All The Tropes:Babel

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search


This page shows how to add the Babel extension capability to show what user languages a troper speaks. It will create its own userbox table, and it is recommended all of the languages a troper will be using this extension markup for be grouped into the same line as explained below:

  • Start off with {{#babel:xx}}.
  • Next add one of the following codes for each language you speak or understand, separated by | (another vertical bar), where xx should be replaced by the code for that language. The general usage of each code level is as follows:
    • xx-0 if you cannot understand the language at all. Do not use it for every language that you don't know, but only when there is some reason why you might be expected to know it. For example, one may be of Italian descent, but does not speak the Italian language, or if one is Canadian but does not speak French.
    • xx-1 for basic ability - enough to understand written material or simple questions in this language.
    • xx-2 for intermediate ability - enough for editing or discussions.
    • xx-3 for advanced level - though you can write in this language with no problem, some small errors might occur.
    • xx-4 for 'near-native' level - although it's not your first language from birth, your ability is something like that of a native speaker.
    • xx-5 for Professional level speaking - has a speaking proficiency equivalent to that of an educated native speaker.
    • xx-N for native-born speakers who use a language every day and have a thorough grasp of it, including colloquialisms and idioms.
