The measurement-converter Template:Convert often provides many benefits, including:

  • default conversion to the most-likely other unit, as readers would expect.
  • typesetting the non-breaking space between amounts and unit symbols (joins "9 km").
  • auto-rounding of amounts, such as converting "300" rounded to the nearest hundred.
  • specifying significant digits, such as cases where "120" is exact, as sigfig=3.
  • converting ranges, or sets of up to 4 amounts at once.
  • converting fractions, such as: 2 12 feet (76 സെ.m).
  • tracking the use of various units, such as counting articles which use "cubic yards".
  • similar calculations on other-language wikipedias, translating unit names into other languages (still in development).
  • the default spelling is metre, kilometre and litre. To obtain the US spelling of meter, kilometer and liter one inserts "sp=us". This is the way one controls the spelling and maintains consistency within an article.

There are various other benefits, as well. Also read the ongoing discussions at Template_talk:Convert,
