The DoubleWiki extension displays an article and its translation on two columns of the same page. It was written specifically for Wikisource.


The extension is enabled on all subdomains. To see it, add '?match=xx' to the url of a page, where 'xx' is the language code of an existing interlanguage link.

In wikis that have configured it, you may click on the "⇔" symbols near interlanguage links. In order to enable these symbols in your subdomain, copy the following function to your wiki's Common.js file (you must be a sysop to do this) or your user's javascript skin overrides, if enabled:

    var doc_url = document.URL;
    // iterate over all interlanguage links
    $('.interlanguage-link>a[hreflang]').each(function() {
      var lang = this.getAttribute("hreflang");
      var qm = doc_url.indexOf( doc_url.indexOf('?title=') != -1 ? '&match=' : '?' );
      var url = doc_url+"?match="+lang;
      if( qm != -1 ) url = doc_url.substring(0,qm)+"?match="+lang;
      this.outerHTML += "<a href='"+url+"'> &hArr;</a>";
