Description emddudley 2006-04-10 23:51:34 UTC
I'm filing a bug in response to a post on the English Village Pump (technical):

----
The problen arised in [[Hebrew Wikipedia]], but they couldn't answer, so I am
trying here.

I was editing [[:he:בוש]], which conesponds to [[Bush]], but also [[Bosh]],
[[Bausch]] etc. due to the nature of [[Hebrew]]. If I add (in Hebrew Wiki)
[[:en:Bush]] and [[:en:Bosh]], I will get twice "English", on the sidebar. Is
there a way to get a different result (such as "English-Bosh" , "English-Bush")?
The question is probably also relevent for [[Arabic]] and similar languages.

Perhaps it would be nice to add support for custom interlanguage link text, such
as [[en:Bush|English (Bush)]]? This might not be appropriate on Wikipedia, but
it could be handy for others downloading Mediawiki.

The only related bug I could find was #5231.

Currently the request doesn't make sense for Wikipedia, because with Wikidata the second interlanguage link is ignored, see bug 43671. This bug was meant mainly for non-Wikipedia or even non-Wikimedia wikis but I'm not sure of the use case validity here...
