This page describes the current multi-lingual policy on

Language codes

Throughout you should use the language codes specified by the MediaWiki software when creating language-specific content (see Names.php for the full and up-to-date list).

Please also bear the following in mind:

  • If the language code is not found in Names.php then we should not host help pages in that language.
  • If you want to add a language that is not present, first get it added to the software and only add pages here once the changes have been accepted.
  • If Circopedia uses the 'incorrect' code for a language then you should also (for consistency) use that incorrect code here.
  • Note that some language codes in Names.php are now deprecated (e.g. zh-yue has been replaced with yue). In these cases only the most recent code should be used.
