Usage[edit source]

The language template Template:Tlf identifies Irish text. The term or phrase is the only mandatory parameter. The text is formatted according to recommendations in Template:Section link; italics for languages that use the Latin alphabet, normal for others.

The template should generally be placed after the English translation of the foreign term or phrase.

The parameter |links=no prevents the language name from being linked.

The parameter |translit= allows for a Romanization to be identified. The templates that have this parameter are listed here. (This parameter is not supported by lang-x templates for languages that are already written in Latin script.)

The parameter |lit= enables a literal translation (in English) to be given. It is being rolled out to these templates and so may be available for Template:Tlf.

Examples[edit source]

The following examples show translations from German.


  • Weimar is located in the federal state of Thuringia ({{Lang-de|Thüringen}}).
  • The Seafarers of Catan ({{Lang-de|Die Seefahrer von Catan}}) is an expansion of the board game The Settlers of Catan.
  • Albert the Bear ({{Lang-de|Albrecht der Bär|links=no}})
  • All Quiet on the Western Front ({{Lang-de|Im Westen nichts Neues|lit=In the West Nothing New}}) is a novel by Erich Maria Remarque.
