Localization

To add your language to the list of languages supported by this template, please edit the template and add a row to the "{{LangSwitch|}}" construct. It takes the form "|xx= Your translation " (xx being the code of your language) Other date template supports at the moment: Danish, English, Estonian, German, Low German, Polish, Romanian, Spanish, and Swedish languages. Translations into other languages are needed. Since the template is protected new translations have to be added by administrators. Please use the talk page to request additions to the template. In case of large additions, like new language, the easiest way is to copy current {{Other date}} to {{Other date/sandbox}}, apply changes there and than request coping content of {{Other date/sandbox}} to {{Other date}}.
