The converter Template:Convert/2 will convert 2 amounts at once, allowing any range words/text between the 2 amounts. However, both amounts are treated as the same unit type. The output unit must be specified, or put "0" for the default output unit.

Usage:  {{convert/2 |5|by|6|m|ft}}
{{convert/2 |5|x|6|m|ft}}
{{convert/2 |5.5|up to|6|m|ft}}
{{convert/2 |15|rarely|20|km|mi|abbr=on}}

The template has the same parameters as Template:Convert, and so it allows abbreviation abbr=in or abbr=out or abbr=none, wikilinks lk=on, lk=in or lk=out, and adjective mode adj=on. The separator can also be a semicolon: disp=semi, disp=or, disp=comma, disp=x & disp=b (default parentheses). Using optional parameter "warn=yes" will warn when the separator is an unusual word (other than: to, by, and, or, -, +/-, x, xx or comma).

Examples

The following examples show various separator text, with p=2 to round the precision to 2 decimal places:

  • {{convert/2 |5|by|6|m|ft}}        → 5 by 6 metres (16 by 20 ft)
  • {{convert/2 |5|x|6|m|ft|p=2}}     → 5×6 metres (16.40×19.69 ft)
  • {{convert/2 |7,550|rarely|7,600|km|mi}} → 7,550 rarely 7,600 kilometres (4,690 rarely 4,700 mi)
  • {{convert/2 |7|to|8|km|mi|abbr=on}}    → 7 to 8 km (4.3 to 5.0 mi)
  • {{convert/2 |7|to|8|km|mi|adj=on}}      → 7-to-8-kilometre (4.3-to-5.0 mi)
  • {{convert/2 |10|-|20|°C|F|disp=or}}         → 10–20 °C or 50–68 °F
  • {{convert/2 |11|-|22|°C|F|disp=semi}}     → 11–22 °C; 52–72 °F
  • {{convert/2 |40|-|50|°F|C|lk=on }}     → 40–50 °F (4–10 °C)
  • {{convert/2 |45|-|55|°F|C|disp=x| in winter (|)}}     → 45–55 °F<b/> in winter (7–13 °C)
  • {{convert/2 |5+1/2|by|6+1/3|m|ft}}    → 5+12 by 6+13 metres (18 by 21 ft)

The range-words are: to, by, and, or, -, +/-, x, xx & comma. Display types: disp=comma, disp=semi, disp=or, disp=s, disp=2 (or disp=out), disp=# (or disp=number), disp=x and disp=b. The results are identical to using Template:Convert for each amount individually.
