Wikivoyage:Inter-language links

From Wikivoyage
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The MediaWiki software we use for Wikivoyage has features for making links between articles in the different language versions of Wikivoyage. These are called inter-language links.

Making inter-language links[edit]

Wikivoyage now uses Wikidata to make links between articles that cover the same subject in different languages. For more information, see w:en:Wikipedia:Wikidata.

Different subject[edit]

You can link to a page on a different subject using this syntax:

[[:language code:article title]]

Note the colon (":") at the beginning of the link. This makes the link appear in-line in the article text.

Inline links to other Wikivoyage language versions are rarely helpful to travelers, and should be avoided for destination guides and other articles in the main namespace. However, they can be useful for talk pages or other places we discuss how to make the guide.
