Template data
<templatedata>JSON</templatedata> ./. {{TemplateBox}}

TemplateData is a way to store information about template parameters (the description of those and of the whole template) for both humans and machines. It is used by VisualEditor and possibly other tools like Upload Wizard.

Existing template documentation
At Wikimedia Commons, it is recommended to use {{TemplateBox}} with either ‎useTemplateData=1 or ‎useTemplateData=only on the ‎/doc subpage and transcluding it with {{Documentation}} into the template. ‎<nowiki>-tags can be wrapped around the arguments, if required, to avoid templates being expanded.

Newly created template documentation and imports
Another option, especially for imported templates, or for users with JSON experience, is placing raw ‎<templatedata>-tags into the Wikitext of the template, as described in various Wikipediae.

There is an ongoing discussion about that matter. Feel invited to comment if you are experienced in either way, your time permits and if you like to share your opinion or to make a suggestion.

File name

If the names of the bitmap and vector files are identical except for the file extension, the first parameter may be left empty (see Autoreferencing templates).

Each parameter may, but does not need to, include the "File:" or "Image:" namespace prefix and/or the ".svg" file extension. Any other recognized extension will be replaced by ".svg".

The template will give an error message and add the maintenance category Vector version available/error if any of the specified files does not exist.

This template is localized through {{Autotranslate}}. The layout of the template can be found under Template:Vector version available/layout.

To add your language to the list of languages supported by this template, please copy the code of Template:Vector version available/en (or any other language version you prefer to translate) and replace the text strings in there (the form below can be used to create a translation, the English version is preloaded in the edit box). Please change the parameter lang from en (or whatever language you are translating) to the language code of your language.

For quick insert (and replace) you can use a user-script (the first highlighted line could be redundant):

var ns = mw.config.get('wgNamespaceNumber'), ti = mw.config.get('wgTitle');
if (ns === 14 || (ns === 6 && !/SVG/i.test(ti.slice(-3)))
    importScript('User:Perhelion/fixconverttosvg.js'); // Automatic CONVERT-TO-SVG tags:
