Only the text is switched out based on the user's interface, not the whole template (like with {{autotranslate}}) to avoid unnecessary complexity. There is no /lang page or /layout page to deal with. Keep in mind this is still a work in progress and new text fields may be added in the future.

Examples

The message box does not appear on semi-protected pages or upload-only protected files. An icon still appears in the top-right corner.
