Allow localization of the magic words ISBN, RFC, PMID
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Different languages use different terms for ISBN. In Persian, شابک is used, and in Arabic, ردمك is used. It would be great if "ISBN" could be translated so a phrase like this would be linked on wikis with Persian content language:

شابک 964-000-000-1

Version: 1.13.x
Severity: enhancement

I changed the summary to reflect that we have three hardcoded magic words: ISBN, RFC, PMID

Any comments on this? How about using wrapper templates for those? I don't like the idea of introducing more magic words of this kind.

I'm leaning to wontfix if nobody opposes. Plain-word magic words are competing in the same area of interwiki links and wrapper templates.

WONTFIX per comment 3 and the absence of objections.
