Description

In small Wikipedias, where our task force is reduced, we have lots of pages (mainly subtemplates and categories) that are not linked to items in Wikidata. Some of this items (for example, automatic taxonomy subtemplates) can be found in different languages but it's a very hard work to link by hand all of them. As most of them follow the same structure, and many of them have even the same name, maybe a bot could suggest links.
