The UILangCode extension implements the {{UILANGCODE}} magic word to get interface language of the current user.

The extension can be retrieved directly from Git [?]:

  • Browse code
  • Some extensions have tags for stable releases.
  • Each branch is associated with a past MediaWiki release. There is also a "master" branch containing the latest alpha version (might require an alpha version of MediaWiki).

Extract the snapshot and place it in the extensions/UILangCode/ directory of your MediaWiki installation.

If you are familiar with Git and have shell access to your server, you can also obtain the extension as follows:

cd extensions/ git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/UILangCode.git


  • Die Erweiterung herunterladen und die Datei(en) in ein Verzeichnis namens UILangCode im Ordner extensions/ ablegen.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/UILangCode
  • Folgenden Code am Ende Ihrer LocalSettings.php -Datei hinzufügen:
    wfLoadExtension( 'UILangCode' );
  •   Done – Zu Special:Version in dem Wiki (bei Einstellung auf deutsch nach Spezial:Version) navigieren, um die erfolgreiche Installierung der Erweiterung zu überprüfen.



This will make the parser cache vary per user language, greatly decreasing hit rate and increasing storage.
