Interwiki links are external links that behave like internal links. They are typically links to other mediawiki projects. For example the link to the wikipedia main page could be written using the external link notation [ wikipedia] which results in wikipedia or using the interlink notation [[w:Main Page|wikipedia]]which results in wikipedia.

The following are some examples of interwiki prefixes which are available by default:
