{{Babel}} is for showing the languages that you know, as well as the operating system, keyboard layout, web browser, desktop environment, and text editor that you are most comfortable with. Details of how to use it for its original purpose -- showing the languages that you know -- are at Wikipedia:Babel.




Parameters can be added using the {{!}} trick.

The Babel box prefixes its arguments with "User ", so it will work with the User: namespace. For example, this would include the Template:Wp/khw/temt user box:

{{Babel|<box1>|<box2>|:Urhixidur/Userboxes/Asteroid|<box 4>|...}}

Custom styling


To customize the appearance you can add the optional parameters header=HEADER (default: Wikipedia:Babel), footer=FOOTER (default: Search user languages), bordercolor=BORDERCOLOR (default: #99B3FF), color=COLOR (default: white), textcolor=TEXTCOLOR (default: black), left=Left margin (default: 1), bottom=Bottom margin (default: 0.5), solid=Solid border width (default: 1), width=Box width (default: 248), and/or extra-css=<any other formatting>. Call the '!' userbox to start a new column after that point or the '-' userbox to insert a blank row. You may also use '|align=left' to display the babel box on the left side of the screen rather than the default right.

Example: {{Babel|align=left|color=yellow|en|fr-3|de-4|!|tl-1|ru-2|:UBX/1337|nocat=true}} produces:

Use on other wikis


The page you are now reading is the /doc subpage for the actual Babel template. If you click "edit this page", you will see a bunch of computer code that makes the Babel boxes work. What you're now reading is just documentation for that code, transcluded inside "<noinclude>" tags so it doesn't interfere with the computer code.

In order to have Babel boxes on another Wikimedia project, just copy this page to that project. Click "view source" and copy all the contents, including the computer code. Create a page called "Template:Babel" on the other Wikimedia project and put the content into it.

You also need to copy over a bunch of files with names like "Template:User en", "Template:User en-1", "Template:User fr", etc. etc. Once you've done that, users can put e.g. "{{Babel|en-1|fr}}" on their user page and the Babel boxes will be displayed.
