The content language object is the Language object associated with the wiki being viewed. It is one of two global language objects ($wgLang is the other). Language objects represent the language used for incidental text, and also has some character encoding functions and other locale stuff. The language is defined in $wgLanguageCode .

If you are outputting text that might be included in an interface message, you may want to use $parser->getFunctionLang() instead of $wgContLang since this will localize to the user's interface language within interface messages, but localize to the wiki content language otherwise.
Wersja MediaWiki:

Starting with MediaWiki 1.32, the content language is available as the ContentLanguage service (MediaWiki\MediaWikiServices::getContentLanguage) and usage of the service is recommended over using the global.
