Please give some details how the bot works. --Schlurcher (talk) 20:28, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
The script should take articles from pre definied Wikipedia categories, query the interlanguage links for each article and create a multilanguage tag-template for it (or update the existings template) on commons. For the first moment it shall create toponyms for:
  • all Countries
  • all Capitals
Maybe later: Institutions (like museums) and people names (still somwhat unclear as of today).
