Map internationalization launched everywhere—and embedded maps now live on 276 Wikipedias[edit]

As of today, interactive (Kartographer) maps no longer display in the language of the territory mapped; instead, you’ll read them in the content language of the wiki where they appear—or in the language their authors specify (subject to availability of multilingual data). In addition, mapframe, the feature that automatically embeds dynamic maps right on a wiki page, is now live on most Wikipedias that lacked the feature. (Not included in the mapframe launch are nine Wikipedias that use the stricter version of Flagged Revisions).

If you you’re new to mapframe, this Kartographer help page shows how to get started putting dynamic maps on your pages.  If you’d like to read more about map internationalization: this Special Update explains the feature and its limitations; this post and this one describe the uses of the new parameter, lang=”xx”, which  lets you specify a map’s language. And here are some example maps, to illustrate the new capabilities.

These features could not have been created without the generous programming contributions and advice of map-loving volunteers, including Yurik, framawiki, Naveenpf, TheDJ, Milu92, Atsirlin, Evad37, Pigsonthewing, Mike Peel, eranroz, Gareth and Abbe98. My apologies to anyone I’ve missed.

The Collaboration team's Map Improvements 2018 project wraps up at the end of June, so please give internationalized maps and mapframe a try soon and give us your feedback on the project talk page. We’re listening. —JMatazzoni (WMF) (talk) 20:59, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Usage of a template[edit]

I would like to know whether the template Template:Worldimagemap be used on wikis in Incubator or not. The problem lies in this page of Incubator. Please guide me in solving this issue. Adithyak1997 (talk) 18:09, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

@Adithyak1997: Noone can guide in solving an issue because you did not describe any issue or problem. This is basically "My car does not work correctly, I will not give you any further details but please tell me on the phone how I can fix my car myself." --Malyacko (talk) 08:54, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
@Malyacko: Sorry for the problem caused. I have copy pasted the data of the specific template page (named Template:Worldimagemap) from English version of Wikivoyage to its Malayalam version which is currently present in Incubator. After copy pasting the data and saving the template, it showed the error Invalid title at line 5. Also, the world map is not displaying. Adithyak1997 (talk) 10:57, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
@Adithyak1997: Please add links which might increase chances that someone may take a look. I won't try to find some Malayalam version of some template on some Incubator when you likely have a link handy... --Malyacko (talk) 09:24, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
Ah, wait, sorry, this is and it is not showing a map and the links are broken and the error shown in "Error: Invalid title in link at line 5."? Where to find an imagemap template on Incubator which works as expected? --Malyacko (talk) 09:28, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
