The EOL:Website-recognised_by_hierarchy_agent_as_a_rank/en_16081 highlighted comment was created in this revision.

Can someone explain what this is about, and give me an example of how this string would be produced on the site?

    These keys have all changed (there is a family of them), but I shall add descriptions to the translation files.

    Where "rank" is one of the variables, they resolve in formats similar to this: "Species recognized by Integrated Taxonomic Information System:" or "Integrated Taxonomic Information System as a Taxon". In the latter case, this entry would be seen as a paragraph under a header named "Recognized by". These can get more complex, as occasionally the values are created with Rails' #to_sentence method. Thus, you can end up with "The Integrated Taxonomic Information System and T Orrell (custodian) in Catalogue of Life as a Taxon", where the "and" was inserted between two values for the "recognized_by" variable. These do not need to read with prefect grammar, as they are meant to be citations and not flowing speech.

    Hope that helps.
