The following documentation is located at Template:wikimedia language/documentation. [edit]


Until https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8217 is fixed there is a mis-match between the codes used by ISO 639, and those used by Wikimedia, for certain languages. This template maps between the two.

  • nan = zh-min-nan (Min Nan)
  • nb = no (Norwegian Bokmål)
  • vro = fiu-vro (Võro)
  • cmn = zh (Mandarin)
  • lzh = zh-classical (Literary Chinese)
  • yue = zh-yue (Cantonese)
  • rup = roa-rup (Aromanian)
  • roa-nor = nrm (Norman)
  • roa-tar = roa-tara (Tarantino)
  • kmr = ku (Northern Kurdish)
  • sgs = bat-smg (Samogitian)
  • nds-de = nds (German Low German → Low German)
  • bua = bxr (Buryat)
  • egl and rgn = eml (Emilian and Romagnol share a Wikipedia using an exceptional code)
  • zza and kiu = diq (Northern and Southern Zazaki share a Wikipedia using Southern Zazaki's code)
