code de
style: italic

{{lang-de}} is a template usually used to indicate to readers that the previous term or phrase is translated from a foreign language; one parameter is necessary: the German language term or phrase. It should generally be placed after the English translation of the German term or phrase. That German term is shown in italics unless it's wrapped inside {{Noitalic}} or the |italic= parameter specifies otherwise.

The parameter |links=no will prevent the language name from being linked.

The parameter |lit=literal translation renders a literal translation of the term within single quotes.
