When linking a term in an article for further definition, the plurals problem is best handled by placing the braces before the s.

So if the term is baseballs, [[baseballs] creates a plural term. But if you enter it as [[baseball]]s, the term created will be singular.

In the agency to agencies situation, usually you will have to redirect agencies, although it is possible to enter agency in the related terms list (but then you will have both terms on the wanted list).

Multiword terms can cause problems. Try to get them standardized if you can and use redirect for the other forms.

Some people use pipes as | but I don't know how they work.
