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

This template creates a soft redirect to Wiktionary.

Do not place it on every possible word. Soft redirects to Wiktionary are to dictionary definitions, and generally Wikipedia is not a dictionary.

Only use it when:

  • There is no scope for a Wikipedia article at this title, and
  • There is no other Wikipedia page to which this would be an appropriate redirect, and
  • There is a relevant entry in Wiktionary, and
  • Readers search for it on Wikipedia.

This template is a self-reference and so is part of the Wikipedia project rather than the encyclopaedic content.

Usually, you should not use Wikipedia:Substitution with this template.


You can use {{longcomment}} to prevent a page thus redirected from being listed on Special:Shortpages.

{{Wiktionary redirect}} {{subst:longcomment}} 
Provides a soft redirect to the Wiktionary page, using the current page's name, but the first letter is turned to lower case. Check if the case is appropriate.
{{wtr|sophisticated}} {{subst:longcomment}} 
Pass a parameter to specify the link target.
{{wtr|Category:English idioms|many=yes}} 
Pass "many=yes" to link to lists or categories on Wiktionary.
