This template employs intricate features of template syntax.
You are encouraged to familiarise yourself with its setup and parser functions before editing the template.

This documentation is transcluded from Template:Infobox Bible Translations/doc (edit | history)

The infobox on this page is for including on each/every page of a Bible translation. Most of the parameters are optional: these are marked "†". You should see the talk page for examples.

To see examples of actual usage on Bible translation pages see What links here


Almost all the parameters are optional:

Test on a minimalist usage

This test is to see what gets displayed when almost none of the infobox is filled in. The idea here is that all the compulsory fields should be displayed, and all the optional fields should not be displayed

Full name: {{{full_name}}}

Test of the infobox on a fictitious translation:

This test is simply to try out ALL of the fields without worrying about factual accuracy (note that it has both "published", "NT_published", and "OT_published", where "published" is for translations which did not publish OT and NT separately).
