Converts a text in the form "Name(s) Surname" to the form "Surname, Name(s)", removing all diacritics in the process.


  • {{NameSorter}} returns the contents of {{PAGENAME}} after processing it.

Syntax with an optional parameter:

  • {{NameSorter|Antonín Dvořák}} returns "Dvorak, Antonin "

This template is meant to be used in conjunction with the magic word DEFAULTSORT inside Composer and User pages, delivering to it an appropriate sort key.

  • {{DEFAULTSORT:{{NameSorter}}}}

In the cases in which the template returns an invalid sort key, as for example "Rue, Pierre de la", use a textual key instead:

  • {{DEFAULTSORT:La Rue, Pierre de}}
