Template talk:Language icon
Simplifying this template, improving translations
This template has a lot of fluff but also lacks flexibility in its tooltip texts. It could be trimmed down to only support icons used to flag links by language such as((de)) without arguments (this template only having a language code argument), also the the tooltip can be optimised to a single by getting rid of the Lego string colon and replacing with Mediawiki’s #language magic word.
Without Lego strings the tooltip can be rephrased, for instance this could appear on English-language pages as “in (language)”, “text in (language)” or “page in (language)” instead of “Language: German”.
- Given how frequently this template is used on a given page, can we remove all Minh Nguyễn 💬 12:26, 5 July 2019 (UTC) usage, since it has to get reevaluated once per transclusion? I think just the language name would be sufficient. For example, interlanguage links on Wikimedia sites display just the language name as the tooltip. –
- For some reason, there is no tooltip any more when using Wynndale In case you changed the input for this template, could you please also review all templates which transclude it? --Tigerfell (Let's talk) 17:34, 16 July 2019 (UTC) (en). @
