multi-language descriptions

Would it be possible to implement a somehow i18n-capable description system, or is there already any scheme for tagging multi-language descriptions? I was thinking about something similar to the multi-language descriptions of images in wikimedia commons:

description="en|off-road vehicles only;de|nur für Geländefahrzeuge"

answering myself: Proposed features/Description#Notes: lists this feature in the form of description:en="off-road vehicles only" description:de="nur für Geländewagen" --Ulf Mehlig 12:33, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Descriptions for disabled persons

I am using:

These combinations will soon be rendered on BliViMap. --Lulu-Ann 10:37, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Hierarchic namespace for description-like tags?

I found mtb:description=* more or less by accident.. are there more such tags? Found whitewater:description.

I think it would make sense to have something like

  • outdoor:hiking:description
  • outdoor:swimming:description
  • etc

to help extracting and displaying such information? RicoZ (talk) 13:40, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
