases. Links to machine-translated pages from articles may lead to disputes with other editors, who may feel the quality of translation is insufficient to create a reliable source. Therefore, use your judgment, and check the quality of translation to make sure it is adequate to use as a source.

There should be no problem with using this template on non-article pages, such as talk pages, the Help desk, user pages, and so on. See the similar advice for template such as {{Google}}.
