This user language template renders the appropriate specific language 'babel' user-box (examples shown right); as used in individual user pages of those who identify their spoken language(s), along with any 'parent' category and its associated sub-categories of category: Wiki People by Language. This template has two (2) input requirements – immediately after {{Language| . . ..

  • 1stISO 639 code – the two- (or three-) letter ISO 639 language code;
  • 2ndlevel – 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or N (for 'native').


{{Language|ISO 639 code|level=?}}
Where . . .

  • ISO 639 code — the two-or-three letter language code, and;
  • level=? — a number or letter indicating how well the language is spoken:
    • 0 — not able to speak
    • 1 — basic
    • 2 — intermediate
    • 3 — advanced
    • 4 — near native
    • 5 — professional
    • N — native

Find code

The English Wikipedia has articles on the ISO 639 language codes. To find the specific code for a language, see the list of ISO 639-1 codes; and in the table of languages, look at the column saying 639-1. If the language you seek is not there, see Wikipedia: List of ISO 639-2 codes, and look at the Alpha-3 column. If it still is not there, look at the ISO 639-3 codes list, and click a letter. Finally, if it is not there yet, write the name of the required languages in English. You may also ask someone.


All main language categories can be found at category: Wiki People by Language, and all sub-categories can be found at Category:LanguageSpeakers (#), where Language is the anglicised name of a language, and # is a number between 0–5 or an N.
