Is there a way that we could have the "In other languages" text be a variable, and if an FHC, have a parameter make it say: "See center resources and services in:" instead? We are working on the pages for countries who speak other languages and so will just put a few details, then link to the page in that language, see https://wiki.familysearch.org/en/User:Ccsmith/Sandbox janellv 04:56, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Most anything is possible. However, whether it is really practical or really needed may be up for discussion. The way this template is done is that it works perfectly no matter which language the use is displaying in without any translation. Also, it provides consistency for all pages and languages. It would seem to me that "See center resources..." would really be redundant with "In other languages" as they both would go to the same page in another language. Anyway, that is my opinion at this time. Consistency and language agnostic are both very nice and important. Thomas_Lerman 05:19, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
I think it is needed. Take a look at what is being done on this page - Bahia Blanca Argentina Villa Mitre Punta Alta Family History Center. See the link from the English page of the FHC to the Spanish page of the FHC? The idea was that the phrase "See center resources in:" would explain that there is more information on the page in that native language page. This variable wouldn't be used elsewhere except for on these center pages, and it's not redundant if you remove the "In other languages" phrase. Another option is to have a variable like "For additional information:" to show that the page in the other language will be more complete than the page in English. That one could have more widespread use than just on the center pages. The phrase "In other languages:" makes it seem like the pages are going to be equal in both languages. janellv 15:36, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
