The HTML form-select element is created by a JavaScript gadget

This template allows you to write descriptions in different languages, to display only the one set in the user preferences. It also allows you to select and display a different language using a form.

Usage

{{Multilingual description |xx= }}

Or use the shorthand {{Mld|… parameters as described …}}

For the creation of the form-select and folding of languages, JavaScript is required. This JavaScript is implemented as default gadget at Wikimedia Commons, namely “Language select”, and can be switched off amending the preferences. (Activate the LanguageSelect gadget now! // Disable the LanguageSelect gadget now!)

The gadget will also fold descriptions in multiple languages and create a form-select, if more than a threshold are written consecutively on a page using language templates like {{en}}, {{fr}}, {{es}}.
