Subcategories with Country-code or full country name?[edit]

The two-letter country code by en:ISO 3166-1 is language neutral, shorthand comfortable, and easier in a tabular fashion.

The full country name has to use a specific language, is easier to understand, but only for those familiar with that language.

At the moment I am not sure. I had first introduced "Arriva DK", than thought that this might lead to misunderstandings, changed everything to "Arriva Denmark" -- but then thought that the english version of the country name is not so nice to the Danes, and may be not so familiar for people in Portugal seeking image material for their Arriva article.

Any opinions?

My project is to move all images currently directly under "Arriva" to company or country specific subcategories of Arriva. I have edited the German language article on Arriva, and was looking for an image representing each of the countries where Arriva is operating. Such subcategories would make it easier to look for such an image.

My thinking now goes into this direction: to use the two-letter ISO-country code (cc), and to put in the text field of the Category:Arriva an explanation like

No need to create some special rules for Arriva categories. The real official names of the national companies should be used - and when it is not specific enough, Commons use the country names in English. --ŠJů (talk) 03:31, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
