Citoid generate different citation in arwiki compared with enwiki
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Hello,
I moved this comment (T262129#6447832) to separate task, so:

There's a question raised on arwiki that when you try to automatic generate cite in arwiki it's not give the same result on enwiki, for example if you try this link:

In arwiki:
Ian; Burns, Ian R. (1979). African Boundaries: A Legal and Diplomatic Encyclopaedia (باللغة الإنجليزية). C. Hurst. ISBN 978-0-903983-87-7.

In enwiki:
Brownlie, Ian; Burns, Ian R. (1979). African Boundaries: A Legal and Diplomatic Encyclopaedia. C. Hurst. ISBN 978-0-903983-87-7.

Note: (باللغة الإنجليزية) mean (In English)

It's likely a difference between Cite book on en wiki and the template that is used on ar wiki for books?

I think we need to see the source code of the template like {{cite book|title=|author1=|first1=}} in english and arabic
