User language templates aid multilingual communication by making it easier to contact someone who speaks a certain language. The idea originated on the Wikimedia Commons and has also been implemented on Meta-Wiki and some of the Wikipedias, to varying extents. To participate, you can add the Babel template to your user page by following these instructions:

  • Start off with {{Babel|
  • Then add one of the following codes for each language you speak, separated by |, where xx is the ISO 639 code for the language:
    • xx-0 if you don't understand the language practically at all. You can use this if there's some reason why you might be expected to know the language better, or to indicate that you know something very little about it.
    • xx-1 for basic command (the ability to understand the language some and to ask or answer simple questions)
    • xx-2 ability to modify articles and to participate in discussions
    • xx-3 for advanced or fluent understanding (the ability to write articles in this language without difficulties, minor errors may occur)
    • xx-4 if you have a grasp of the language comparable to a native speaker, but are not a native speaker
    • xx if you're a native speaker
  • Then finish by adding closing braces: }}


Wiktionary:Babel
sv Den här användaren talar svenska som modersmål.
en-3 This user is able to contribute with an advanced level of English.
fr-2 Cet utilisateur peut contribuer avec un niveau moyen en français.
es-1 Este usuario puede contribuir con un nivel básico de español.
an-0 Iste usuario no repleca l'aragonés (u lo repleca con prou dificultá).

So, for example, {{Babel|en|de-1}} would indicate a native speaker of English with basic knowledge of German. {{Babel|sv|en-3|fr-2|es-1|an-0}} would indicate a native speaker of Swedish with an advanced knowledge of English, an intermediate knowledge of French, a basic knowledge of Spanish and no knowledge of Aragonese.

You can also add stand-alone language templates by following the {{User xx-1}} format.

These templates add you to the category associated with your level of understanding, and to the overall category for that language. To find someone who speaks a particular language, see user languages, and follow the links. For the most part, the two and three letter codes are taken from ISO 639, but see this list for a comprehensive guide.

You can help expand this system by creating templates for your language. Categories have already been created for most languages which have editions of Wikipedia containing over a hundred articles; they just need labelling up! It's recommended to copy the English or French versions when expanding the scheme, as most of the languages listed here are incomplete. See also Help:Creating a template.
