Template:I18n/Language Navigation Bar

This page lays out the sections that we would like to see in an ideal page. You should aim to get as many of the sections into your page as is practicable.

You should use the Toolbox page in conjunction with this.



An i18n language bar, using the supplied template


A two-cell table containing a header, laid out as
An image chosen as representing the application A brief description of the application's role


  • A brief feature list, under a heading, and consisting of bullet points
  • One or more heading giving more in-depth information about using the application
  • Screenshots to illustrate the above, whenever feasible. These will usually be thumbnails, clickable for enlargement.
Optional sections - sometimes easier added later
* A Hints and Tips section - short tips to increase productivity
* Either A short Troubleshooting section or a link to another page for Troubleshooting
  • A sentence including a link to any external Project Page


  • Links to any other useful internal or externals pages.

Finally, as the last item on the page, include a Category statement. The category will normally be the name of the Applications list that points to your page, e.g. applications listed under Applications/Office would show the statement [[Category:Office]]

Im-status-message-edit.png Note A double-Enter is required to make a new paragraph. Please do not use this after any heading, as those empty lines denote a new translation unit. Having the heading as one unit creates a lot of work for translators.
