What can this extension do?[edit | edit source]
Allows you to compare wikis in two separate languages side by side. For an example, see http://fr.wikisource.org/wiki/Criton_(trad._Cousin)?match=en. See Wikisource:DoubleWiki Extension for more information.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Appending ?match=<lang code> (or &match=<lang code> ) to a url allows you to see a side by side comparision of a page with the same page in another language.
You can use an empty div with a title attribute (for example
<div title="some title"/>) to force certain sections to line up.
