Language of user[edit]


For my user page, I want a variable that is the code of the language of the user, but y have only {{CUONTENTLANGUAGE}, that is the default language of the wiki, but I want the favourite language of the user. Do you know a variable ?

Thanks & Sincerely, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 08:43, 29 April 2019 (UTC).

Hello @Aabbccddeeffabcdef: {{LangSwitch}}. Example:
{{LangSwitch | en =I was born in [[en:1973|1973]], as [[en:Larry Page|Larry Page]]. | fr =Je suis né en [[fr:1973|1973]], comme [[fr:Larry Page|Larry Page]]. }}
Watch my Page. Regards. --Eihel (talk) 08:50, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
Good morning Eihel,
Thank you for the code.
Sincerely, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 08:53, 29 April 2019 (UTC).
Example more concrete Aabbccddeeffabcdef: Template:User_Small_Wiki_Monitoring_Team, with many translations. Can be used with {{#switch:{{int:lang}} ||||}}. Pages on other wikis are better documented (Media, enwiki, etc.). --Eihel (talk) 09:03, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
