The following documentation shows how to add information in extra languages to pages using {{CardTable2}}.


When choosing the name of a card, one should go with the name it has been released under in its language version of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Official Card Game or Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game. If the card has not been released in either of those, use its name from its language version of the most recent video game or the manga. If the card does not exist in any of those or none of them have been released in this language, a localized translation of a language it has been officially named in can be used (preferably the Japanese or English name) and {{Unofficial name|Languagename}} should be used to note that the name is not official.


The article title is displayed as the card's English name by default. If the card's name is different from the article title (e.g. "Jinzo 7", "Dark Magician (Arkana)" and "Dark Magician (Bandai)"), use one of the following:

  • name: Normally used if the article name is different than the English name.
  • cardgame: This is used to display the OCG/TCG counterpart of a card from another game. It will also display as the English name, unless name is used.

The following can be used to add alternate English names. These should not be used unless different than the main English name.

  • ae_name: The card's Asian-English name, prior to the syncing of Asian-English terminology with regular English.
  • altname: Uncategorized alternate name.
