Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Use this template to tag articles that are written in a foreign language, where the article does not already exist on a foreign Wikipedia project. If the article already exists on a foreign Wikipedia, then use {{Db-a2}} or {{Db-foreign}} instead. See speedy deletion criterion WP:A2.

{{Not English}} will categorise tagged articles into Category:Wikipedia articles needing translation. All articles tagged should also have their entry manually added to Wikipedia:Pages needing translation into English.

This template is for use on articles. It should not be used for drafts.


{{Not English|language|article or section|listed=yes/no}}
  • language: (Optional) The name of the language that requires translation (e.g. "French" or "Mexican Spanish"). If omitted, it is assumed that the language is unknown.
  • article or section: (Optional) A description of which part of an article needs translating (e.g. "Hungarian names").
    • If the literal text "section" is specified, the template should be placed at the top of the section requiring translation. If omitted, "article" is assumed if page is in the article namespace, and "page" is assumed in all other namespaces.
  • listed=yes/no: (Optional) If set to listed=yes (or "Yes", "YeS", "Y", "y", "1"), will hide the message requiring you to add the page to the list of pages needing translation into English.

If the language is recognised as being suitable for translation by Google Translate, a link will be added within the page transcluding the template.
