This documentation is transcluded from Template:Please Translate/doc.

Formatting template used to mark strings of text which need to be translated. Intended for use on template subpages when new label parameter is added. For example after adding "Linkback label = Link back to Creator infobox template" to template:Creator/en, "Linkback label = {{Please Translate|Link back to Creator infobox template|Creator|{{subst:SUBPAGENAME}}}}" was added to all other language specific subpages of {{Creator}}.

The template automatically sets the following categories: Category:Internationalization templates with incorrect translations


{{Please Translate |1= |2= |3= |silent= |demo= }}

{{Please Translate|text|Creator|pl}} will be shown as: text

Template parameters

Parameter Description Default Status
1 text to be translated (usually in English) empty required
2 template name on which subpage the text to be translated resides empty required
3 language code empty required
silent silent=yes turns on silent mode, when parent template is tagged but text from parameter {{{1}}} is not shown. Useful if we already have some text in correct language which no longer match the master version (usually in English). Then we can leave the old text and use Please translate template to tag the master template as having labels in need of attention. empty optional
demo demo=yes prevents categorization, e.g. for use in the default of a {{langswitch}} (so no incorrect translation exists). Warning do not use demo if there are any other uses of Please Translate in the same page, as it may cause categorization to fail. empty optional
