Interwiki requests Edit

I think it could be interesting to add a link to this page. --Cywil 20:48, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

Multilingual Wikia Edit

The link to is no use to most people since that page was deleted. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 00:08, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

english-french Edit

I have created two articles on religion-wiki:

  1. english version
  2. french version

How can i connect them? --Stud 2gym 09:03, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

If interwiki links are not yet enabled between the two, you can request this on w:Project:Interwiki requests. This help page (Interlanguage links) should provide you with some info about how to use these. The 888th Avatar (talk) 09:56, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Bots? Edit

Is there a bot that could be used to automatically add interlanguage links to other linked wikis? For example if Article A in French has links to German and English equivalents, then the bot would add German and French to the English wiki (and French and English to the German one). --xensyriaT 19:58, July 7, 2012 (UTC)

Not directly. The reasoning is because of the different languages themselves. Example: You want to make a wiki about Lights (in English) but in Spanish it would be called Luz (Spanish for light) an not be called Lights. So bots would not be effective if the Spanish creators used the Spanish names for the English words.
The bot would work on Games such as " World of Warcraft " as it is called this name in all languages.

Surely it could take the interlanguage article titles from other linked wikis... so if you enter all the interlanguage links to the English language article, then the bot would go to each of the foreign language articles linked to and add the same list of interlanguage links, but removing the link to the language of the wiki it's adding to and adding English (where it got the list from). This would save you having to edit each wiki yourself, and I'm sure would also find quite a few examples where people have only added one way interlanguage links. --xensyriaT 22:11, July 7, 2012 (UTC) EDIT: 22:12, July 7, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, a bot could start at the English site and then go to the foreign language site and add [[en:_Page name_]] to that foreign site so that it will link back to the English site. This will work because it has a link to follow and does not have to try to FIGURE out the foreign site's name. -- (M o r p h | C | T) 629 contributions and counting. 22:29, July 7, 2012 (UTC)

Suggestion to documentationEdit

Suggest to add example to link to wikidata and wikitionary (to english or to other language version)c933103 (talk) 06:03, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

Interlanguage image linking? Edit

Is there any way to use something similar to interlanguage links, but for images? For example, if an image has been uploaded to the English version of a wiki, can the Spanish version of that wiki use it? Or does every language of a wiki have to upload their own images?

Interlanguage link to a wiki without prefix Edit


I was wondering how one could create an interlanguage link from to the English version,

Is that even possible? Using e.g. [[en:Escape Pod]] on the Russian wiki only results in a "page that has not yet been created".

How can one fix this?

Create a request, and we can make it so that the pages will then link when you do that. Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)

Interlanguage links between two wikis with different domains Edit


I'm trying to add interlanguage links between two wikis, English and Spanish, from the same franchise but both happen to have different domains:

I can only add ILLs from the Spanish wiki to the English one (by adding [[en:PAGENAME]], or similar), but not from the English one to the Spanish one ([[es:PAGENAME]] doesn't work, it gives a red link). What would be the correct code in this case? Or is it even possible to add these type of links in this situation?

Thank you in advance.

Hi, this is due to the ILL cache, I've cleared the cache for the EN wiki, so it should work now, but you might need to purge the page first. --Little Red 07:19, February 17, 2020 (UTC)
Just tested it and it works now. Thank you very much for the quick reply. Have a nice day.
