While this Wiktionary is known as the English Wiktionary, it is a matter of fundamental policy that this dictionary includes "all words in all languages". This means that our entries need to reflect the structure and peculiarities of a wide variety of different languages – modern and ancient, widespread and rare, attested and reconstructed, written in a range of scripts, and so forth.
The pages in the category Category:Wiktionary language considerations deal with how to manage entries in a specific language, or instances where words in that language appear in other entries (for example, in etymologies and translation tables).
There are some general issues that affect a wide range of languages. These include:
- Wiktionary:Headword-line templates for a list of headword-line templates ordered by language.
- Wiktionary:Inflection-table templates for a list of conjugation and declension templates ordered by language.
- Wiktionary:Language names for standardization of various language names.
- Appendix:Writing systems and alphabets
