Translation

To translate the "update needed" message, edit {{snippets/update needed}}.

Workaround if the translation contains an equal sign (because of URLs or custom HTML tags)

If the translation contains an equal sign, possibly inside an URL, it will cause the text to not show up (phab:T16235). To workaround that, use the following syntax: precede the language parameter with 1=, and the text parameter with 2=.

In the following examples, the first one won't display correctly because of the equal sign of the URL. The second one uses the workaround to fix the issue.

<div class="multilingual">
{{ls|en|Example URL: http://example.com/?p=1|label=no}}
{{ls|1=en|2=Example URL: http://example.com/?p=1|label=no}}
</div>
{{{2}}}
