Language versions[edit]

Links to different language versions are normally done by adding the language code, before or after the project code.

[[s:de:Hauptseite]] [[s:de:Hauptseite]]
[[:en:b:Main page]] [[:en:b:Main page]]

If the project code is omitted, Wikipedia is used as the target.

[[:fr:]] [[:fr:]]
[[:os:]] [[:os:]]

These links, when used without the leading colon (i.e. [[fr:]], [[os:]]) add links to Wikipedia into the lefthand toolbar, and do not appear within the page. See more at Help:Interlanguage links and at Category:Interwiki link templates.
