Babel is a project originating on Wikipedia which helps users indicate what languages they speak and to what level.

Unfortunately one can only add Babel userboxes using the source editor.

To search for Coasterpedians based on language profficiency, use Category:Users by language.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Syntax[edit | edit source]

For a list of two-letter language codes, see wikipedia:List of ISO 639-1 codes.

The babel code is added to your user page. Syntax is as follows:

 {{#babel: babelcode1 | babelcode2 | ... }}

Where babelcode is the two-letter language code, optionally followed by a number to indicate profficiency.
