This template allows the regularly updated wikitext to produce tables of Wikipedias by size. The wikitext refers to "/lang" for use on List of Wikipedias, but there the also regularly updated longer wikitext without template calls is used, because of the limitation mentioned below.

(Thus for overviews of all languages the pre-expand include size is proportional to the square of the number of languages.)
