Template:Transl

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

The purpose of this template is to indicate that a span of text is transliterated from a particular language or writing system (language script), and, optionally, according to a specific transliteration scheme. It adds a tooltip label naming the scheme and normally renders the text in italics. It also invisibly tags it for web browsers, so that they may use a more appropriate font or screen readers to use a particular kind of pronunciation, and so on.

{{transl}} is is similar to {{lang}}, which tags non-transliterated text (written in original script). It often used alongside that template, to allow non-readers of the script to interpret the text.

For example, the following code tags a Ukrainian name and its transliteration according to the Ukrainian National scheme.

Markup Renders as
{{lang|uk|Ярослав Рудницький}} ({{transl|uk|ukrainian|Yaroslav Rudnytskyi}})

Ярослав Рудницький (Yaroslav Rudnytskyi)

Rationale

This template is intended to unify all "transliteration" templates, such as {{IAST}} and {{ISOtranslit}}. These templates are still usable, but they just transclude or are redirected back to {{transl}}. For example, (e.g. {{IAST|saṃskṛtam}} is a shortcut for {{transl|sa|IAST|saṃskṛtam}}; others like ArabDIN are handled natively by this template: {{transl|ar|DIN|...}}).

This template is kept separate from {{lang}} to address formatting issues (via css classes) and identification of transliteration schemes used. Ultimately, if these concerns are smartly addressed in the css file and/or in {{lang}}, using {{transl|xx|...}} should be equivalent to using {{lang|xx-Latn|...}}, viz. stating that the string is a Romanization by adding "-Latn" to the language code.[clarification needed]

Usage

There are two ways of using this template: with or without specifying the transliteration scheme used:

  • two parameters, with ISO 639 language code: {{transl|ar|al-Khwarizmi}} means that "al-Khwarizmi" is a transliteration from the Arabic in a loose or unspecified scheme.
  • two parameters, with ISO 15924 script code: {{transl|Ogam|MAQI}} means that "MAQI" transliterates an Ogham inscription without specifying the language. Potentially useful when writing systems themselves are under discussion, e.g. {{transl|Cyrl|š}}, not {{transl|cu|š}} or {{transl|ru|š}} when discussing the letter Ш.
  • three parameters, with ISO 639 language code: {{transl|ar|DIN|al-Ḫawārizmī}} / {{transl|ar|ALA|al-Khawārizmī}} the second parameter specifies the scheme used (DIN vs. ALA).
  • three parameters, with ISO 15924 script code: {{transl|Arab|DIN|Ḫ}} vs {{transl|Arab|ALA|Kh}} for ‎.

To suppress the default italicization of Latin scripts, add |italic=no. This parameter is useful for proper nouns, for example.

Transliteration scheme codes

Codes for supported transliteration schemes can be seen by viewing the source of Module:Lang/data — the translit_title_table data-structure lists for each such code the corresponding transliteration schemes. These may vary by language — e.g. code "ISO" means scheme ISO 233 for Arabic but ISO 11940 for Thai.

Examples

code:

  • {{transl|ar|[[al-Khwarizmi]]}} / [[DIN 31635]]: {{transl|ar|DIN|al-Ḫawārizmī}} / [[ISO 233]]: {{transl|ar|ISO|al-H̱awārizmī}} / [[ALA-LC Romanization|ALA]]: {{transl|ar|ALA|al-Khawārizmī}}
  • [[Royal Thai General System of Transcription|RTGS]]: {{transl|th|phasa thai}} / [[ISO 11940]]: {{transl|th|ISO|p̣hās̄ʹāthịy}}
  • {{cuneiform|[[Sumerian language|𒅴𒂠]]}} {{transl|sux|EME.GIR<sub>15</sub>}} / {{cuneiform|6|[[Hittite language|𒉈𒅆𒇷]]}} {{transl|hit|''ne-ši-li''}}

result:

ISO:

CSS

In order to apply a style to all text marked as transliteration, use a CSS selector that chooses all text with transliteration in the title attribute (tooltip). For instance, if you add the following to your common.css, all transliterations will be colored teal:

[title~=transliteration] { color: teal; }
