Add disambiguation comments only when two (or more) works are similar enough to be confused, not just because they have the same name. For example, there's not much use in adding ''"Scorpions song"'' to [[work:ffbdb1ba-cc7d-37e4-907e-3d5abf4a8d56|Blackout]] just because other artists have songs called Blackout. On the other hand, a translation of a work with the same name as the original might deserve a disambiguation to make it more obvious, like with [[work:0f984c2c-0734-301f-bfc2-a15095f0d21c|Dreams come true]] ''("Japanese version")'' by BoA and the original [[work:ea62b94f-615a-3a74-b276-26f3cafbb077|Korean version]].

Status: This is an official style guideline.

Type

Work types should only be used on works that specifically match the chosen type (not every work needs to have a work type!).

Disambiguation comment

Add disambiguation comments only when two (or more) works are similar enough to be confused, not just because they have the same name. For example, there's not much use in adding "Scorpions song" to Blackout just because other artists have songs called Blackout. On the other hand, a translation of a work with the same name as the original might deserve a disambiguation to make it more obvious, like with Dreams come true ("Japanese version") by BoA and the original Korean version.
