Wikidocumentaries is multilingual. The user interface language can be changed to any available language. The UI languages are translated in TranslateWiki.net.

It is also possible to view only the article in another language. The article language menu will display the user's available languages and a link to all available languages. See Article.

  • If the topic exists in Wikidata, the articles generally exist in different language Wikipedias.
  • If the topic exists in Wikidocumentaries, the articles generally exist in Wikidocumentaries.

Fallback logic

UI language

  1. The UI language must be one of the available translated UI languages
  2. The default language is the browser language
  3. The user may change the UI language
  4. If the preference is not available, the best option in the user-defined language fallback chain is used.
  5. English is used as the ultimate fallback option.

Topic title and description, map labels, Wikidata entries?

  1. UI language
  2. Topic's original language
  3. Best option in the user-defined language fallback chain. The fallback chain is initially a hard-coded list of languages. Later on, the user may construct this list.
  4. English
  5. Any language ordered by...

Search term for images

  • Topic title and aliases
    • API service's preferred language
    • Topic's original language (how is this reasoned?)
