  • If the verse refers to a book in the same language or author, wikilink to the title or author page on WS within the same language. When these pages don't exist, still wikilink leaving the red link for future expansion.

Second Priority Same Language Wikipedia

  • If the verse refers to a historical fact (place, person) in the same language, wikilink to the title on WS within the same language.

Third Priority

  • No English translation exists for a title, so no linking. Leave text.
