The Has property description property is a special property in Semantic MediaWiki with a built-in meaning: it adds the possibility to localize the context help of properties. It was introduced starting with Semantic MediaWiki

Has property description is also exported as skos:scopeNote.2 3



On property page "SomePropertyName" one would add:

[[Has property description::Is a property that...@en]]
[[Has property description::Es handelt sich um ein Attribut mit ...@de]]
[[Has property description::このプロパティは。。。@ja]]

NoteNote:  Appending a language code with @?? with ?? replaced by the applicable language code is required. The annotated language code is being stored via the "Language Code". See also the help page on datatype "Monolingual text" for further information on this.
