This is the documentation page for Module:Language/data/ISO 639-3
|This module is rated as ready for general use. It has reached a mature form and is thought to be bug-free and ready for use wherever appropriate. It is ready to mention on help pages and other MetaWiki resources as an option for new users to learn. To reduce server load and bad output, it should be improved by sandbox testing rather than repeated trial-and-error editing.|
This module contains data taken directly from a local copy of an iso-639-3_Name_Index_YYYYMMDD.tab file from sil.org.
The table in this module was created using w:Module:Language/data/ISO 639-3/make. There should be no need to hand edit this table, so please do not do so except to reflect changes that are actually present in the source (in which case it is probably better to re-run the extraction tool on a new data file).
|Hint: to avoid browsers interfering with how UTF-8 characters are rendered, consider downloading the zip file of the complete set of tables. Extract iso-639-3_Name_Index_YYYYMMDD.tab (where YYYYMMDD is the date of the release) to your local machine and open that file with a good text editor (w:Notepad++ has worked well for this).|
