{{tl2}} differs in that it displays an arguably clearer result like {{tlx}}, and also takes the named parameters 'SISTER=xx' and 'LANG=ll', so that it may also be used to list and link to templates on other English and non-English language sister projects.

{{tlx}} displays with the same enhanced presentation, and also expands several 'placeholder' parameters to generate a sample template call.


 {{Tl|template name to display}}
 {{Tl2|template name to display}} -- local link, just like Tl.
 {{Tl2|SISTER=V:|template name to display}} -- displays a template on Wikiversity
 {{Tl2|LANG=fr.|SISTER=wikisource|template name to display}} -- displays a template 
                       on the French Wikisource sister project.

{{Tl|x0}} {{x0}}
{{Tl2|x1}} {{x1}}
{{Tl2|SISTER=M:|3x}} {{3x}}
