The English label part concerned is a bit confusing. I'd suggest changing it to applies to or applies to part. Danrok (talk) 23:30, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

applicable to may be best. Danrok (talk) 23:46, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
That sounds better indeed. I couldn't think of a nice label, thanks :). --Zolo (talk) 06:52, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
On second thought I am not so sure: it has to be clear that the property means "part of the subject item for which the statement applies". "Applies to" can probably have other meanings, like "EU directive: instance of law / qualifier: applies to: European Union". --Zolo (talk) 06:06, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
OK, if you think it should only be used in that specific way, then applicable to part. Danrok (talk) 13:44, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
Done. Actually, I cannot think of any example where it would be a bad thing to apply it in the sense "applicable to something else", but still, that is conceptually different, so I think it is best to be cautious and create two properties (better merge than demerge). --Zolo (talk) 06:59, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Generalizing this propertyEdit

It has been suggested to generalize this property with a new label "applies to" to be used in any context. Any objection or should we create a new property instead? See also: Wikidata:Properties_for_deletion#New_deletion_proposal.--Micru (talk) 13:14, 10 July 2014 (UTC)


Please see above. --- Jura 22:21, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

example for property useEdit

I'm trying to put example for using this property. I found it used on Q30, in P:P1549. I tried to use here (p518) P:P1855 and also P:P2271, and it didn't go very well. any suggestions?Hummingbird (talk) 18:24, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

Should also be possible for referencesEdit

see Portraits of Johannes and Anna Cuspinian (Q16590328)--Oursana (talk) 08:55, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

In my eyes this property should be used as a qualifier there and better would be references that source the info for both the right and the left part. --Marsupium (talk) 20:20, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
