Template talk:cmn-zh-p

Example of usage[edit]

Can be used if fantizi and jiantizi are identical, so only one word in hanzi is needed and pinyin in brackets.

{{zh-zh-p|北京|Běijīng}} produces: trad. and simpl. 北京 (pinyin: Běijīng)

Ditto "zh-tsp" above, bad template, a number of pages need cleanup. Robert Ullmann 13:25, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

keep What is wrong with it? And where do you see the word "Chinese" in it and the other template you nominated for deletion? This could be used for etymology, explaing and making sure users know that both traditional and simplified are identical.
It makes Wiktionary harder to use, for newcomers (who need to learn a new template), for data-miners (who must write special code to extract these translations), for readers (who need to recognise the non-standard format), and for experienced editors (who need to remember that the templates exist), and any tools they use (which must be programmed to work around them). In an ideal world, everything would have totally standardised wikitext, making everyone's life simple (and while I acknowledge this is never going to be achieved, there's no harm in trying).

Also, please don't go changing * Chinese for * Mandarin, the current compromise is nested * Chinese ** Mandarin, as per beer parlour discussion. The templates have nothing to do with Chinese vs Mandarin or Chinese Mandarin. Anatoli 23:36, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
