==How to Add Yourself==
 
 
For each language you wish to include, add <code><nowiki>{{lang </nowiki>''code''-''fluency''<nowiki>}}</nowiki></code> to your user page.
 
 
Replace ''code'' with the ISO 639 code for the language and replace ''fluency'' with <code>native</code>, <code>fluent</code> or <code>some</code>. Wikipedia has a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639-1_codes list of ISO 639-1 language codes] (if there is no ISO 639-1 code, ISO 639-3 codes can be used instead).
 
 
For example, if you are a native English speaker, you would add <code><nowiki>{{lang en-native}}</nowiki></code>. If you're a fluent speaker of Spanish, you would add <code><nowiki>{{lang es-fluent}}</nowiki></code> and if you can speak some Russian, you would add <code><nowiki>{{lang ru-some}}</nowiki></code>.
 
 
If you are the first person to add a language/fluency level, you may find that there is no existing template, in which case you may want to create the page by copying and adapting the code from an existing template, e.g. [[:Template:lang en-native|lang en-native]], [[:Template:lang en-fluent|lang en-fluent]] and [[:Template:lang en-some|lang en-some]].
