Translation[edit]

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)[edit]

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}}}
