Description Huji 2008-03-12 20:15:35 UTC
Different languages use different terms for ISBN. In Persian, شابک is used, and in Arabic, ردمك is used. It would be great if "ISBN" could be translated so a phrase like this would be linked on wikis with Persian content language:

شابک 964-000-000-1
Comment 1 Raimond Spekking 2008-06-19 07:28:41 UTC
I changed the summary to reflect that we have three hardcoded magic words: ISBN, RFC, PMID
Comment 2 Niklas Laxström 2008-07-04 10:00:22 UTC
Any comments on this? How about using wrapper templates for those? I don't like the idea of introducing more magic words of this kind.
Comment 3 Niklas Laxström 2009-01-25 09:29:27 UTC
I'm leaning to wontfix if nobody opposes. Plain-word magic words are competing in the same area of interwiki links and wrapper templates.
Comment 4 Siebrand Mazeland 2009-02-24 19:04:15 UTC
WONTFIX per comment 3 and the absence of objections.
