    That link doesn't work anyway in all countries where the way to write a date is "19 September" instead of "September 19". The wiki-link will use the local version of wikipedia, so my result is empty.

    Lets try to force all countries worldwide to use ISO.

      Oh, my excuses. It isn't documented in What shortcuts can I use for linking to other information? and I never noticed it doesn't work. Do you mean, if I set my locales to cs_CZ, I'd need to write [wp://19. zř]? Where does this cleverness happen, at PerlMonks or at Wikipedia?

        In your Display Settings, you can choose a Language preference for WikiMedia links, which decides the prefix you get instead of en.wikipedia.org.

      Wow, didn't realize that. Does this only apply to dates? I'll put the full link in there for now.

        I guess it simply uses "http://$language.wikipedia.org/wiki/$whateverthetextis".

        The most correct, but convoluted way would be to use node author's language to look up the entry, get the "read this in another language", and select the link according to the reader's language. If the reader's language doesn't have an entry there, hmmm.... select according to a preference list (reader's browser or so)?

        Easiest would be to stick to english - we non-native speakers are already used to that, and can press the "read in another language" ourselves ;-)
